While cruise ships can typically "outrun" most storms, passengers may still experience rough seas as their ship skirts the edges of a storm. On rare occasions, a ship may have to go through the outer bands of storm to reach safe haven in a port, though most times ships will go out to sea to avoid storms.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 to November 30 with the peak season from mid-August to late October.
But the state that may draw some confusion is North Carolina, which has been hit by 55 hurricanes since 1851, making it the third most hurricane-prone state in the U.S. and the most hurricane-prone state that doesn't border the Gulf of Mexico.

North Carolina's coast is one of the nation's areas most open to a direct hurricane strike because its coastline extends out. Heavy winds, tornadoes, strong thunderstorms, flooding, storm surge and landslides can all be caused by hurricanes causing tragic damage.
At the beginning of the season, NOAA predicted 13-20 named storms and 6-10 hurricanes. They also projected 3-5 major hurricanes (hurricanes of category 3 strength or stronger). Scientists at NOAA said there was a 60% chance that Hurricane Season 2021 would feature above-normal activity.

Fish and other ocean creatures face deadly conditions during a hurricane — sometimes the extreme weather strands them on land or far out at sea. Hurricanes can generate massive waves, so most sea creatures avoid the rough surface water and swim to calmer seas.
Weather conditions such as windage and wave actions are all included in basic ship design. Could one survive a Category 5 hurricane? Yes, of course, but prudent shiphandlers would do their best to avoid it if at all possible in order to avoid superficial damage.
