Weather on a Caribbean Cruise

Boarding in Miami on Feb 25 for a 7 day cruise. Going to Cozumel, Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman, returning to Miami. Question: If all goes well with sunny weather, what can we expect for heat out on the water? Will it be breezy on the boat? Im just wondering how many pairs of long pants to pack....Im hoping one pair, for dinner, and that's it...

The water temp looks to be into or heading into the 80's, but whats the air temp like once you get out into open water?

My expereince is that it tends to be breezy on the open waters. Fine when the sun is out. How about capri pants as a compromise, for evenings on the deck, & a light jacket or sweater? I always tend to be on the cold side, tho.

I think during the day it should be quite warm. That far south is going to be much warmer than even Miami. Evenings may get a little cool and breezy especially if there are any rain showers or extra cloudiness. I think the previous post about the capri's is a good idea. I even use those during the summer. Pants should be light weight. I don't think you will need anything heavy. I get cold easily so I always take a light sweater or long sleeved shirt I can wear as sometimes the dining area can be cold too. Especially if you have a sunburn.
