Any time in Oct/Nov/Dec/Jan is usually ok in the caribbean. If it rains its still hot and it usually dries up very fast so it doesn't spoil the fun! I go to the caribbean nearly every winter and the rain has never been bad...just occasional short shower.

I've always gone in late December and/or January (mainly because i feel the the weeks after Christmas tend to be a bit flat and depressing after Christmas) and the weather has always been great. If it does rain, it is usually only for a very short time and it is far enough away from the end of the huurican season, that if an island has been badly hit by one, the cleaning up opration has been completed. I don't see why feb or mar should not be a good time to go either.

And the godmother is..

By Leanne Mudd

Cruise ships are lucky to have some of the most prestigious and famous godmothers. Having a godmother for a ship is a longstanding naval tradition. New ships are to be sponsored by a civilian which is typically a woman. With this honorific title, the cruise ship godmother is selected to bring good luck and protection to the vessel as well as being part of the naming ceremony.

Smoking Should NOT be Allowed ...

By Zara Kelly

When we book a cruise, part of our job is managing the whole experience. However, this week I have been upset to hear reports that two separate clients have been disturbed by others smoking on their balcony, this was on two different ships ex USA. We all know at sea that smoke is going to blow around!First, let me explain that some cruise lines have a strict no smoking policy in cabins and on balconies, which my clients would have been aware of. Most cruise lines can charge you a cleanup char...
