Photo Tour: Cruising Bermuda

The next port of call on my virtual world cruise is Bermuda.

Three things come to mind when I think about Bermuda: pink sand, lush golf courses, and island hospitality. Bermuda is a  quick hop-skip-and-jump for cruisers residing in one of the Atlantic seaboard ports that offer cruises to the region: New York City, Bayonne , Boston, Baltimore,  Charleston and Fort Lauderdale.

St. George’s Harbor

Because of the tight passage, only small ships can use the cruise facilities at St. George, which is located at the eastern end of the Bermuda. St. George’s Harbor is between the Gates Fort and Higgs island.
