That's a great time to go to the southern Caribbean!

The entire Caribbean Sea is in the northern tropics, as the equator passes through Equador and Brazil to the south. The winter is the "dry" (not very humid) season, and temperatures are still quite warm (80's to 90's) -- ideal beach weather, unless you encounter one of the occasional rainy days.

The weather will be very comfortable.

Generally, yes. Every once in a while, an extreme weather pattern develops that dumps arctic weather into southern Florida and the northern Caribbean, whereupon you always hear news reports about Florida's farmers losing a frozen orange crop followed by a transient excursion in the price of orange juice. These patterns usually last anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks when they occur, but they are pretty rare. If they happened more frequently, Florida's farmers would not bother growing citrus crops.

Back in the late 1970's, one of those extreme weather patterns brought the first recorded measurement of snowfall ever to Miami. I happened to be in the weather forecast center at my alma mater preparing a forecast at the time, so actually I saw the hourly report when it came off the teletype. Nonetheless, this is decidedly a "hundred year event" about which you should not worry.

Norm.

I think you'll be okay. Ours was in mid feb and we even got a nice pre-cruise tan in Orlando before we went down to Miami for cruise. It was in the 80's the whole time. Only one night did it get a tiny bit chilly on the ship.
