Although a popular cruise destination, there are comparatively few Costco cruises to Bermuda. Costco’s Bermuda cruise offerings are also not particularly diverse – the vast majority last about a week, leave from a port in a northern East Coast city, and follow similar itineraries. A cruise to Bermuda is therefore a perfect week-long vacation for a resident of an Eastern city looking to enjoy tropical weather and some time on the beach. Below we outline what Costco cruises to Bermuda are available, as well as explain how to book a Bermudan cruise via Costco Travel.
While there is an occasional cruise from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Costco cruises to Bermuda almost always sail from northern ports on the East Coast. Since these northern ports generally don’t handle cruise traffic during the winter, you can only cruise to Bermuda from approximately April to October. During these months, there are on average a dozen or so cruises per month, although this increases in the summer and decreases substantially during the shoulder months of April and October. These cruises are split fairly evenly between Baltimore, Bayonne, Boston, and New York City, although Baltimore has the fewest.
Bermuda is the target of cruises from this part of the East Coast, and not other parts of the East Coast, primarily because of its location. Bermuda is a little closer to these East Coast cities than the Caribbean, and the Caribbean is much closer to the ports in Florida. Thus, it doesn’t make much sense for there to be cruises from Florida to Bermuda when the Caribbean is so close, and since the Caribbean is not so close to, say, New York, Bermuda is an obvious destination. There are of course plenty of cruises from cities like New York to the Caribbean – the Caribbean is one of the top cruise destinations in the world, after all – so we mention Bermuda’s location primarily to explain why the Florida ports, the biggest cruise ports in the U.S., don’t sail there.
