Going out to sea for a few weeks from Florida... what area are you exactly intending to 'cruise'? Seems that a 'few weeks' won't get you very far (and back) and presumably Cuba is not part of that plan...
Very different Island hopping in the Antilles, for example, vs Florida to the BVIs and back...
