For rock-bottom internet prices, check Priceline - their cruise specials are tough to beat.  They almost always throw in something extra to make a good deal great, such as free hotel nights and free spending vouchers.  

Even though they're best known for last-minute cruise deals, Priceline actually offers extremely competitive rates at most times.  Plus, they offer a 110% best cruise price guarantee.

Cruise prices peak during summer months, when schools are on vacation and family cruises are popular, and then drop again in mid-August and September. 

So to find the cheapest Bermuda cruises from Boston, check dates for the beginning and end of the cruise season when most kids are in school.

You can also compare available specials on Travelocity's Cruise Deals page.

If you look at the per-day charge, you'll see why cruises are such a great bargain.  Cruise rates start at under $500 - that's well under $100 per day - much, much cheaper than the cheapest Boston hotel, plus your meals and entertainment are included!

Shore Excursions and Activities in Bermuda

Bermuda's sensational pink-sand beaches, crystal-clear turqoise water, coral reefs and shipwrecks, world-class shopping, and unspoiled natural beauty mean you'll find plenty to do. 

Norwegian Dawn docks in King's Wharf on Bermuda's western tip, in the attractive Royal Navy Dockyard cruise port.  Stroll around Clocktower Mall and explore the many shops loaded with fine British goods as well as inexpensive souvenirs.  Pop into the Bermuda Maritime Museum to get a great overview of the island's historic past.

Several excellent shore excursions give you an easy way to experience Bermuda's beauty.  They provide transportation from your ship at King's Wharf, equipment, and a guarantee that you'll get back in time to your ship - so you can focus on just having fun. 

You'll usually save money by making online reservations before you go, rather than signing on with the cruise company.  Check them out and compare prices:

You'll find excellent shopping and restaurants along Front Street in Hamilton, Bermuda's charming capital.  Don't miss the boutiques with unique home goods and clothing from England, Scotland, and Ireland. 

The easiest and cheapest way to get here is by public bus or ferry.  Go to the Dockyard Terminal near the pier and buy a multi-day transportation pass good for unlimited bus and ferry rides throughout Bermuda, and hop on a ferry to Hamilton. 

Taxis are also plentiful and convenient, although pricier than Bermuda's public transportation.

Coral reefs surround Bermuda, and produce its famed pink-sand beaches.  Some of the best for you to enjoy include:

  • Horseshoe Bay - great for families who appreciate the lifeguards on duty all summer.  You'll find changing facilities and water sports equipment rental here as well
  • Elbow Beach - almost a mile of pale pink sand and safe swimming thanks to protective offshore coral reefs
  • Church Bay - gorgeous deep pink sand.  The sheltered location harbors abundant marine life.  You can rent snorkel gear on site


Best Time to Cruise to Bermuda from Boston

Although Bermuda is only 600 miles off the North Carolina coast, it enjoys a semi-tropical climate. 

By the time the first cruise ship arrives from Boston in late spring, air and water temperatures will reach the mid-70s, so you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling.  During the evenings, you'll enjoy the cool breeze that almost always blows at night.

During the summer, the outdoor temperature seldom goes above 85°, although the water temperature can be a degree or two higher.  Temperatures begin to drop in late October and November, right after cruises from Boston have ended. 

Hurricane season officially lasts from June through November, although Bermuda is much less likely to be hit than the Caribbean - or for that matter, Florida.  If you're concerned about trip disruptions related to hurricanes, you can buy reasonably priced insurance to protect you against this risk. 

If you want to do everything possible to avoid a hurricane, select one of the earlier Bermuda cruises from Boston with April, May, or even early June departures. 


Packing tips for your Bermuda cruise from Boston

Remember to pack your sunglasses, sun block, and beachwear!

If you want to try the cruise ship's specialty restaurants, consider bringing a dressier outfit (collared shirt for men, nicer dress or pants for women).  Otherwise, casual clothes suit the ship's relaxed ambiance.

Bermuda has a wide range of restaurants, from casual cafes to gourmet dining.  A lightweight sweater or shawl can be useful in air conditioned restaurants.

Casual clothes are fine for exploring Bermuda's tourist attractions.
