New Heaven for Cruise Lovers


BERMUDA offers miles of pink beaches, turquoise seas, and stunning
blue skies above emerald golf courses? If you guessed Bermuda,
you'd be right. No other place on earth combines sun, sand, and
surf into a paradise quite like this island nation in the
Atlantic.

Only in the last few years have Bermuda ports been opened to
larger cruise ships. In an effort to keep crowds to a minimum and
the islands as pristine as possible, the government of Bermuda
placed heavy regulations on cruise lines wanting to visit their
corner of heaven. Now, though, Bermuda has opened her arms and is
welcoming travelers wishing to experience the beauty and luxury
of life among the palms. If you're searching for somewhere new to
cruise, Bermuda might just be for you.

Bermuda's history as a British colony shows in her quiet
sophistication and charm. Unlike other island getaways,
Bermudians prefer to keep the bikinis on the beach, so you won't
find any swimsuits in town. What you will find is elegant dining,
boutique shops, and a rich past that is evident in the unique
architecture of the area. Spend the day wandering the winding
alleyways of St. George's on a self-guided tour, and cap it off
with a quiet dinner for two in a stylish bistro.

For sun and sand lovers, Bermuda's miles of immaculate beaches
provide plenty of space to spread out a towel and while away the
hours. You'll have nothing more pressing to do than keep your tan
lines intact and watch the sun make its way across a cloudless
sky. The coral reefs that form the foundation of this island
chain offer protection for many of the beaches, making them ideal
for swimming. Snorkelers will love to explore the underwater
majesty of the reefs, where bright fishes and graceful stingrays
dance in the clear blue water.
