    Congratulations!! Love to read about happy clients of Janelle's, we are using them in May coming off the Glory.  Which photographer did you use?

      we did a cruise in early september because we wanted to enjoy the sun and pool on the boat our way down from MD to the bahamas.  If we had booked when it was colder, we would have been bored out of our mind.  we are sun lovers and our only days out of the sun were on the way down (because we left port at 4pm, and our way back).

        The cheapest time of year for cruising is End of Sept-Dec. The cruise companies aslo tell you in their brochure when peak season is and how much extra you're gonna pay. They are pretty straight forward. Unfortunately I picked one of the most expensive times to get married as my daughter is in the Navy and had to work around her deployment schedule, but it is still cheaper than other venues.

          We picked July, only bc my job closes for a wk end of July and a wk in Feb. Didn't want 2 do Feb so July it is! Plus I like the idea of it being a summer vacation for anyone that wants 2 join us.

            We chose April, after spring break and before schoool lets out.  Also before hurricane season but after the risk of a cold front here in Florida.  We also picked the week that it is cheapest to book in that time frame four our guests.

              We chose to do wedding in mid-late June because my fiancĀ©, his mother, and brother-in-law all work for schools. Plus there are school age kids (nieces & nephew) that we want there. So we had to work around school schedules, so it had to be summer. Unfortunately, thats one of most expensive times to go. June should be okay, but any later gets closer to storm season. We shouldn't have hurricanes to deal with, but we have chance of rain & monsoon storms in June. One of our stops averages about 80% chance of rain on any given day at this time of year. But, most of those types of storms typically come and go quick (maybe an hour or two) and usually early morning or night, so I'm not too concerned. I plan to probably include umbrellas or ponchos in my OOT bags for guests just in case though.
