THE DEAL: American Discount Cruises and Travel is offering a seven-night Bermuda cruise onboard Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas, sailing roundtrip from Cape Liberty on October 27, 2013. Prices start from $349, per person, for an inside cabin. Bonus amenities such as prepaid gratuities or onboard credit are available at booking.
WHAT WE LOVE: With the only port of call being Kings Wharf, you have more time to spend relaxing onboard a fantastically outfitted ship and getting to know one port, rather than scurrying from place to place, on this cruise. With almost three full days in Bermuda, you and the family have a chance to unwind. For sea days, Explorer of the Seas is optimized with entertainment and activities for cruisers of all ages. From $50 per person, per night, this rate just falls into our cheapest cruises category.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: If you’re traveling with children, the kids must to be willing to spend their Halloween away from home, although they will probably be having such a blast that the lack of fun-size candies in a plastic bucket won’t faze them too much. What might faze you is the possibility of weather-related difficulties; Bermuda in the fall is an area potentially threatened by hurricane season, which runs until mid-November.
