If you go wither into your cruise personalizer on the Princess website, or the ports of call information web pages, they will have the information specific to the ports you are visiting.

Escape Completely

I'm growing older, but not up. My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck. Let the winds of time blow over my head, I'd rather die while I'm living rather then live while I'm dead.

Probably a whole lot better than Alamba's weather...

November temperatures in the Caribbean range from an average low of 75.5 degrees to an average high of 84.9 degrees. For the month of November as a whole, temperatures in the Caribbean average around 79.7 degrees.

Rain is most likely to occur around 2:00 PM during the month of November, and it is least likely to occur around 3:00 AM. As shown below, if a thunderstorm occurs in November, it is most likely to occur around 2:00 PM.

You can go to weather underground ( for very specific weather information.

We did the southern caribbean on the Sun in November- great Weather the whole time.

If you are going as far south as Bonaire, Aruba or Curacao, the weather will be a bit more arid. Their native plants include various cactus.

We love the southern caribbean. So much to see and do- not enough time to see and do it !
