Beautiful tropical scenery meets British tradition and indulgent relaxation in a secluded island escape packed with entertainment for cruise visitors.
Where some cruise destinations feel like constant parties entirely geared to tourists, the three ports along a cruise to Bermuda offer something altogether different. Enjoy Bermuda’s slower pace of life. Everyone, from families to couples to retirees, can find fun and amusement in this peaceful environment. Everything here feels safe, clean and quiet, which might be exactly what you want from a Bermuda cruise.
Unlike Caribbean cruises that hop from between island nations, Bermuda cruises are less hectic because the single island country is isolated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Appreciate its distant location, giving a Bermuda cruise vacation a blissful feeling of total escape.
Bermuda has three cruise ports of different sizes. King’s Wharf is the biggest, while Hamilton and St. George’s are more traditional stops. Sizes of Bermuda cruise liners also vary. Major lines run excursions on their mega-liners, while luxury operators offer more personal trips.
Shore excursions from the three ports promise enjoyment for visitors of all ages. Spend a day relaxing on the pink sandy beaches. See colorful fish as you snorkel in clear waters or take a beginner’s scuba diving course to meet Bermuda’s underwater denizens. Tee off in scenically located golf courses. Head underground into the Crystal Caves near Hamilton or bicycle to historic Fort Scaur and the Mott Family Estate, built in the 1600s. Try night fishing on the barrier reef or enjoy Hamilton’s nightlife during Wednesday evening street festivals.
The most common type of Bermuda cruise itinerary is a single-country sailing, which could leave from Boston, Cape Liberty or New York and will usually spend 3 days of a 7-night cruise in Bermuda’s ports. Some trips will call in Bermuda on a transatlantic or repositioning voyage between Europe and America’s eastern coast.
More Bermuda cruise options have opened up in the past few years, making a once expensive escape a little more affordable. Search for Bermuda cruise deals outside of the peak season between June and August. Take ships to the isolated island any time between April and early November.
