    Those aren’t cruise passengers, they’re refugees coming here for status! Quick, Walton, man the fort.

  2. Hmmmm, says:

    Hmmmm is it me, or does that look like the size of the old ships that used to dock in St. George’s?

  3. What a great sight seeing so soon in the season :-) But, with all this talk about Cuba and how expensive Bermuda has become these words of wisdom by Jeremy Bentham, (who’d been a jurist and philosopher 15 Feb 1748-1832)maybe appropriate: “The question is not can they reason?, nor can they talk?, but can they suffer?”
    We need to get our “boat” back up on even keel…

    Not sure if she could traverse town cut at a 105′ beam, but I’m certain the BTA encourages occasional callers that can to berth in the Old Towne, right?

  5. I drove to Dock Yard to see this boat. It was great having it in Bermuda for the day. Thank-you.

    I would like to know what it would cost to have a cruise ship in St Georges -break those figures down, so that each cost/service is known to the general public. Are the previous cruise ships that did serve St. George,s no longer in existence ?
