It depends on your outlook really. Spring breakers can really liven up a cruise ship. It can make for some pretty wild pool deck entertainment. Same goes for late May, right when school's out "for summer" (a little Alice Cooper ref for ya'll).
If you just want to get away and relax, then late January and February are good, as well as late September to early November (but then there is that darn hurricane possibility). I've been twice in October, with not a storm with 1000 miles.

I think the best month to cruise is any month that have a vowel in it's name...

From Minnesota, January and February are the two best months for me.....after 19 cruises, I've had good weather most of the time during those two months....March works too....anytime I can be on a ship is the best time to cruise...

Happy Sailing,

I am struggling to make a decision about this very topic. The last 2 years we have cruised in late October to minimize the hurricane threat. We still ended up with bad weather because of one comming or going. While late September was storm free. You can't predict mother nature for sure. It is hard to pass up the September prices though. I must be a hurricane magnet.

we had 3 huricanes to deal with cindy and dennis, one was coming striaght at us , then turn up north during the night, cindy hit up by mobile i think we rode the wake behind it.
i love to cruise, i dont like lots of kids on the ship,
never, stay on the bottom deck, kid find a safe haven to run down the long halls at all hours of the day and night..even at 3 am

On our past cruises, we've had the smoothest Gulf of Mexico cruises in January/Feb and the smoothest Atlantic/South Caribbean in November & March.

I have to say that the Southern Caribbean March cruise was the best weather wise in every way as well. Beautiful weather and no worries about the hurricanes.

I love early May and late September, early October. Our early May cruises (first week) have been glorious and our fall cruises have been just as nice except for one overcast day this past October (first week). The May cruises have been Key West, Playa Del Carmen (you can ferry over to Cozumel or enjoy a day at the flour-sand beach in Playa Del Carmen or head into Puerto Aventuras)with two fun days at sea. The other was out of Tampa to Cozumel with two fun days at sea... so relaxing. The fall cruises have been to Half Moon Cay - just love it, St. Thomas (St. John), San Juan (don't listen to what others say), and twice to Grand Turk - Margaritaville there is so much fun and the pool is gorgeous as well as the snorkeling. Another reason I love it at these times is that most schools are still in session so that means a lot less kids under foot. You might hit a high school trip but we haven't.
