How To Pick The Perfect Bermuda Cruise

If you are planning a cruise to Bermuda, there are certain important things which you must keep in mind. If you have not been to Bermuda before, bear in mind that it is not a big island. In fact, it doesn't take more than 24 hours to walk across the whole island.

Bermuda is around 120 miles north of the Caribbean Sea. It has a mild climate even during the winter months. Cruises to Bermuda are generally available between April and late October. There are certain cruises which keep on making trips until the end of December. However, they are relatively rare.

Your cruise ship could land in any one of the three ports at Bermuda, though it is most likely that you would stop in the port of Hamilton, as it has two shipping berths. It may happen that you visit more than one port on your Bermuda cruise trip.

The other port is known as St. George port. It is a historical port and attracts large numbers of tourists. Then there is the third port, at King's Wharf. This port has museums, galleries, and popular restaurants, which makes it a famous cultural hub. Bermuda cruises often have a large number of tourists who often make return visits to Bermuda. This indicates the island's popularity.

However, as it is a small island, restrictions are in place concerning the maximum number of cruise liners that can land here. Check out the limit before you book a Bermuda cruise. The bookings can be done online or over the telephone. There are many cruise liners to choose from. Your choice of a cruise liner depends on your budget and the kind of vacation you are looking to take. There are luxury liners for those who want to splurge and cheaper liners for those on a tighter budget.

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.

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.
