With regard to Bermuda, it's too cool to swim in the ocean.

I would agree.  We sailed to Bermuda from NJ a few years ago on Liberty of the Seas. We had a freak windy, cold day.  They said it was one of the coldest days they ever had.  The second day was much better, near 80.  It is probably too cool to swim in October.

We always go in September or October. The latest we ever visited the island was Oct. 7-14 and we definitely went to Horseshoe Bay and air temp was probably 85 degrees.

In NJ, we do longer have seasons.  October could be 80 degrees and sunny, or we could be under frost advisory.  Its also prime Hurricane season so you never know.

We sailed from Jersey on the Explorer several years ago and the sea was pretty bad the first 2 days.  Lots of guests and crew were sick.  Fortunately it was a 14 day repo cruise, so we had lots of time to enjoy the cruise after being sick.

 

Explorer is a lot smaller than Anthem, and the weather can change any time, but just wanted you to know it is possible to have rough sea that time of year.

The past few October’s it’s been fairly warm here in October. Not necessarily swimming weather but also not jacket weather yet.

We cruised to Bermuda from NJ for 7 days mid-November last year.  We had 30's in NJ, 50 on second day, then an average of 75 in Bermuda.  Water was too cool for us , but the 72-78 in Bermuda was perfect.  We had typical seas crossing the ocean, a little rough but still ok outside with a jacket.  Of course, every year can be different.
