I'm from the city and still live in the city! Thats one of the perks I liked about that ship leaving from NY since I don't have to buy a plane ticket and im literally 10 mins away from the port by taxi. Yea I've thought about maybe cruising during the school year with the school holidays but idk yet :P still pondering that idea.*highly unlikely* lol I feel like i'd rather cruise next time in mid August instead of July.
I would HIGHLY recommend the Breakaway (or whichever ship takes its place in 2018) to Bermuda during the summer. It's a fantastic island and the entire trip is far more laid back with the single port of call over 3 days. My mom's a teacher, and we're actually doing the Boston>Bermuda itinerary on Dawn in a few weeks before she has to go back to work, but I've also done NYC>Bermuda solo and it's a great trip!
