That's why anyone would need to weigh the difference of being in the front of the ship and having a cabin with some light. However; I was on a smaller ship from Bayonne to Bermuda and didn't find the waters choppy. I'm not sure what they're like from Charleston.
It would also depend on the likely weather conditions at that time of year.
Absolutely, yet even that can change within a period of days. As an example, we skirted a Category 1 hurricane on an August 2005 cruise from Boston to Bermuda, yet the ocean was smooth as glass on the return trip.
I'm glad we hadn't finalized our summer 2011 cruise plans yet. Thanks to this topic, we're also looking into Bermuda (again).
Thanks Sandy! That is what I was wondering as I have heard a few stories. I can't remember as well as I used to, but didn't someone at one time have Bermuda runs out of Wilmington, NC? It's been a long while, but seems like that is where I got the impression it could be bumpy.
Macmom111, we were supposed to have sailed this past April on the Island Princess to the Panama Canal. I was thinking about next October or November, but Bermuda is a place that I'd love to revisit. Princess doesn't have a set run for Bermuda, but they do stop there a couple of times a year. Since Charleston is closer than Ft. Lauderdale, Charleston to Bermuda looks like a good choice.
