Ports of Call
Hamilton, Bermuda - The City of Hamilton, a port city, is the capital and administrative, commercial, entertainment and shopping center of Bermuda. It is named after Henry Hamilton. He was British Lieutenant Governor and then full Governor here from 1788 to 1794 and got this municipality started.

It hosts the Bermuda Government, with its many buildings, army of civil servants, large number of elected and appointed politicians, cruise and cargo ships. It is one of the two local container ports and the hub of Bermuda's international business administration.
New York, New York - What can be said about America's greatest city? Whatever it is that interests you, you can find the best of it here. Food, shopping, nightlife and culture are everywhere you look. Even the buildings are works of art from American architecture's golden age.
St. George Island, Bermuda - St. George Island, Bermuda. Bermuda's East End is home to the picturesque town of St. George, with its cobblestone streets bearing names like Petticoat Lane and Featherbed Alley. Stop in a pub for a cool pint of ale and sample the local fish chowder spiced with dark rum and cherry peppers. Visit historic King's Square on the waterfront and take a photograph in front of the stocks and pillories that punished colonists who gossiped, cursed, played cards or missed church over 300 years ago.

Some of Bermuda's most breathtaking beaches lie just outside St. George, including scenic Tobacco Bay. You can even opt for a candlelight walking tour of town, or a kayak safari through pristine lagoons and magnificent coral reefs

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above; this link allows you to price out the insurance plan you prefer. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
