Tiny Bermuda’s pink beaches touch turquoise waters. Sweet frangipanis grow between art galleries and museums painted in pastels, and trails meander to the island’s quiet corners. Stroll the tight streets of 400-year-old St. George’s Parish, the oldest English settlement in the New World. Book a boat tour or fishing charter (marlin, tuna, and wahoo). Swim with dolphins, or drive a golf ball down an oceanside fairway.

Enjoy seven relaxing days with Norwegian Cruise Line as you sail to and from the island of Bermuda. Try your luck at the casino, unwind at the onboard spa, clink your glass at the lounge night club, and feast on speciality dishes at one of the many restaurants on your ship.

Our port of call is the Royal Naval Dockyard, a limestone barracks-turned-mall packed with restaurants, pubs, and markets. Visit the Clayworks and Glassworks, grab some grub at the Frog and Onion (in a 200-year-old cooperage), and eat a Bermuda rum cake!

DeNure’s cross-island tour introduces Bermuda’s unique culture and heritage. Then, use your 2-day transit pass to see colonial landmarks, shops that carry Bermuda’s namesake shorts, and tropical wilderness up close. This little paradise place will leave a big impression!

Bid the island breeze farewell and sail back to Boston for a guided city tour and lunch in Quincy Market before your return journey home.

 

Exploring Bermuda

BUSES: The island’s buses are frequent, plentiful, and service most areas of interest. You can’t miss them – they are painted pink with blue stripes! With 11 routes, the transportation system has the entire island covered. Route 7 is the most convenient as it travels between King’s Wharf and Hamilton.

FERRIES: Four public ferry routes offer a picturesque transit alternative. These relaxed sea routes offer a superb sea or harbour crossing with unrivalled scenery. The popular orange ferry route runs directly from King’s Wharf to the historic town of St. George.

OTHER: Rental cars are not available anywhere on the island, but at only 21 square miles in size, Bermuda is easy and safe to navigate by smaller modes of transport. Rent a scooter (moped), bicycle (pedal bike), hybrid electric bike, or segway. Taxis and carriage rides round out your options! Note that Bermudians drive on the left, and the speed limit is a slow 20mph!

Few steps towards west there is a lovely picturesque cove surrounded by rocks – Port Royal Cove. There are facilities including cafe, concession, toilet & shower. It’s about 35 minutes by bus (#7) from dockyard.

Packing

  • Sunscreen is an essential product to have, regardless of the climate. Since UV exposure is unavoidable, a hat and sunglasses are also suggested for your protection, even in the winter.
  • Mosquito repellent can prove useful in wooded areas or in the evenings in some regions.
  • Comfort is important when on vacation. Bring comfortable walking shoes. And loose, casual clothing is suggested to keep you cozy.
  • Pack extra batteries and memory cards for your camera.
  • Always pack an extra jacket or sweater in case of inclement weather or cooler evenings. DeNureTours recommends you dress in layers, so you can add or remove layers if the temperature rises or drops.
  • Use every corner, nook and cranny of your suitcase when packing. Rolled sweaters and bulky clothing occupy less space, but clothing that wrinkles easily should be laid flat. Roll socks or underclothing and pack them into shoes, and slip smaller items into side pockets.
  • Use sample-sized toiletry items and always transport containers of creams and liquids in a sealed plastic bag.
  • Keep an extra set of keys for your luggage.
  • Always prepare for the possibility of rain. An umbrella, or rain jacket will easily fit in your luggage, and could prove to be the most useful article you pack. When travelling as a couple, bring two so neither person gets half wet.
  • Pack your bathing suit.
  • Pack a good book, or a deck of cards to keep you busy during free time.
  • Leave items of monetary or sentimental value at home. Costume and faux jewelry always travels well.
  • If you require corrective lenses, pack an extra pair of glasses or contacts.
  • If you wear dentures, and have a second set, pack them just in case. You’d be surprised how often these important items end up where they shouldn’t.
  •  Not all hotel rooms are equipped with alarm clocks. While most hotels offer wake-up calls, a small travel alarm clock might prove useful.
  • Couples travelling together may find it wise to split their belongings between two suitcases. If one suitcase should go missing, neither person is left without a change of clothes.

