Top Answers To Bahamas Travel Questions

    For the Caribbean you'll need to decide East, typically includes Virgin Islands, West includes Mexico, Jamacia, etc. or South, think Aruba and neighboring islands. If this is your first cruise I'd recommend a shorter than 7 day trip; however, 7 days is not too long for a first. I've been to St Thomas, Tortola, Antigua (Eastern Carib) and had a great time. I've also been to Cozumel, Belize, etc. (West Carib) and had a blast. Short Bahama cruises will sometimes include Key West or the cruise lines private island. Oh, and my favorite cruise lines seems to make a stop in Nassau as necessary as going thru ATL when flying Delta---I now just stay on board when there and enjoy a mostly quiet deck and more attentive wait staff bearing drinks. I've cruised in the months of October thru February and the temps are very mild. IF a tropical storm is brewing the ships (which have their own weather station) will change course the best they can. This does not mean it will be smooth sailing since tropical systems affect large areas it just means they are not going to knowingly sail into a dangerous storm. If you sail from Florida (Port Canaveral, Miami) then a Westen Carib could turn into a trip to the East and vise versa. If you miss ports due to weather expect to be compensated for port charges only.
