Default The Caribbean in January ?

Leaving on the Caribbean Princess on the 7th of January. This is the first time we have cruised in January and wonder how the weather will be? We have cruised in November and all was fine. I plan to drive to FL and hope the weather holds. Any Idea's

the weather in January will be just about the same as what you encountered when you cruised in November. I would plan on bringing a pair of lightweight slacks and a lightweight jacket or sweater if you are planning on spending an evening in Ft. Lauderdale.
A lightweight track suit is a great idea for cool breezes

The northern tropics have two seasons -- the humid season from May to October and the dry season from November to April. Meteorologists officially regard the period from June to November as huricane season, but the worst tends to be from July through October.

Basically, expect that the Caribbean will have high temperatures in the mid-80's and sea temperatures around 70. The Mayan coast of Mexico and the east coast of central America tend to be considerably warmer (mid-90's) during the day due to the chinook effect of the mountains. Be sure to bring a light waterproof jacket and perhaps a sweatshirt or sweater in case you get an abnormally cool day. If you are cruising from Florida, the first and last days may be a bit cooler because you're on the fringe of the tropics.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.
