How's the weather at the end of May?

We will be cruising to St. Thomas on May 21st and we were curious how the weather is around that time. Afternoon tropical showers or just plain rain rain rain?

We will also be hitting the islands of Barbados, St Lucia, St Kitts, St Maarten... Any input is greatly appreciated.

If you do find anyone who can predict the weather on a particular day 16 days in advance - ask them for some lottery numbers too.

Funny but not helpful. Just hoping for sunshine while we are down there...

Constant rain in blinding sheets accompanied by crashing thunder and lightning bolts; major flooding and impassable roads due to downed trees and rock falls; loss of electrical power and the constant hum of big generators echoing throughout the Caribbean; and the probability of anchoring out at every port because of damage to all the docking facilities while the ship's tenders won't be available to take you to shore because of huge sea swells.

The GOOD NEWS is that none of this will happen if you pack plenty of sunscreen and don't read or watch any weather forecasts. It's one of those karma things.

Enjoy a wonderful cruise!
