'You go to heaven if you want - I'd rather stay here in Bermuda.' So gushed Mark Twain in the 19th century, and Bermuda's
promise of sun and sea still lures vacationers to its shores. These days celebs like Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones call Bermuda home,
and millionaire executives pop over for a little R&R.

Holland America Cruise
We are pleased to announce new itineraries departing from New York City to Bermuda, a dreamy tropical isle with a decidedly British flair.
From Historic St. George, a charming UNESCO World Heritage Site to Hamilton, with pastel-colored storefronts, there is something for everyone.
Here, proper business attire is Bermuda shorts, cricket is the national sport and afternoon tea goes without saying. An interesting fact about
Bermuda is there are more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Highlights: the famous pink beaches and secluded coves of
South Shore Park, the quaint shops and boutiques of Hamilton, the rich colonial history of St. George. Holland America’s 7-day Bermuda itinerary is
perfect for families with summer departures from August – October, all conveniently roundtrip from New York.

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.
No matter what direction you look in, this town exudes period charm. Some of its centuries-old buildings have been set aside as museums,
but others continue to function as public meeting places, churches and shops. Even the names of the public ways - King's Square, Old Maid's
Lane and Featherbed Alley, to name a few - conjure up images of the past.
St George has a pleasantly slow pace that sets it aside from the bustle of Hamilton, Bermuda's present-day capital. With the exception of
outlying forts and beaches, all the main sights are within walking distance of the town center and are easily explored on foot. Be sure to give
yourself a full day to appreciate all the town has to offer and treat yourself to lunch at one of those breezy harborside restaurants.
If you're touring in winter, consider coming on Wednesday, as it's the one day of the week when the Old State House and the Old Rectory are open
to the public. If you're visiting in the summer, keep in mind that cruise ships dock at St George during the week so it tends to be less crowded on

North of the wide Sargasso Sea, Bermuda straddles the unlikely fence between all things British and Caribbean. Discover pink-sand beaches,
colorful cottages and British colonial charm. Sample shore excursions: Hamilton Bay Cruise; Dock Yard Walk with the Admiral.
Virtually everything in Bermuda revolves around the City of Hamilton. Whether you're talking politics, commerce or geography, Hamilton is the hub of
it all. This is where people head to attend to business, do some serious shopping or spend a night on the town.
Hamilton manages to look quaint and traditional on the one hand and bustling and cosmopolitan on the other. You can casually linger over a rum swizzle
at a century-old waterfront restaurant while international business executives power lunch at the next table; order yourself local rockfish with peas
or opt for the sushi; take a horse-and-carriage ride along the mansion-lined waterfront; or hop on a scooter and get tied up in rush-hour traffic.
Hamilton's pulse is Front St, a harborfront road lined with pastel-colored Victorian buildings in bright lemon, lime, apricot and sky blue. Many of
them have overhanging verandas, where you can wine and dine as you watch the boats ferry across the harbor.
In addition to laying claim to the main government offices, and the handsome buildings that house them, Hamilton has a handful of other interesting
sightseeing spots. But perhaps more than anything, it's the plethora of restaurants that attracts visitors to the city. Fully half of all of Bermuda's
eateries are in the City of Hamilton and the choices run the gamut from delightful little cafés to impeccable fine-dining restaurants.
Because Hamilton serves as a central terminus and transfer point for island buses, you will visit it frequently if you use the public bus system.
Note that Hamilton is commonly called 'town' by Bermudians, so 'going to town' means, without a doubt, going to Hamilton.
