We typically cruise in February to escape the horrid Michigan winters, but suddenly yesterday, my husband told me he'd been also eyeing a September Bermuda cruise on the NCL Dawn out of New York. We love that port because we can drive to it! Any thoughts on the Dawn or Bermuda at that time of year?

September is a lovely time to go. The air and water temperatures are still very comfortable (keeping in mind that we come from similar climates), and the crowds are fewer. It is also a fabulous time to visit NYC...I've done so for business almost every year around that time.
I would go in a heartbeat if my husband's work schedule permitted.
I wasn't trying to "dis" Michigan. I have some very dear friends that live there. It's just that, well, I much prefer the pink and white sands of Bermuda to the pavement of Michigan. Just kidding, y'all, don't shoot me
