Need a last minute getaway this summer?

Posted in Bermuda, Cruises, Uncategorized with tags , , on June 21, 2011 by cheriforzani

I can highly recommend a cruise to the pink sands and aqua waters of pristine Bermuda, whose beaches are in my humble opinion, the finest in the world.

I just returned from a 1 week cruise to Bermuda from NYC on Holland America’s Veendam and it was wonderful.  I cruised with 3 generations of my family on a girls trip and all of us were ready to stay onboard to do it all over again.  The exclusive to Holland America Lanai cabins are wonderful for groups traveling together.

Also, for those of you under the misconception that Holland America caters to an older demographic, not so with this cruise.  Bermuda cruises cater to lots of families and even though we cruised before school was out, there were plenty of children and teens onboard, and the childrens programs were very good. We also saw a lot of groups and honeymooners onboard. For teens there is a teens only area at the top of the ship that offers hammocks, a lagoon/waterfall to cool off and lots of video games but most importantly, a place to meet and hang out with new friends.


I think one of the nicest aspects of this cruise is that it spends 3 full and one half day in Bermuda, one day in St. George and the rest docked in Hamilton making exploring the island by bus and ferry easy and inexpensive.  I also liked the smaller size of the ship, the great library and the fact that there were no announcements save for embarkation and disembarkation day and then only essential information.

.

A not to be missed event is Hamilton Harbor nights on Wednesday evenings, a free street festival on Front. St. that featured what just might be the best band I’ve heard in a decade (“Prestige”),  with dancing in the streets.

There are some fantastic deals on sailings in August, so if you haven’t booked your summer vacation yet, consider a cruise to Bermuda.

The Celebrity Summit also does a 7 night sailing from Bayonne and the NCL Gem cruises from NYC, all departing on Sundays.
