Default Bermuda

I have a question that I haven't seen any postings for so far. When you cruise to Bermuda and pull into the pier does the rest of the ship shut down like when you pull into any other port? I mean like the shows, casino, and such. I'd love to go there but if the ship basically shuts down their normal activities it seems to me you may as well fly. I'd love to cruise there so if anyone has an answer for me I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks,
Barbara

Barb,
Yes, the ship does close down, the casino, shops but there are shows in the evening, not the grand ones that they put on while at sea, but good shows, some with local talent. Also there are theme nights, Quest, Country Western, etc., that they hold during port time. You really shouldn't let the shut down of the ship deter you from this cruise, Bermuda is expensive, (food & drink, as well as shopping), no bartering here. But very worthwhile. Also they have Dolphin Quest, which is housed over at the far side of the island, past Southampton. Here you can for a cost of $95 a person, swim with the dolphins for 30 minutes. Check this out before hand because reservations are required. I was lucky last year when we cruised there that there was a cancellation and I was able to get in the water with these marvelous creatures. Also, if you see something you like, buy it, chances are the price will not be any cheaper elsewhere. Have a wonderful trip. J

You could fly to Bermuda but then you would miss all of the fun and activities that go on during the days you are cruising to and from Bermuda. Also as jan mentioned, while the casino and shops are closed, there is entertainment, the pools are open, and your meals are included. If you compare prices you will probably still be better off cruising.
