Where we go is still undecided...somewhere with warm weather, beaches, and snorkling. But does anyone have an idea of where a good place to see whales and dolphins (on excursions OR on the ship)around the end of November to the first of December?

Primary whalewatching time is late Dec to Feb in Mexico (Baja peninsula, around Cabo San Lucas, or along the coast southward near Puerto Vallarta), or late May through summer in Alaska. Hawaii's whale season is Jan through March. Late November is not prime whale watching time, to my knowledge - sorry!

I have seen the most whales while in Alaska, the most dolphins in Hawaii. Sadly, not when you are planning your cruise.

This site is pretty informative on Whale watching, Whale watching guide

You can check the different locations and find what excursions are available at what time of year.

I'm so pleased someone has highlighted the whale-watching down Mexico way, we are doing this area for the first time next Feb and didn't know about this until now... we already have a mini-suite with balcony booked, so this is going to be an added bonus if we see some along the way.
Thanks for the info
