Cruising to Bermuda can be a unique adventure unlike anything else you have experienced.  There are several different types of ships to make your voyage there as action packed or simply relaxing as you desire.  Ships range from those that offer activities like onboard golf, rock wall climbing and an assortment of classes offered onboard to small intimate ships that provide lots of space for simply relaxing by the pool or strolling through a hothouse garden.

Once you arrive in Bermuda you can then begin to experience the beauty of Bermuda’s  island paradise.  Many cruisers enjoy spending two days in Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda and spend their time experiencing  the pink sand beaches, historic forts and incredible shopping on this tropical hideaway. Then if you are on a longer cruise your next port of call may be Kings Wharf or St. George. After exhausting yourself shopping, beach combing, and sightseeing its back to your cruise ship for the short voyage home.  Can anyone find a better reason than that to make your next vacation a cruise to Bermuda?
