janfred....You have written the real truth of just why We love Our Balconies....It is the quintessential pleasure that experienced cruisers know only too well! We do, on occasion, still sail in certain "special" oceanview staterooms...but Our hearts always lead Us back to the Balcony......Still...Do Your Bermuda adventure....We truly believe You will have a wonderful time.....We wish We were on Your same schedule!!! For Us Bermuda is on Our early Fall 2014 schedule aboard the NCL Dawn It is a budget sailing in an Oceanview.(Yes, We do actively plan and budget our travels 2 years in advance)......but after that....Balconies the rest of Our Wave Season...from Europe late Fall till the middle of Spring 2015!! We can't wait!!!
