Between 2009 and 2018, the Norwegian Spirit and Norwegian Dawn will sail from Boston and New York, respectively. Norwegian will remain the only line to cruise from Boston to Bermuda.
East Coasters from other cities can also have their pick of homeport sailings. In 2009, the Norwegian Majesty—which has been sailing out of Boston—will sail Bermuda cruises from Charleston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.

This option can save both vacation time and money with shorter and cheaper commutes than departing from Florida, Puerto Rico, or Texas. The question is, how many times can East Coasters sail to Bermuda before longing for a new itinerary?
