november rainy season?


Recommended Posts

Ive just read this and now Im worried (mind you I worry over anything LOL) - how bad is it on the likes of curacao, aruba, st thomas and st martin?



We always cruised those islands in November and always had beautiful weather.

The "dry" season runs from late March to May in most of the Caribbean. That being said, most of the islands have showers off and on all the time! It comes from the mountains that make up the islands! The only real exception is Aruba, which is a true "desert" island. (Think Vegas, without irrigation!!) Because it's pretty flat, it gets very little rain.

If it's raining when you arrive at port, chances are it will clear before you get off the ship!!!

been on 3 cruises in nov an have not had 1 rainy day, but i know you could get a shower on any given day.


That's good to here as we are on the Mariner Nov 12th (Eastern) . This will be our 5th cruise but our first in November. Our TA said November is her favorite time to cruise.

I lived in coastal Venezuela many years. November will see rain from time to time, but it is very light and comes in short-lived showers. Most days, however, are just heavenly in November.


We did have a bad day in Costa Maya during a late November cruise in which the port experienced a drenching tropical downpour that lasted the entire day! That kind of thing is quite exceptional though. It can happen, but it is unusual in November in the Southern Caribbean.
