Our first cruise was to Alaska in July of 1996.
It rained every day by one. We still went on every excursion and had a GREAT time.
After 15 cruises we still think of this as being our best cruise.
Don't worry - You'll have a wonderful time no matter what the weather.
Yes, because the ship activities will go on rain or shine! I suppose if you are a serious pool person you might be a little disappointed, but the ships have a lot going on. Have fun!

On my last cruise, it was forecasted to rain every day as well. It never rained at all! So, don't get discouraged about that possibility. It might not happen. There are always other things to do when it is raining. Enjoy!! :-)
It said rain every day when I looked for our cruise back in April. It only rained once and it was short. The rain will probally be short and then get sunny again. Dont worry. It was cloudy alot on our cruise.
Raining in the Caribbean is different than home too. It will still be warm. It usually passes pretty quickly too from what we've encountered. Rain will not put a damper on your fun!
Funny, we were in Barbados one time. Just enjoying ourselves in the water. It began to rain and everyone started running for cover! Strange!
I wonder if it is like Hawaii. If you look at the forcast, it says rain everyday in Maui and especially in Kauai. At both islands, there was rain at night and early in the morning, but the good part of the day was always clear. I think tropical weather is like that.
Rain or shine, you will still have lots of opportunities to have a great time! On my last Alaska cruise, we had some rain most of the time, but it was a fantastic cruise. There are always more things that you can do on a cruise that time to do them all. As someone else mentioned, rain in the forecast doesn't mean it will rain all day either. The sea winds can bring quick changes in the weather and usually when the sky clears, it is gorgeous!