Medical

  • Remember to pack any medications or prescriptions in your carry-on and not in your suitcase in case of emergency or luggage misplacement. Medications should be packed in their original containers for security reasons.
  • Keep a listing of your recent medical history with you, including medications you currently take, prescription or otherwise, as well as allergies you suffer from, and any medical conditions you have. Carry the listing in your wallet, and leave a copy with your emergency contact person at home.

Documents

  • Identify your luggage with an identification tag as well as your DeNureTours luggage tags.
  • If you carry travellers’ cheques, record the numbers of the cheques and keep this list in a separate location. When travelling as a couple, put some cheques in your partner’s name so you both have access to funds.
  • Always carry your travel insurance policy with you, and read it carefully before you leave.
  • Always carry your passport, or other important identification on your person. Make a photocopy to keep in your suitcase.
  • Ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months after your return date. This is a requirement for entering certain countries.
  • Always check the spelling of your name on all documentation you receive. Often, your travel documents must match your passport or birth certificate. It is imperative that your legal name be listed correctly on your documents. Failure to comply may result in your being denied entry to a country, or boarding on an airplane or cruise ship. Name changes on documents may be subject to a change fee.
  • Use extra copies of your travel itinerary and hotel listing to distribute to friends or relatives, so you can be reached in case of emergency.
  • Keep a log of your purchases, including what you paid in foreign currency and the equivalent in Canadian dollars. This will assist you in filling out customs forms. Keep all receipts.

General Travel

  • Secure your home before you leave. Arrange for a friend or neighbour to pick up mail and check in periodically. Have someone cut your lawn (or shovel your driveway) and care for your property. Set automatic timers on the lights and television. Empty the refrigerator of perishables. Lower your thermostat to save on energy.
  • When flying, drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, and limit your intake of caffeine and alcoholic beverages.
  • To avoid circulatory problems on a plane or coach, walk up the aisle every hour or so. Periodically, stretch your legs, arms, shoulders and neck.
  • Arrive early for flights. DeNureTours recommends to check-in 90 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights, or 2-3 hours prior for international flights.
  • An inflatable travel pillow can make you more comfortable on long coach rides or flights. The U-shaped pillow keeps your head from rolling during travel, reducing the risk of neck pain.
  • Avoid the use of perfume or scented sprays on the coach or an airplane. These are confined spaces, so be courteous to your fellow travellers who may be allergic or sensitive to scents.
  • Get as much rest as possible before you leave.
  • Try your best to be flexible. Unexpected things can happen. Your holiday will be more enjoyable if you are open-minded.

Gratuities

Tips to waiters, taxi drivers, step-on guides, tour directors and drivers are a tangible way for you to express your appreciation for jobs well done. This practice, though customary, is voluntary and is not included in tour prices. As a guide to the amounts to tip, the following amounts are suggested:

  • Taxi Drivers – Drivers should be tipped 10% of the taxi fare.
  • Waiters – For meals that are not included in the tour price, tip waiters between 15% and 20% of your bill, but never less than $1.
  • Tour Directors and Drivers – A gratuity of $4 per person per day is suggested.

The pace of a tour varies by itinerary, as each destination, its sightseeing and the activities are unique. Pacing is often subject to personal interpretation, but our trip pace indicator on each tour page may assist you in determining if a tour is suitable for you.

Day-by-day itinerary descriptions can be found on our website or requested from our office. Generally, the more activities included, distance travelled in a day, or number of hotel changes, will increase the pace of a tour.

Some of the most unique sightseeing is found in locations that can be a challenge for motorcoaches, especially in historic areas. For your comfort, we recommend packing walking shoes so you fully enjoy every aspect of your holiday.

Tours with the highest “On-the-go” ratings require a level of activity that is not suitable for those who use either walkers or wheelchairs. If a trip pace is not ideally suited for you, our reservations team will be happy to help you find your perfect vacation.

 

Bermuda

“This trip was a mother daughter experience. We sailed with Holland America and because their ships are generally smaller we docked right downtown in Hamilton. It was great because we could come and go and return to the ship as we liked. The shore trips were excellent, tours of the island and we even got to the beach on a boat. My daughters health was not the best so we choose to do our own thing and not join in with the group most times but our DeNure guide made it a point to seek us out each day to make sure we were having fun. We had breakfast in the cabin every day so we could take our time before we had to meet the world. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays that I have had.”
