The Best Time to Visit

The most popular months to visit the Caribbean are, generally speaking December to April because:

  • The air is less humid than in the other months
  • The temperatures are cooler
  • Those living in the Northern Hemisphere want to escape their winter

However, we would recommend booking your Caribbean cruise holiday around May, June and November. Even though there is a chance of an odd shower, the benefits outweigh the drawbacks:

  • The peak season is over, thus the prices are lower
  • The weather is still comfortable
  • The beaches are less crowded
  • These months are all outside of the rain season
