A Boston to Bermuda cruise is a wonderful way to sample an island vacation without having to spend a lot of time at sea. Less than 700 nautical miles separate the largest city in Massachusetts from the island nestled in the Atlantic Ocean. Boston offers all of the perks of a cruise vacation—a state-of-the-art terminal, a full schedule of cruises, and plenty of hotels nearby. But Boston isn’t as crowded as some of the other ports. For many people, it doesn’t take as long to get to Boston either, which gives them more time to enjoy the cruise and soak up the sun.
Boston’s cruise port is close to everything; it’s just 10 minutes from Logan Airport and thee miles from the great shopping of Back Bay. The Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, the beginning point for Boston to Bermuda cruises, is also within minutes of the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, two of Boston’s top attractions. Thanks to wintertime conditions, Boston is a season port; a typical season begins in April and continues well in to November. Some of the cruises head north towards the Canadian Maritimes while others head south en route to the warm and pink-sand beaches found in Bermuda in season.
After some time to enjoy the time aboard the ship, you’ll arrive in Bermuda. Norwegian and other cruise lines dock at King’s Wharf Bermuda, located on the western tip of the island. Once you step off the ship, you’ll have time to enjoy the Royal Naval Dockyard, home to shopping, artisan demonstrations and the island’s official museum. From there, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for shore excursions. Bermuda’s golf courses draw the attention of cruise ship passengers, as do the beaches, glass-bottom boats and catamarans. After a few days on shore, it will be time to return to port to enjoy the last leg of your Boston to Bermuda cruise—the trip back to Beantown.
