Best time of year for Disney cruise to Castaway Cay?

Were hoping to book a Disney cruise for 2021, 5-7 nights, calling at Castaway Cay (any route). Were tied to school holidays as I work in a school and both children are at school, but open to travelling in any holiday (we can all get an extra day off at the start / end of a holiday if needed.)

Which holiday(s) would be best for a cruise to Castaway Cay? Im mainly thinking best for weather, but any other reasons for choosing a particular time of year would also be handy to know.

I'd opt for Easter, but be careful of Spring Break as everywhere will be chocker and the cost of cruises higher.

Either that, or October half term which, although in hurricane season, has always served us well.

Thank youll, well look at the best option between Easter and October then. I assume October is a safer bet than August when it comes to hurricane season?

Im guessing February would be too cold for a cruise, even in the Bahamas? And is May half term a bad choice?

Weve been twice in August with no issues, works best for us as I wont go at Easter as too busy and we only have a week off in October (I work in a school too)

We just done April on the Disney Dream. Weather was fabulous! It was such a nice break from the crowds of the parks during spring break and Easter

Ok, so it sounds like February, Easter, August and October are all winners for different people and different reasons. Maybe there isnt really a bad choice then? (Except perhaps for May half term, which hasnt had any recommendations yet.)

Your best bet is to play around on the website and look at the price hikes at different times. Avoid US holidays and it's better of course.
There is never a bad time to go on holiday!
