Cruises To Bermuda In 2013

Cruise To Bermuda 2013

If you are looking for the perfect island holiday, then take a cruise to Bermuda. Thousands of tourists arrive each year on a fleet of ocean going vessels. They will travel across the Atlantic, on their way to one of the most popular holiday locations on earth. It was named Destination of the Year 2011. The title was bestowed by Expedia Inc, who own the noted travel website Expedia.com. It was awarded to Bermuda for being a top vacation spot, and the adventure is set to continue in 2013.

The cruise ship season heralds the coming of a fabulous new cruise ship called, appropriately enough, the Norwegian Breakaway. It will be setting sail from New York City and can carry up to 4,000 passengers. The craft will be stopping at Bermuda for the first time in 2013, making 22 calls in total. This wonderful vessel, along with the various other cruise ships calling on the island, will be ferrying in excess of 300,000 tourists throughout the season.

There are said to be in the region of 128 cruise ships visits to the island within the next few months. This may be a decrease on 2012 visits, and we may be saying good bye to the Veendam, but it does not affect Bermuda’s standing as one of the hottest tourist destinations on the planet. Its reputation as a popular holiday spot will be maintained by the large number of passengers arriving on the vessels regularly docking at the island.

These include the aforementioned Norwegian Breakaway. It will arrive at Heritage Wharf, on the Royal Naval Dockyard, on Wednesday mornings at 7.30 am and stay till Friday afternoons at 5 pm.

Bermuda shall also be making the acquaintance of another new arrival. 2013 will mark the inaugural season of the cruise ship Grandeur of the Seas. This Vision class vessel has taken the place of the former Enchantment of the Seas. The huge, exciting new cruise ship will stop at Bermuda on 15 occasions. It can carry just as many passengers as its predecessor, holding approximately 3,225. It will make Kings Wharf its port of call, pulling in at 3 pm and staying for three hours, prior to its departure at 6 pm.

There are 5 regular or contract ships set to arrive on the island. They are the Explorer of the Seas, with 26 visits planned and 3341 projected passengers: The Summit, with 19 visits and 2132 passengers: Norwegian Dawn, with 22 visits and 2535 passengers; Grandeur of the Seas, with 15 visits and 2123 passengers: Norwegian Breakaway, with 22 visits and 4089 projected passengers.

The Summit arrives at King’s Wharf on Wednesday mornings and departs on Friday afternoons; Norwegian Dawn stops at Heritage Wharf on Sunday mornings and leaves on Tuesday afternoons; Norwegian Breakaway moors at Heritage Wharf on Wednesday mornings and sets sail on Friday afternoons; Grandeur of the Seas docks at King’s Wharf at 3 pm and leaves three hours later, at 6 pm; Explorer of the Seas also arrives and departs from King’s Wharf on the same day.

There will also be 18 occasional callers to Bermuda, most of which will visit the island only once. The vessels Azamara Quest, Prinsendam, Silver Spirit, Regatta and Riviera will be coming twice. The AIDAluna, however, will be making three trips to Bermuda.
