Default Boston to Bermuda?

Hello..I am thinking about booking a trip on NCL Dawn from Boston to Bermuda. It will be a cheap vacation since no air fare and no hotel costs for me. I am concerned about only visiting one port: I think St. George's. I would like any input! Thanks

I don't think the Dawn is doing Boston to Bermuda cruises. This year it's the Dream and next year it's the Spirit.
We have done this cruise many times and staying at St. George is fine. You can take buses,ferries and cabs to anywhere on the island.

I'm wanting to do the exact same cruise...on the Dream.. or next year on the Spirit.. We're thinking of October 2009 as our best time to go. I too, would like information about the port St George?

Are you sure its the Spirit next year? I called NCL on Wednesday to enquire, and they play stupid.. like they have no idea? Why would they do that? How are you certain its the Spirit next year? I like the decor and furnishings of the Spirit a lot better than the Dream.. just my opinion.. but would like confirmation if its the Spirit for 2009 for sure?

A press realease by NCL on Nov. 7, 2007 announced a 10 year agreement with Bermuda to continue cruises to the Island from Boston,New York etc.
Included in the realease was the Spirit From Boston Sailing on Fridays starting in 2009. I believe it will dock at the Dockyards instead of St. George because it is to big to dock there.
They may not be doing bookings yet or the person you spoke to just has no clue what's going on.

Nothing is for sure. But next time they play stupid point them to their own press release from Nov.

http://www.ncl.com/nclweb/pressroom/...Code=PR_110707
In 2009, Norwegian Spirit, with a double occupancy capacity of 2,000 guests, will sail from Boston to Bermuda, departing on Fridays, calling in Bermuda from Sunday through Wednesday. Norwegian Dawn, with a guest capacity of more than 2,200, will sail from New York on Sundays, calling in Bermuda from Wednesday through Friday. Also in 2009, Norwegian Majesty (the ship which has served NCL's Boston-Bermuda business for 15 years) will sail to St. George's, Bermuda from Charleston, Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Dock at the dockyards? Would this mean a tender boat to shore? I'm really looking forward to the Spirit doing 2009.. thank you for the information..

Docked means no tender, anchored means tenders. 8)

Some ships may dock and some may anchor. I am pretty sure that Spirit will be docking.
I read somewhere that they set the ships schedule to avoid tendering the passengers.

If the Spirit is coming to Boston year after next - does anyone know if NCL will be putting another ship to sail from New Orleans?
