I have one week of vacation booked for the end of February. Of course I will go on a cruise!
I am concerned about the temperature in February since all my other cruises to the Caribbean have been in Nov-Dec.
What temperature would I expect in the Eastern ports? Is it bikini beach warm or t-shirt warm? Or should I not risk it and book a southern Caribbean cruise out of San Juan??
Does anyone have any February cruising experience in the Eastern Caribbean (St Thomas, St Maartin, Grand Turk)?

The Caribbean should be somewhere around mid 80's in St Thomas and St Martin. Maybe a little lower in Grand Turk.

It will be awesome! Since you're from Canada, anything above 60 should be bikini weather, right Normally, it'll be in the mid 80s as Cruise Fanatic said, sometimes even higher. Have a wonderful time!!!!

LOL. Yes, Penny. You would think that I would be warm coming from Canada in February. But I am one of those people that will be in long sleeves and pants when all others are in tank tops and shorts. But I think 80F is warm enough for me.
Nothing has been booked yet but I love the planning stage to a cruise.

I thought I was the only one who froze below 80F. I'm in a sweater now and it's in the upper 60s. It's supposed to be 82 today, but I'll be cold in the shade

80 is a bit too hot for us. we are in the 50's right now and 40's at night and it's nice. We like it in the 70's to be comfortable.

We typically take cruises in February and have never had a problem with cool temps *except the first and last day, since we usually sail out of NYC. It's usually been in the 80s in the Virgin Islands...I think it was 90-something when we were in Antigua.
