I am taking the December 6, 2009 cruise out of Baltimore to the Bahamas and am wondering about the weather there. Will it be warm enough to enjoy snorkling and such. I had someone tell me they went and it was cold. Please let there be someone out there who disagrees. Thanks Q
Phewww, I am so relieved to here that you had a warm experience there. Prior to booking I just assumed it was always warm there. I am afraid to book an excursion now because I am afraid it will be cold. Thank you so very much for your feedback. Q
Weather in the Bahamas in December is the same as south Florida weather, it's rare that a real cold front comes thru that early in December, usually January is our coldest month. We have been on 3 day cruises to the Bahamas during November and December and the weather was beautiful...nice and warm in the 80's (and no fears about a hurricane). We took an excursion in Nassau to Blue Lagoon island and the water was a little cool but felt great because it was so hot out. You should be fine weather-wise unless Mother Nature decides to surprise us with a rare cold front.
I also agree about early Dec, and the probablity it will be gorgeous, January is the month there that it can get chilly , as a friend of mine experienced, and we were on a cruise that had rough seas in January, in the Bahamas....the only time I ever came close to being seasick...
Plan on a glorious cruise!
Trip, with her book & tea!

Well, I typed a long response and then it got deleted, so here is my short response.
December cruise ... great weather temps in the 80s in the Bahamas
March cruise ... woke up in Miami on day of departure and it was 49 degrees. High that day was in the mid 60s and very gusty winds. Bahamas was a little better with temps in the 70s. News station in Miami said it was the coldest air of the entire winter season ... in March! St. T and St. M delivered the hot humid weather I was looking for.
You never know, but go with a positive attitude and you will have a wonderful time!

Thanks for leaving me a long message even though it was deleted, your attempt was greatly appreciated since I do love information. What I have come to realize is that I have signed on for a pot luck vacation, is that positive thinking on my part? No, but seriously, I will hope for the best and know if I am able to spend time with people like those of you have taken time out to give me feedback here, I will be a very lucky individual. Thanks Q
