Bermuda Cruises from New York City
See the Big Apple first before departing for a relaxing island paradise! Multiple cruise lines heading toward Bermuda leave from New York, offering you a week-long vacation to a stunning island of pink sands, golf courses, and Caribbean architecture. Arrive early to sightsee before setting sail through the Atlantic.
Out of New York City’s two major cruise ports, one in Manhattan and a second in Brooklyn, two contemporary lines leave for Bermuda, offering seven-day trips:
• Norwegian Cruise Line – Offering round-trip cruises to Bermuda
• Carnival Cruise Line – Offering round-trip cruises to Bermuda
Cruises to Bermuda sail to the island and then spend multiple days in one or two ports. Your itinerary may include:
King’s Wharf: This port on the island’s west side began centuries ago as a British base between Halifax and the West Indies. The British continued to use it as a stronghold on this side of the Atlantic until World War II, and because of this, sights around King’s Warf are related to Bermuda’s naval history. While you’ll get to explore these and more Bermudan history at National Museum of Bermuda and Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, King’s Wharf is one of the island’s cultural centers. So, prepare to taste a Caribbean delicacy at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company and then see works from local artists at the Bermuda Arts Centre. And, as a beach is always nearby, you’ll have a chance to relax, scuba dive, or parasail by the ocean.
Hamilton: Larger vessels don’t usually stop in this smaller port, but shore excursions include it. No matter how you get to Hamilton, make sure to schedule some time to explore the local architecture, known for its pastel-colored buildings. Or, if you’d like to know more about the waters surrounding the island, come by the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.
St. George’s: A vacation to Bermuda is both a time to relax and a chance to explore history. At St. George’s, one of the island’s larger ports, you’ll be able to do both. In fact, as it’s the second British settlement in North America, the town’s designated as a World Heritage Site. When it comes time to unwind, make sure to find yourself by Tobacco or Achilles Bay – popular spots for swimming and snorkeling. And, for more natural wonders, Crystal Caves is another must-do stop here.
So, when you want to spend a few days in paradise, why drive several hours or take an airplane to the departure port? Start your next Bermuda cruise from New York City. Browse itineraries through Direct Line Cruises today before scheduling your trip.
