Caribbean cruise

I want to book a cruise for December but I'm having difficulty finding out if many of the ports are in good shape after the storms. Is there a website that addresses this or can anyone tell me if Nassau in the Bahamas, Falmouth Jamaica, Georgetown came in, and Great Stirrup Cay Bahamas are good to go?

The Cayman Islands have been spared so far.

Many have reported that St Thomas, and St Martin are not operating.

Really, your best resource is the cruise lines themselves. They will know when the effected destinations will be accepting cruise ships, and can alert you to re-routed itineraries.

I am booked for a cruise with all of the ports you have listed, my original ports were St Thomas and Tortola but the cruise ship moved us to Nassau, Falmouth and Grand Cayman.

Our original ports were St Thomas and Tortola which suffered terrible damage from the hurricanes.

From what I have read the new ports we are heading to hand little or no damage from the hurricanes.

The cruise line may not be forthcoming with the status of the port as they want to sell cruises. From what I understand if a port is not open, the cruise line generally substitutes a port. If this matters to you, dig around on the internet or at sites like cruise critic and vacations to go. Cruise critic has boards, specific to cruise areas, that you can question the cruising community.

"Cruise critic has boards, specific to cruise areas, that you can question the cruising community."

That's awesome! If I were ever to go on a cruise, I would definitely use that site to find any information I needed.

Krista they were not bashing your post. They are saying thats where cruisers should look. We have said it hundreds of times and no one ever listens. Perhaps your post will carry more weight :)
