moanasailing is on a distinguished road
We cruised the South Pacific for many years and would be very weary about being in the cyclone belt during the "on" season. Fiji, Tonga and American Samoa all have "hurricane holes" where cruisers stay. We know several cruisers that hung around in these areas and had big scares. We would recommend hanging out in areas that traditionally don't get cyclones: Marquesas, Kiribati, Marshall Islands. They are all close to the equator and great places to cruise.
