We love sailing the Caribbean in December. It gives us a chance to get away from the cold at home and the weather at that time in the Caribbean is just perfect!

Four seasons. Cruise to anywhere.

Anytime is a great time, depending on your personal schedules.

We tend to cruise in the Fall and Winter. We used to cruise in the Spring and I'm not sure why we quit doing that. Summer is really the only time we avoid cruising, more families sailing and it seems to be more expensive. Plus my DH says it's too hot in the Caribbean then. Even when we sailed in Alaska it was September. But, I would probably go anytime.

it is too hot in the Caribbean for a summer cruise, but Alaska and the Med would be great. Winter is great for the Caribbean. Spring and fall are good wherever you want to go.

We tend to sail in late winter, or early spring. Seems to get me out of my winter funk...

Earliest I have departed was January 5th, latest May 5th

We do enjoy sailing in October with the Halloween theme on board.

We like to cruise during the month of December. Prices to the Caribbean or a little cheaper in during the rest of the year. We also have cruised during hurricane season.

For us it depends on our available work or family schedule, and that determines the when and where we go. Love to get away in the winter to somewhere warm. Yet when you need a break a cruise is wonderful.

I would have to say that any time is cruise time. Each season has its appeal. Love cruising warmer climates in the winter and also love the December cruises just before Christmas. Problem with those though is that by March I need another one. Love the fall cruises as well. Hard to pin down just one as a favourite.
