Bermuda Adds Private Beach Shuttles for Cruise Passengers
Horseshoe Bay beach in Bermuda

(4:05 p.m. EDT) -- Good news for cruisers who are Bermuda bound; starting this week, the port has added a cruise ship shuttle to the famed Horseshoe Bay beach.

A roundtrip ticket on the private mini-bus shuttle between King's Wharf (where most cruise ships dock, including Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Dawn, Celebrity Summit and Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas) costs $16.; they are sold at the Beach Shuttle Booth at Zone 6 at the Dockyard.

It runs to the beach continuously between 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Last shuttle back to the cruise ship terminal is at 6 p.m.

The shuttle addition is courtesy of the island's West End Development Corporation and the Ministry of Tourism and Transport, and is part of an ongoing effort to improve traffic and congestion in King's Wharf. A new system was necessary once Norwegian Breakaway, with its 4,028 passengers, started making three-day calls in Bermuda last May.

Previously, cruise ship passengers could take a public bus to the South Side beaches, but they were dropped off at the main road and had to make a relatively steep walk downhill to the beach. The new shuttle service drops off and picks up passengers at the beach entrance.

More information about the shuttles is available at www.thewestend.bm
