People hoping to set their eyes – and feet – on Bermuda’s historic town of St George’s will be getting a minimum of 12 opportunities via Norwegian Cruise Line vessels each year for the foreseeable future, giving visitors even more excuses to choose the island as their port of call.
The guaranteed 12 visits per year to St. George’s come as a result of the Bermuda Government’s renewed agreement with Norwegian Cruise Line, lasting from 2017 to 2022.
Bermuda Premier Michael Dunkley noted that NCL is one of the Island’s “longest serving cruise partners”, and announced that Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has agreed to provide a minimum of 12 cruise calls to the historic town per year from 2017 to 2022.
A World Heritage Destination, St George’s was originally settled by English colonists in the early 1600s and was the first permanent settlement on the island.
The charming town invites visitors to take a step back in time with its well-maintained architecture, colourfully named roads, beautiful scenery, with a modern touch of shopping and dining thrown in to connect the past with the present.
St. George’s served as the capital of the island until 1815, when it was switched to the City of Hamilton.
Since that time, St. George’s has slowly evolved from a centre of commerce and port activity to a charming and colourful town with deep historic ties, offering up a look at colonial days past to all who venture within it.
