Best Month For The Bahamas

We're also anxiously awaiting the 2014 release dates and we're trying to figure out the best month for the Bahamas.

Ideally we'll do 3 days in Orlando. Not sure if it'll be at WDW or US/IOA, and then a 3 or 4 night on Dream. We're trying to pick a month in the value/low season, but that will also offer warm temps for swimming as we want to do Atlantis.

My first thought is May, but I'm open to your thoughts.

Thanks

We have gone twice in the first week of May, once with a WDW trip also and once just the cruise. I would definitely do it again, it was beautiful. Occasional sprinkles one or two days, lots of sun, not too humid, warm water. Of course, I haven't been any other time so I don't have anything to compare to.

I've been told Dec-Feb aren't good times because the water is colder.

Cruise

We are going in a few weeks, October prices were a little lower with school being in session and it's a Halloween cruise which makes it more fun. Next cruise I would like to book in late November around Thanksgiving and see the Christmas decorations. Nassau weather from what i understand is nice year around , Dec - Feb and even in March the water is still too cold for me to swim =)

Any time would be fine with me. It means I'm not at home at work.

Did one in May, Mothers Day, and two in Sept/October. Temps were just right and so was the price.
Did 3 in August and one in July and both cost and temperature were too high.
