Bermuda is a self-governing British dependency that melds island living with
proper English traditions. Cruise to Bermuda and see sparkling blue water and
pink-sand beaches, and hibiscus and bougainvillea blooms in front of pretty
pastel cottages. If you cruise Bermuda you'll also find that afternoon tea is
a daily ritual, judges still wear powdered wigs and cricket is a much-loved sport.
Unlike Caribbean cruises, Bermuda cruises are tightly controlled in order to
keep the crowds to a minimum. Because of limits on the number of passengers that
may disembark in Bermuda, it is not unusual for Bermuda cruise lines to limit the
number of cabins with triple or quad occupancy on a particular sailing. This means
that families planning to cruise to Bermuda in the summer (when school is out)
should generally book at least 90 days in advance.
- The Bermuda cruise season lasts from late-April to October.
- Most cruises to Bermuda last seven nights, and ships typically spend three
nights at the island. Some ships will stay in one port, while others may
visit up to three Bermuda cruise ports.
- Most cruises to Bermuda depart from Boston or New York City.
- Bermuda is an extremely popular golf destination, boasting some of the most
beautiful greens in the world. Because ships stay in port for several days,
it is easy to schedule tee times when you cruise Bermuda.
- Many people mistakenly assume that Bermuda is in the Caribbean. In fact, it is
actually about 1,000 miles north of the Caribbean and roughly 570 miles east of
Cape Hatteras, NC.
