Bermuda Cruises and Cruise Lines - Choosing A Bermuda Cruise

Cruise Norwegian Cruise Line to Bermuda from New York Of all the world’s cruise destinations, Bermuda remains one of the most unique, not only for its rich history and Caribbean-like ocean vistas, but also for its itinerary, which encompasses a healthy mix of sea days topped off with an extended, multi-night stay on the island.

The islands’ characteristic pastel-colored buildings and pink-hued beaches are among the treasures found by those on a Bermuda cruise vacation. True to British tradition, driving is on the left. A golfer’s paradise, Bermuda has more acreage per square mile dedicated to golf than any other country.

With eight islands connected by causeways and bridges (including the world’s smallest draw bridge), Bermuda beckons to passengers, who can opt for a variety of shore excursions. Bermuda shore excursions inlcude glass bottom boats, catamaran sailing cruises, the limestone crystal caves, golf trips and more.

There is also the convenient Bermuda Ferry Service between Hamilton, St. George's and the Royal Naval Dockyard. Note that what cruise lines call "King's Wharf", locals will refer to as the Royal Naval Dockyard.

The town of St. George's is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the official justification for inscription being: "The Historic Town of St George's with its related fortifications is an outstanding example of a continuously occupied, fortified, colonial town dating from the early 17th century and the oldest English town in the New World."

When To Cruise?

Ports of Departure
During the summer months Bermuda cruises depart from New York, Boston, Baltimore and Bayonne (a.k.a Cape Liberty). The New York cruises leave fromn the cruise terminals along the Hudson River, which makes a hotel stay in New York City before or after the cruise very convenient.

How Many Days?
Bermuda cruises are 7 days, except for Royal Caribbean's 5 day cruises. Those Bermuda Cruises feature only ports in Bermuda, where the ships stay for 2 to 4 days, with the remainder being sea days. Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruises also have longer 9 day Caribbean cruises that include one day in Bermuda.
