We are planning a trip to Bermuda in August. Cost is an issue because we are tying this trip in with a short visit to New York (two or three nights) from the UK.
Originally we planned to do the Norwegian Cruiselines cruise as the hotel prices are pretty hefty. However, we have found that some of the guest house prices are much better.
Has anyone done both - eg. stayed in a guest house or apartments and also done the cruise? Which would you recommend?
We are two adults - late thirties and we'll be travelling without our kids for a change. So, I suppose one of the reasons we're unsure about the cruise is kids - we love them, but we're worried there'll be heaps of them on the ship, which is something we hope to avoid.
Dining experience - we're getting the impression that a big part of a Bermuda vacation would be the dining experience. Will we be missing out on it if we cruise instead?
Costs - has anyone done both and compared the costs? We know food etc is included on the cruise. But drinks, spa treatments, tips etc aren't. Would we really save that much by cruising by the time we've paid for all the extras?
