Additional details

Sail Date: May 2010
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

This was our sixth cruise, third on Celebrity, and was our first visit to Bermuda. We had high expectations for this cruise and we were not disappointed.

Pre-Cruise: We drove from our home to Cape Liberty, about a 2 hour drive, on the morning of the cruise. The cruise port is very easy to find. Arrived around 11 a.m. No traffic. Parking was a breeze. A shuttle took us from the parking space to the terminal.

Embarkation: Seemless! Porters took our bags and they were delivered to our cabin by 2 p.m. Check-in line moved quickly. Everyone was very courteous.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

Cabin 2B

Our cabin was a category 2B Veranda. We were a few cabins aft of the bridge on deck 9. This meant we had a very short walk to the Spa/Pool areas as well as the Windjammer Buffet. A few floors down was the theater. Though we were very close to the elevators, the room was quiet.

Port Reviews

St. George's

We took a ferry from King's Wharf to St. George's on the first day ashore. The ride took about 45 minutes. Everything you want to see is within a 20-30 minute walk of the dock. Many beautiful sights - historic buildings, especially the churches. We toured a perfume factory and caught lunch at Tobacco Bay beach. There is a small lunch stand that actually has very reasonable sandwiches and drinks.

Hamilton

We took the ferry from King's Wharf, which is about a 20 minute ride. Though there are many historic sights in Hamilton, we spent our time doing more shopping than anything. The area is very easy to navigate. We found some reasonably-priced souvenirs within a short walk of the pier. The waterfront area is very pretty. It reminds me of Georgetown, Grand Cayman.

King's Wharf

Our ship was docked here. There are a number of shops in the area including a pottery and rum cake factory. There are some historical sights (a fort) and a Snorkel Park but we didn't partake of these. The ferry/bus terminal is a short walk from the ship. The area was very clean. One of the things I liked best about Bermuda is that no one is hassling you to braid your hair, take you to the beach or sell you street-corner souvenirs.
