I think NCL is the only line that goes to Bermuda from both Boston & NY on a weekly basis. The others seem to go more sporadically, with Royal Caribbean being the next most frequent.
I've never...

I've never made a reservation and never had a problem getting seated promptly (we always request a table for 2).

Yes, I would and have - either the tail end of one, or I've come down with one whilst on board. I wouldn't cancel for simply a cold. Fresh air and sunshine goes a long way to make you feel better....

As many people have been married to Kim Kardasian as have contracted Ebola in the U.S.

We use suitcases that are quite large (not the biggest they make, but large) and I don't think I've ever reached even 35 lbs per bag! Are you packing bricks? Canned goods? 50 lbs or more? Holy Moly!...
