Why have all but Royal Caribbean stopped summer cruises in the Caribbean?

The high season in the region, is typically Dec-April & the reason is that there is better weather with lower humidity & hurricane risk. P&O from UK tend to cruise the Med in summer & the Caribbean in winter.

Very easy answer and you follow the demand which includes Alaska and the European cruiser along with those Americans who have not traveled overseas.

Isn't Carnival still going to the Carib in the summer months? Maybe they've pulled out also.

More money to be made on cruises to Europe, Med, Baltic and Alaska rather than the Carib.
