I've been on 4 carnival cruises this will be our first trip to bermuda.
Haven,t seen any reveiws on this trip to bermuda.
Wondering about places to see and places to avoid.
has anyone done any excursions thru Carnival and how were they.
My wife wants to do the helmet diving but heard it was expencive($110.00 THRU NCL)
I also heard that when in port entertainment stops ie. music on lido deck no casinos.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm going on the Pride next Wednesday to Bermuda and I've never been to Bermuda before but I have cruised Carnival before. There are several reviews posted on this trip and I've been reading them all. There is no laundry service, casino or shops open while in dock, but I understand they have talent shows at night and a deck party. Don't try to go shopping on Sunday, I understand that everything is closed. A good day to go to the beach. We're booking tours thru Carnival and I have information they sent us but they're without prices because they can always change.......When are you going on your cruise to Bermuda?
We are leaving Aug 27th the last one to bermuda for the Pride.
This will be our 5th with Carnival we keep on saying going to try a new cruise line but somehow we just keep coming back.Thank you for the info.
Bermuda, and what to do. I feel like I post this information over and over again. here goes. In St. Georges, there is excellent shopping and some historical sights in this origonal colonial capital. There is a nice glass bottom boat tour of a coral reef. Beaches include Tobacco Bay, which has full facilities, rentals and snorkelling. St Catherines (next to Fort St Catherines, Aslo has facilities and rentals. . Walk to the other sude of the fort to Achiles Bay for a more private experience and also decent snorkelling along the rocks under the fort. Of course , Ft. St Catherines. Many small artist shops (great water color scenes etc). At noon , several days during the week the town crier does a dunking in the main town square.
Hamilton. Shopping, carraige rides, buses and ferries to other parts of the island. Botanical Gardens, Aquarium , government buildings, and the Cathedral. In between St Georges and Hamilton there are the Caves and the Glass Factory.
Dockyard. Shops and mueseums, dolphin encounter and a designated snorkel park.
In between dockyard and Hamilton, Best beaches such as world famous Horseshoe Bay, and Warwick Long Bay amoung others. Lighthouse, drawbridge , walking trails.
For best snorkelling tour hook up wtyh Jessie James tours in Hamilton. Their 4 hour, 3 stop tour is probably the best overall snorkel tour I've ever taken. They stop at a small island, the sight of two side by side wrecks and an offshore coral reef.
Wednesday nights , if you are there , there is a street celebration in Hamilton.
Entertainment. The cruise ships agree to minimize professional onboard entertainment when in port. This encourages you to get out to the many great pubs for a locally brewed beer or the official drink of Bermuda , a Dark and Stormy. I suggest you eat on board ship and hit the pubs for drinks before or after (or both). Food ashore can get a bit pricey.
Golf anyone? I believethere are 13 or 14 golf courses in Bermuda. Play can usually be arranged through a ships' excursion.
Have fun, this is one of the great Islands in the world.
