Well July has some negative points...It is hot and due to hurricane season, the weather and ports are unpredictable.. The ships are filled to the brim with families with lots and lots of kids. But then it also has lots of positive points...The weather is hot and you'll be on a cruise ship with lots of a/c and free ice cream or frozen yogurt as well as iced tea, etc. The family atmosphere we find easier than the party atmosphere but that will depend on the cruiser. We would absolutely cruise in July because any time of the year I can be on a ship is a good time of the year to cruise. We just adjust some of our expectations, we know that the itinerary can change with storms so we remain flexible and we always buy cruise insurance.
