It depends on what you want for the best time- best time to get the best deal or the best time to go period. It also depends on what you are looking for as far as your cruise. If you are someone who doesn't want to go when a ship may have a lot of children or if you are hoping to go in a less crowded time. It really depends on what you are looking for.
There is hurricane season which can lower prices but also there are 3 day weekends during hurricane season where the prices are higher due to the demand. Hurricane season is June 1st through November 30th with the majority of hurricanes in August and September.
The winter season is popular (and more expensive) because people from colder climates want to get out of the cold and spend some time in the Caribbean where it is warmer. Also, people that think the Caribbean is too hot during the summer will travel there during other times of the year to be a bit cooler.
Consult a good travel agent (and when I mean good.. I mean someone who will take the time to listen to what your needs are). Websites like Orbitz etc.. won't give you that personalized attention and counseling a good travel agent can offer!
You might also want to take a look at the cruise line promos and discounts. The cruise lines provide a lot of them now as they want to increase the popularity of cruising. Just because there is a promotional discount doesn't necessarily mean you will end up on a less crowded cruise ship. The promotions are there so the cruise line can fill the ship. They never want to sail with any empty cabins. There are promotions that are not advertised. Some of these are age-related, based on where you live, if you are in the military or other public service (police, fire, etc.), or in some cases even if you are a member of a union. Not every category above has a discount on every sailing though. Check with your travel agent.
There are some good tutorials on YouTube ... just put in search term cruise prices.
summer because its better.
Caribbean cruises have a high season. The high season is late June to Aug.
The time for a cheap cruise is around the beginning of Summer.
Royal Caribbean or Norwegian Sky cruise.
Caribbean hurricane season is from June to November, so I recommend the Spring or Thanksgiving or Christmas time.
The best time all depends on the experience you want to encounter. If you want to have a hot day with clear skys go in July. But if your looking for a nice and cool cruise go more during fall.
............. The best time to take a cruise really depends on where you want to cruise. The fall and winter months are best for cruising in the Caribbean and the Pacific coast of Mexico. It's also a good time of year to cruise to Southeast Asia and Australia / New Zealand (it will be summer there when it's winter here). The summer is the best time to cruise to Alaska and to cruise along the coastlines in Europe. Fall is great for cruising along the northeastern coast of the US to see the changing foliage. Cruising is good at any time of year, it just depends on where you would like to go.
The best time to take a cruise weather-wise is during spring. This will then translate to summer which eliminates any chances of stormy weather.Ê
December through April are considered to be the best months to cruise in the Caribbean. September and October are considered to be the months with the most storms. The travel cost is less expensive but not the best time based on weather conditions.
The best cruise line for any type of cruise is easily Caribbean cruise lines. If you only want a weekend cruise, they will accommodate you. They offer weekend cruises all the time.
Hurricane season is considered the worst time weather wise for a Caribbean Cruise. Hurricane season runs from August until October.
