Cruises between Boston and Bermuda on Norwegian Cruise Lines may also call in Bar Harbor or Portland, Maine and in Canadian ports such as Halifax, Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; Saint John, Newfoundland; and Quebec City. Another option is a longer Caribbean cruise with stops in ports such as San Juan, Puerto Rico; Willemstad, Curacao; Oranjestad, Aruba; and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Norwegian Cruise Lines also offers a seven-day cruise that travels between Boston and Bermuda with no other stops.
Because of Bermuda's isolated location in the Atlantic Ocean, Norwegian's two-week cruises call in other ports that are relatively close to Boston. Visitors to Portland can enjoy the city's thriving arts district, while Bar Harbor offers a wealth of outdoor activities. Canada's Atlantic provinces offer world-famous seafood, a scenic coastline, numerous historic sites in Halifax and the world's highest tides in the Bay of Fundy. Visitors to Quebec can enjoy French-speaking culture, quaint towns and fine dining.
Passengers who prefer to visit other tropical beaches need to set aside 21 to 30 days because of the increased sailing time between Bermuda and the Caribbean. While Norwegian offers cruises to Bermuda and Canada that both embark and disembark in Boston, its Caribbean schedules typically embark in Boston, travel to Bermuda, then travel to the Caribbean before disembarking in New Orleans.
