Southern Caribbean cruises headed to Dominica will get your whales also year round. Just remember it is Mother Nature so she may or may not cooperate.

Also, Maine/Nova Scotia cruises may also have whale watching.
Both cruises along the Pacific Coast to Puerto Vallarta were fantastic for seeing whales/dolphins along the way from December through to March (ish).
Hot spots are just prior to and around Cabo San Lucas (migrating greys and humpbacks) and also Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta) for Humpbacks.
If you have a sharp eye and a good pair of binoculars (and patience); you could have spectacular sightings (we did!).
