Bermuda Dept. of Tourism
Take time to refresh and recharge this fall with one of these carefree escapes. Below we offer vacation packages that are easy to budget and to book, as one upfront price covers many necessary components. At our three all-inclusive resort recommendations, rates include food, beverages and land and water sports (priced for October stays). We also suggest three seagoing trips on cruise ships that provide day-to-night activities, entertainment, meals and more. Airfare is additional.

British Style in Bermuda
From $449 per person for 7 nights
Sailing round trip from Boston on Oct. 25, the Norwegian Dawn will spend 54 hours at Bermuda's King's Wharf, allowing travelers time to explore this lovely Atlantic island and sample its nightlife.

Bahamas Break
From $212 per person for 4 nights
Royal Caribbean International's Majesty of the Seas spends fall on sojourns from Miami to Key West, FL; Nassau, Bahamas; and the line's private island, CocoCay. We priced the Oct. 7 voyage; September sailings start at $234.

West Coast Cruise
From $349 per person for 5 nights
On Sept. 29, Holland America Line sends its 1,266-passenger Statendam on a repositioning cruise from vibrant Vancouver to sunny San Diego. En route, savor three days at sea and a stop in San Francisco.

Beachside in the Dominican Republic
From $340 per person for 5 nights
Thatched palapas, meandering pools and a pristine beach set a languid tone at Occidental Grand Punta Cana in the DR. Guests have plenty of options among the 10 restaurants and eight bars, plus merengue lessons, snorkeling and more.

Costa Rica Relaxation
From $377 per person for 6 nights
Kick back in the cool shade of Allegro Papagayo on the Pacific coast. Spanish-style buildings are terraced into a forested hillside that slopes to the shore. Among the amenities: a private beach club, kayaking excursions and kids' facilities.

Jamaica Escape

A tempting stretch of sand awaits at Sunset Beach Resort, Spa and Waterpark near Montego Bay. Try the tennis courts, book a coffee-and-sugar body scrub at the spa or toast the sunset from the Sundowner Bar.
