Philly Kicks Off Its Cruise Season With Bermuda Sailings

Travelers can now enjoy a second summer Labor Day weekend when CruisePhilly begins its 2008 season with sailings to the pink sandy beaches of Bermuda. Beginning Aug 30th, the luxurious Norwegian Majesty will make five 7-day trips to Bermuda, calling on the picturesque port of St. George. With the Norwegian Majesty making Philadelphia its home for the first time, vacationers can now spend even more time on the beautiful beaches of Bermuda.

Norwegian Cruise Line is the only cruise line offering three days in port in Bermuda. While in port, you can enjoy a number of shore excursions from an Adventure Cave Tour offering a hands-on experience of the caves of the Island's East End, to the Dolphin Dip allowing tourists to enjoy a rare opportunity to swim with dolphins.

"Sailings to Bermuda have always been a popular choice for regional residents looking to spend quiet, relaxing time on island beaches," said John J. Matheussen, CEO of the DRPA, the parent agency of the Port of Philadelphia and Camden. "We're pleased to offer these vacationers the opportunity to spend even more time in port in Bermuda aboard the Norwegian Majesty."

Bermuda is only the beginning of cruising options from the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal this season. The Norwegian Majesty will also be making 7-day sailings to Canada and New England departing four consecutive Saturdays beginning Oct 4th. Norwegian Majesty closes out its Philadelphia season Nov 1st with a grand 14-day repositioning cruise through the sunny heart of the Southern Caribbean.
