Caribbean

Week in Bermuda for $806

Worry-Free Vacations is putting this normally budget-busting island within reach for folks from the Detroit area. You get Northwest Airlines flights, transfers, and seven nights at the Harmony Club, a beautifully landscaped hotel with a restaurant and lounge, a pool, tennis courts, a sauna, and a Jacuzzi. Mile-long Elbow Beach--protected by coral reefs and famous for its pale pink sand--is a 15-minute walk away, though most visitors zip around by scooter (rentals are available nearby starting at $50 per day). Owing to the still-strong British influence, Bermuda has a more formal atmosphere than the Caribbean islands. At the Harmony Club, guests dress for dinner: shorts, T-shirts, and sneakers are not allowed. When: Saturday departures: April 9 (from $806); April 16, 23, 30 ($1,058); May 7, 14 ($1,118); May 21, 28, June 4, 11, 18, 25 ($1,148). Other Gateways: None. Details: No extra nights.
