Hi Steve and Dee,
Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but just got back from a cruise on the Splendour. October is the end of the hurricane season, but it also starts to get a bit cooler in Bermuda by then. Having been to Bermuda numerous times, I would suggest the summer months offer the best in Bermuda weather. It is difficult to avoid the hurricane season in Bermuda, if you wish to enjoy the ocean and beaches. If you just want to experience Bermuda and don't care about spending time in the ocean May is quite lovely. The weather in Bermuda is similar to what you would experience in the Carolinas.
