That is over a month in the future. No weather forecast would be accurate that far in advance.

Weather.com will be a good site to watch closer to the time.

The radar on cruise ships can spot bad weather way out and go around it.

Just make sure you have travel insurance for your cruise.

Oh didn't know those info...will make sure to do that..does it come included in cruise packages generally or do we get it separately. Sorry this is the first time booking a cruise. Also there were lots of cruise booking sites online.. Any insight on which would be the best to book?

Yes, there have been hurricane warnings the last week of August.

There have also been years that there were no hurricane watches or warnings at all.

No one will know until about August 23...and even then it will only be valid for 72 hours.

Regarding travel insurance for your cruise, I suppose you could get it through your cruise line. I get mine through my travel agent. IMO, it's very important.

Scroll down this page for a graph showing the weather at Miami International Airport for all of 2012.

Cruise ships are proficient at modifying their itineraries to avoid bad weather. Customers sometimes have to accept unwelcome changes, but overall, the industry's record in hurricane season is quite good.
