May and October are the really 'rainy' months. You will likely see what we often see here in Florida - thunderstorms that come fast, rain hard, then move out.
Hope your cruise is all that you hope for - and more!

Your question reminds me of my Hawaiian trip for my 40th birthday. I went to take surfing lessons.
We would be at the beach paddling our boards waiting for a wave, and a cloud would slowly drift across and it would start to sprinkle. You could see people packing their stuff up on the shore, and others getting out of the water and heading to their cars. In a few minutes the sun would come out and the beach would be completely empty for 10 - 15 miutes before the next group headed on down. It was pretty funny.
You're at the beach, it sprinkles and your afraid to get wet....HHhhmmmm
It rained a couple of times, once at night while we were at sea and once while we were on Grand Cayman. The Grand Cayman shower lasted long enough for us to go inside a beach-front restaurant and order a drink. By the time the drink arrived the sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky. We stayed for a lunch that we thoroughly enjoyed. Needless to say, we were very happy about the rain shower.

Don't worry about it. You're booked, you're going - don't let weather hold you back or give you concern. You're going to have a wonderful time!
