Cruising & Sailing Information

Bermuda Cruise Expert Guide

At just twenty-one square miles in size, the island of Bermuda in the Western Atlantic is one of the smaller destinations in the world to visit on a cruise ship. Only a day and a half sailing from the U.S. East Coast, a Bermuda cruise will introduce you to a tropical gem of an island that is a world away from The Bahamas and other Caribbean island communities. If you want to experience the quintessential English lifestyle set to a calypso beat, Bermuda is the place to go!

A British colony since 1684, the island of Bermuda has long been a favorite for U.S. and Canadian tourists. Up to 220,000 visitors each year arrive aboard Bermuda cruise vessels, which dock at one of the island's two ports - Hamilton and Kings Wharf. Bermuda does also have an airport to the northeast of the island, ushering in around another 380,000 visitors annually. The Bermuda government places strict limits on the number of visitors entering this tiny land area each year. Booking your Bermuda cruise well in advance of your desired sail date is therefore highly recommended.

Bermuda cruises depart from a number of ports along the eastern seaboard. Cruise lines operating out of Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore, Boston and Norfolk offer 5 - 7 day Bermuda cruises on a regular basis. As there is little in the way of land between the East Coast and Bermuda, Bermuda cruises tend only to stop at one port on the island. Cruise passengers are then free to explore Bermuda by foot, scooter, bicycle or boat. Bermuda cruise operators will also have a raft of shore excursions available for passengers to enjoy, the cruise ship acting as a floating hotel for the duration of their stay on the island.

Bermuda cruise shore excursions

A Bermuda cruise is a great opportunity to indulge in some high-class living. Whether your passion is golf, lazing on a beach (yes, it is true, the sand on some of Bermuda's beaches is pink), or just taking it easy in tropical surroundings, you'll be in for a treat on the island of Bermuda. For the more adventurous a complete spectrum of water sports can be enjoyed in the warm waters that lap the island's shoreline. You may even get a chance to take in a cricket match or two while sipping a cup of English Afternoon tea - an altogether more delightful way to experience 'England' without the drab skies and endless rain of the real thing.
