Would You Cruise Here in January?

Recommended Posts


My husband and I are planning a long'ish vacation in January of 2019. (It has to be late December through early February due to work schedule reasons.) Ideally, we'd like to due a Windstar Bora-Bora cruise with some days added on one end. Our back up is a trip to the Maldives. My concern is the weather. I understand that January is the rainy season and the weather can be iffy. I'd be devastated if we planned this amazing trip and it rained the whole time.

So what is anybody's experience with the weather in this part of the world? Who has cruised or visited that region at that time of year? Should we risk it or move on to choice # two?

Thanks in advance for the help!

:) Jeanne

January is fine.


We have been there many times in January.


Weather has been nice and a great time to be away from cold weather back home.

We did a Paul Gaugain Cruise this January. We were worried about the weather too - leading up to the cruise the forecast showed rain every single day. We had a little bit of rain our first day and then again one evening. It didn’t bother us at all.
