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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
