We are taking our 1st cruise to Bermuda on Explorer of the Seas on June 30 for 5 days leaving out of Cape Liberty cruise port in Bayonne New Jersey. We have cruised many times before, but never to Bermuda.
We will fly into Newark airport. Here's my question. The earliest flight I can get on our departure date will get us in Newark at noon on departure day. I feel that is cutting it too close in case there is any delay in the flight. So, we were going to fly down the night before and stay in a hotel. Does anyone know of a decent hotel we can stay at in Newark?
Also, is the sand really pink? We were going to take an excursion to Horseshoe Bay Beach (I think that's the correct name). Also going to go to Crystal Caves and take the evening Bermuda Triangle Cruise. I'm going with my 8 year old grandson! Anyone have any opinions on these excursions?
Thanks so much!
