Doug Jones, one of America's premier travelogue producers, invites you to join him for a seven day cruise to Bermuda.
Located 650 miles off Cape Hatteras in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda is one of the most idyllic island destinations of the world.
Our one week summer cruise begins in the heart of New York with a fast paced tour of the most exciting city on earth. Visit Central Park, Fifth Avenue, the "Great White Way" by night and much more.
You'll see historic film of the days when the New York harbor teamed with ocean liners from around the world and the famous "flying boats" whisked travelers off to Bermuda.
From New York our ship, the M.V. Horizon, sails out to see on a summer cruise that has been popular with Americans since the 1920s when the Queen of Bermuda and the Monarch of Bermuda sailed the route.
We'll dock on Front Street in the center of Hamilton, Bermuda 's quaint and very British capital. From this central location we'll explore this 21 mile fishhook shaped island the Bermuda way, by motor scooter and ferry boat.
Highlights include the Dockyard complex, a ride on the submarine "Enterprise", the smallest drawbridge in the world, the Gibb's Hill lighthouse, pink sand beaches, businessmen in Bermuda shorts, St. George, the Bermuda Biological Station for Research, the Aquarium, the Crystal Caves, a reenactment of a "dunking" off King's Square, stone forts, shopping, artists, glassblowers, gardens, perfume making and much more!
And we'll enjoy all of this from the comfort of one of the world's great ships. You'll meet the Capitan, visit the engine room and galleys, and enjoy the endless variety of activities a cruise ship provides.
But most of all you'll meet the Bermuda people, 58,000 friendly people who live in one of the most radically harmonious societies of the world, one of the last outposts of the British Empire and an island steeped in a rich and colorful history.
" Cruising to Bermuda" will take you away on a wonderful journey of enchantment to one of the most beautiful islands of the world. Welcome aboard! Bermuda Calls.
