I like Feb. in the Caribbean. Getting through the month of January at work seems less painless then.
Plan on cruising on Valentine's week next year if all goes as planned.

Hi Carole!

I want to go on the Golden Princess. Can you recommend a good TA to me.

Regards,
NJ and the rat terriers

Believe it or not , some of the best weather I've every had was the last week of October.
The worst was week the of Columbus Day. Four times -rain, rain and more rain.
Last year I was during the first week of March on the Victory we had 20 Ft. waves - that
was a real treat. So I guess bad weather can happen ant time
