the summer and not usually colder than 60° in the winter. Such mild
temperatures make this a location that can be visited year round.

Although the islands themselves might be able to withstand a hurricane,
most cruise ships will not sail through dangerous conditions at sea. It
is better to avoid the chance that your honeymoon might get cancelled.
