What is best Caribbean cruise for the winter?

Can anyone provide recommendations on Caribbean cruises leaving in the next three months? Also anything specific about the cruise that earned your recommendation?

Depends on what activities you enjoy. I like www.vacationstogo.com 90 day sticker for a quick overview of what is available. The list is far from complete, but after you decide which ports you are interested in, you can plug in your specific dates, ports, etc. to get more.
Which ports appeal to you, beaches, history tours, diving, best food, zip lining, etc? Choose a few islands that appeal to you most, then look to see what cruises go there.
Then think about:
What kind of ship you want to be on, what size, how many stars, etc? How important is the ship to you? Do you want good activities on the ship?
How many days? For me, 7 is a good start.
What departure port works best for you?
Do you want sea days or more days in ports?
The further south you go for your departure port, the more likely the first days will be warm. Example - San Juan is a guarantee of warm departure weather, Ft Lauderdale not always.
Plan on arriving the day before the cruise begins, much less stressful and you are rested and ready to begin the cruise.

Hugely broad question. Narrow it down as Sass has suggested. What do you want in terms of ship amenities, ports, etc. Have U cruised before?
