2019 Bermuda Cruise
25 August - 1 September 2019


Posted 2019-10-05

Our August 2019 cruise from New York City to Bermuda and return, with three nights overnight in Bermuda, was a way to visit Bermuda, which we had never visited. The cruise was on Oceania Insignia, a smaller cruise ship with a capacity of 684 passengers and 400 crew members. The smaller size was an advantage because we were able to dock right downtown in St. George's and Hamilton, while larger ships must dock at the dockyard at the southwest tip of the island.

The travel agent who organized the trip for us was Jen Craig of Craig Travel in Toronto. Our previous trips with Craig were organized by them, with a tour guide, but Jen is the agent for independent travel.

Our itineray was as follows:
