NW Caribbean to Chesapeake

Please excuse my ignorance but the geography of the USA is still somewhat of a mystery to me as far as water routes are concerned! Be assured it is something I will be working on mastering.

I want to get from the NW Caribbean to the Chesapeake area and really have little idea of the choices available. I understand that the ICW would be a possible route. Have a 40 footer that draws 4' 6'', would that be a problem?

Intend leaving this area(NW Carib) in mid April, not adverse to longer passages.
I would be very grateful for any advice/route suggestions.Are there any costs associated with using the ICW? Can you sail parts of it?

Have a holding tank fitted!Have US visas.

Many, many thanks in advance.
