Here's our top recommendations for cruises to Alaska, Bermuda, Caribbean, Europe, Hawaii and Mexico.
Cruises to Bermuda It may not be the most diverse cruise destination, but Bermuda is a charming island with British culture and great shopping and golf courses. Another advantage is that you can find cruises to Bermuda departing from several East Coast cities all the way from Fort Lauderdale to Boston.
There are only two ports on the island, Hamilton and King's Wharf, and they are not very far from one another. Most seven-day cruises to Bermuda spend two days getting there, three days in port and a one day return cruise to home. You can find cruises to Bermuda as short as five days.
You don't need a balcony cabin with cruises to Bermuda. There is nothing to see but the Atlantic Ocean until you get there. You may enjoy having a balcony door for fresh air while you are docked, but if you forego the balcony you can find bargain inside cabins and just enjoy the ship.
Since the ship is the main attraction on cruises to Bermuda, we recommend the ship with the most going on -- Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas. This is a mega-ship of the Voyager-class, carrying 3114 passengers with 138,000-tons of displacement. Onboard activities and attractions include an ice rink with Ice Capades-style professional skater production shows as well as passenger ice skating. There is also in-line skating, miniature golf, virtual golf, rock wall climbing, basketball, a jogging track and more.
There are extensive facilities for kids of all ages. For entertainment there is the Royal Promenade with pubs, a coffee bars, a free 24-hour pizzeria and a Ben & Jerry's. There is a large casino, a production show theater for Vegas-style shows and plenty of pool space.
The 5-night cruises to Bermuda on Explorer leave from Bayonne, New Jersey and spend two days in King's Wharf. Prices start at $599 per person, September through November, although the season actually starts on May 9th with slightly higher prices then.
