We are planning a New Years cruise and I was wondering, how is the weather, can I do some excursions or is it too cold to snorkel?

We have been on one New Years Cruise and the temp was in the 80's every day. The Caribbean doesn't really have a winter, it is very even temp most of the year- they just have a dry season and a wet.

Thanks so much, so I guess I am good to go for some snorkling or water excursions. I guess I thought it would be too cold.

It looks great other than you have 2 of the same posted.

Just delete the duplicate code in your signature, and it should be fine.

We have done a few Christmas cruises. I have to tell you, I am a weenie, but I wear a wet suit when snorkeling. For most people, the water is fine. It's normally in the 80s, but I freeze if it's not like a bathtub. The only place I have been able to swim without a wet suit in December has been Trunk Bay in St. John, but it was cold to me at first. I doubt you'll have any problems and snorkeling is a MUST in the Caribbean. Best wishes for a fantastic cruise!

Been in the ocean in Jamaica in Jan. and the natives called the water "refreshing" and complained of "chill bumps". we thought it was fabulous, warmer than most hotel pools. The ocean in the caribbean is always tolerable, usually comfortable, and the sea life so beautiful it will be distracting should it not be comfortable. I have arthritis and have never worn a wet suit and never been bothered by water temperature.

Thanks for the comments Penny3333 and Spoheat!!!, I am so glad to hear your comments. I feel better now knowing I won't freeze to death. I can be a bit of a baby if I get too cold so it sounds to me that It will be a great time.
