Family Favorites in Bermuda
Bermuda feels like a fantasy family island. And while there are so many on- and off-shore activities to choose from --beaches and snorkeling, sailing and biking-- you also won’t want to miss the most memorable sea-faring experience: swimming with the dolphins! You’ll have the opportunity to commune with these beautiful mammals up close, and even have a photograph taken.
Onshore, be sure to stop by Cooper’s Island Nature Preserve. Whether you’re taking a romantic outing or family adventure, this is the perfect time for everyone to unplug from devices and other distractions, and travel back in time to see one of the most picturesque places in nature.
Cooper’s Island, with its turquoise waters and untouched reserves and salt marshes, may be that one photo-opp moment that stays with you whenever your mind travels back to Bermuda.
The Best of Every Activity
If you’ve ever cruised anywhere, then you know that it is quite unusual to have expanded time to explore a port in great depth, the way a local would. Norwegian’s offering of three full days in Bermuda is unlike any other itinerary.
There are also so many modes of spirited transportation (from scooter to ferry) to easily and leisurely explore the island’s rich bounty of activities.
While your days may be filled with beaching, snorkeling, golfing, biking, exploring, and shopping, (and then some!), with Norwegian’s freestyle cruising, you’ll never be regulated to eat at a particular time or place. So allow yourself the flexibility to explore the island and take in all there is to do in paradise. There are plenty of favorite things to discover on ship and shore in Bermuda.
