In addition to checking on Cruise Critic, who closely monitors storms as they form and provides up-to-the-hour updates for cruisers, I also use the following sites for up-to-date info on storms and hurricanes.

Most tropical cyclone impacts occurred in the month of September. This coincides with the statistical peak in the eastern north Pacific hurricane season, which occurs in early September or late August.[117] Although hurricane season in the eastern north Pacific officially runs from May 15 to November 30,[118] no known tropical cyclones have impacted the peninsula in May, November, or outside the season.
