Bermuda cruises are fast becoming one of the most popular types of cruises on the market today. In fact, the summer of 2007 saw the highest number of cruise ships sailing to Bermuda ever.
Bermuda attracts more than half a million visitors each year from all walks of life. It’s 120 islands offer something for everyone from couples to singles to families of friends alike. Bermuda’s largest (and most festive) islands include: Bermuda (Main Island), Boaz, Ireland North, Ireland South, Somerset, St. David’s and St. George’s, and Watford.
Bermudas islands are all connected by bridges and causeways, so no matter where you find yourself, you can always hop over to the next island, and the next in a relatively short period of time. Shore excursions feature opportunities to go shopping, sailing, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sunning, and sipping cocktails on the beach at sunset. Bermuda is also golfers paradise. It is estimated that Bermuda has more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else on the planet.
Not all cruise lines sail to the Bermuda, but quite a few do and most depart from the Eastern Seaboard (Baltimore, Ft. Lauderdale, New York, Norfolk, VA, and Philadelphia). Some of the most popular cruise lines for Bermuda cruises include: Crystal Cruises, Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, and Norwegian Cruise lines.
Passengers can choose itineraries lasting from six days to fifteen days or more at sea. Just a few popular Bermuda cruises include:
-Bermuda-only cruise: features overnight stays in Hamilton, St. Georges or King’s Wharf
-Extended Bermuda cruise: guests spend one day in Hamilton, King’s Wharf, or St. George’s with several Eastern Caribbean ports of call
-Repositioning cruise: combines Bermuda with the Caribbean or Europe
