I booked the Oasis of the seas for November western carribean because it was the cheapest time to go. Now with reading some info I'm wondering if it was a bad time of year. Has anyone cruised in the carribean in November? Is most of the hurricane season done with by then. Would the weather still be warm enough for shorts or to go on excursions in the ocean. (scuba,snorkling)? I mainly chose this cruise for the ship but still want to see the ports of call. Any advice would be great.

Caribbean in November has normally high enough temperatures to sunbathe, swim, snorkeling etc.

However, one can experience a cold front with strong winds and rain passing, but that is usually over after a day. Nights can get colder than usual. I remember returning to Miami one morning primo December when some water on the pier had frozen during the night. But that was something I saw only once. Other than that I've been on ships in the caribbean during three consecutive winter seasons and never experienced longer periods of bad or cold weather.

November will be fine. The Caribbean is always good for shorts. Hurricane season should be mostly over.

We did the Eastern Carribean the first week of December- the weath was high 70s in the day- beautiful sunshine...the water was "cool" but most ventured in...the waves at night on occassion rocked a little but not bad.
