From New York City we are bound for Bermuda, a dreamy tropical isle with a
decidedly British flair.
In Bermuda, pink sand and blue skies will paint your days with surprise!
Here, proper business attire is Bermuda shorts, cricket is the national sport, and afternoon tea
goes without saying. Not to be missed - the famous pink beaches and secluded coves of South Shore Park, the quaint
shops and boutiques of Hamilton, and the rich colonial history of St. George's.
To help you delve deeply into the color and culture of Bermuda, and perhaps enjoy a few rounds of
golf, we'll have one overnight in St. George's and two overnights in the port of Hamilton with the ms
Veendam as our island-based hotel.
Holland America's msVeendam is ideal for Bermuda. She is a premium mid-size ship, the
perfect size to navigate the narrow entrances to the harbors in Hamilton and St.
George’s. As a guest on the Veendam you'll be able to step off the ship right in the
center of each town. Ships larger than the Veendam must tie up at the Dockyard facility a
considerable distance from both towns.
Day 1 (Sunday) - May 9, 2010
Start and end your cruise in one of the most vibrant cities in the world -
New York, New York - "The Big Apple", "The City That
Never Sleeps". There is no better place than New York to begin and end a
cruise. It's definitely where you want to come early and stay late. Pre and
post cruise packages will create never to be forgotten memories for years to come..
Day 2 (Monday) - May 10, 2010
What better way to start a cruise vacation than spending a full day at
sea to do nothing or everything...whatever your heart desires?
Get up at the crack of dawn to watch a glorious sunrise over the horizon of the
ocean or sleep in late, order breakfast from stateroom service to be enjoyed in your elegant cabin or on its
spacious verandah. If you opted for the serenity of a Spa Suite, you can dig right in and start
using the yoga mats and other modern spa amenities found in your cabin...
This is just the beginning....
Do you have an inner sous chef? Good! You can whet your appetite for cooking and discovery in
Holland America Line's Culinary Arts Center, presented by Food & Wine magazine.
The heart of the action is the state-of-the-art deomonstration kitchen where talented chefs offer gourmet
presentations and tasting events - complete with recipes for you to try at home. There are also intimate hands-on
cooking classes designed to highlight classic favorite recipes or tantalizing tastes of the region we are visiting
Wait! The day's not over...there's a stunning art collection to see, "luxe" shopping to do, or have
a heavenly hot stone massage...
Don't forget to eat lunch - prhaps duck-filled spring rolls with a glass of minted iced tea -
because it's almost time for dinner...be it in the luxurious main Dining Room, The
Pinnacle Grill, or made-to-order specialties in the Lido Restaurant...
It's Showtime! Lucky you. You'll be sailing aboard Holland America Line's
msVeendam where "Showroom at Sea" debuted.
With its new, intimate seating, large dance floor and cocktail tables, the Showroom at
Sea has the feel of a glamorous Hollywood or New York nightclub that we all remember from the
Not ready to call it quits?...there's a nightcap waiting for you in the Crow's
Nest nightclub where you can brush up on your dancing just in case you get that all important call from
Dancing With The Stars!
Done for the night? Not to worry...you'll have another day at sea on the way back to New York. It
will be your chance to do all the things you didn't have time for today...
Days 3 & 4 (Tuesday & Wednesday) - May 11 & 12,
St. George's, Bermuda
What qualifies an entire town for UNESCO World Heritage Site status?
For St. George's (est. 1612) it was both British charm - stone buildings, neatly
bricked streets, heraldic signs - and the British Army and Royal Navy military installations that protected it
through the centuries.
Among the town's many historic strongholds is Fort Catherine, housing breathtaking
replicas of Britain's Crown Jewels.
If Golf is on your mind - Bermuda has more acreage dedicated to
Golf per square mile than anywhere else. Their world-class golf courses have one hazard few others
can claim: arresting beauty.
You don't even have to bring your clubs since they're available to rent. Just some "proper attire"
to meet the island's traditional dress code: a shirt with a collar and sleeves, and slacks or shorts no shorter
than - appropriately - Bermuda length...
Days 5 & 6 (Thursday & Friday) - May 13 &
14, 2010 -
The port city of Hamilton, has been the capital and administrative,
commercial, entertainment and shopping center of Bermuda since 1815.
The city's namesake, Henry Hamilton, found his way to Bermuda by way of the
British Army. He established the municipality of Hamilton and became it's first Governor in 1788.
Little did he know that Hamilton would turn into the bustling city and vacation destination it is
