    I recall the former administration telling us there were no small cruise ships to be had. Well, I was in Hamilton this morning when the Hamburg was docking. What a great sight! Perfect for St. George’s!!

      Yes, it’s a shame that St. Geo’s and Hamilton are missing out on this type of business. Looking at the cruise schedule for 2013, there is not a single cruise visit in Hamilton or St. George’s in the months of June, July and August – they’re missing virtually the whole season! This is the Hamburg’s sole stop in BDA for the year – imagine if we got them to come weekly, it would be great for the city. We should be courting the smaller cruises like these as well as the bigger ships. Hint, hint to the Tourism Minister.

    Saw a bus on North Shore full of tourists! What a beautiful sight! Hoping they enjoy their stay, get excellent smiling service where-ever they go on island, and tell all their friends!

    Can someone please explain how the cruise arrivals drop from 180 in 2011 – 127 in 2013. Difference of 53 arrivals – DOES PLP WISH TO ANSWER?

    The Hamburg brings back memories of a freighter by the same name which visited the island in the 60′s …. Does anyone remember that?

    You blind and stupid OBA supporters really think the OBA brought this ship to Bermuda? Really? And you have the nerve to call PLP supporters ignorant! Lol

  10. Ganja Mon, I hear you :-) What is a crying shame is that we’d been informed there were NO small cruise ships available :-(

    Nothing better than being on a ship moored dockside in Hamilton.
