Wonder questions

Hello! I am going on the wonder this week, I've been doing some research about weather in Miami/ Cozumel/ castaway cay. It says the weather will be around 80* just wondering how accurate that is on the ship. I will be traveling with a toddler and wondering if I should pack mostly summer outfits or more spring/fall.

Also any other tips/ tricks that will make traveling easier would be greatly appreciated!!!

It will be a little cooler on deck, depending on winds and the ship's speed. We sailed on the Wonder 4 times and my wife always found the dining rooms to be a little cool. There were usually a fair amount of people dressed for cooler temps in the dining rooms. I was born and raised in Germany so I didn't notice.

We just got off with similar temps and I was always warm except in parrot cay restaurant. Also theaters were a bit cold.

Other then that I was shorts in t shirts even on deck. Maybe light sweat shirt at night on deck but still wore shorts.

As far as tips bring an extension chord and some drinks for the cabin while getting ready.

We have cruised November, December & January. Have always worn summer clothes onboard and found it to be quite hot in some ports. The only cruise we had cold temps at CC was January 2011 when that snow storm was hitting every state in the U.S. When that cold front hit the warm front in the Carribean it was a mess.

How warm or cool it feels may depend on what you are used to for home weather. Coming from northern New England, 80 degrees in January feels like summer to us even with a breeze on deck! If you live in a hotter climate where summer is 90-100 degrees, you might want a sweater. I'd suggest packing a sweater/sweatshirt and a pair on long pants, just in case, but otherwise for that weather we'd plan summer clothes.

Enjoy your cruise!
