We may need to change our original cruise plans do to me going back to work. We are supposed to be going on the Enchantment in Dec to the West Carribean. B/c I am a teacher I may not be able to get the time off needed. So we are looking at going on a 4 night West Carribean cruise in August. I am looking for some feedback as to whether this is a good time to go. The ship departs Aug. 12 and ports of call are Fort Lauderdale, Key West and Cozumel.
We went on a similar cruise a few years back, and the only problems we had was the heat. Being from the northeast, we were not used to 92 deg temps, even in August. The humidity made it almost unbearable, but a few frozen cocktails helped. Unfortunately, the cruise was over by the time we could acclimate to the hot weather. The sudden thunderstorms were the only weather related problems we had, and they only lasted about a half hour. My suggestion is to enjoy the cruise.
