October 30, 2018 | 6 Comments

The Carnival Conquest cruise ship arrived for its inaugural call to Bermuda this morning [Oct 30], with the 951 foot long cruise ship carrying an estimated 3,305 passengers and 1,160 crew members.

The Carnival Conquest is one of six cruise ships the island will host over the next two days, with Transport Minister Walter Roban saying that it is an “exciting and unprecedented time” as it marks largest number of cruise ship passengers in a single day in Bermuda’s history.

The 25-minute live video replay is below:

Officials said that on October 31st, Bermuda is projected to host 9,341 cruise ship passengers until 4pm, and 8,048 passengers from 4:30pm through November 1st.

Minister Roban added, “We expect this will be a very busy time for our Island. This influx of visitors is good for Dockyard, Hamilton and St. George’s; it’s good for our economy and it’s good for Bermuda. And we are encouraging all residents to support our efforts as we welcome these visitors to our shores.”

    good lord I hope the buses, taxis and ferries are ALL OUT IN FULL FORCE, the shops are OPEN and fully staffed and us Bermudians are as friendly and helpful as they claim so as we don’t humiliate ourselves. Now is yet another chance to shine LETS DO IT

    I phoned the ferry terminal yesterday to find out about the St. George’s ferry, as there is no schedule online for this anymore. They told me the ferry is only running on Wednesday and Thursday this week, and that the times will not be online. So that means we have no ferry on Thursday or Friday this week. She also said there may be a few runs in November, but the days and times will not be published, to call for times. This is not good enough, with all these cruise ships in this week . Also, when is cruis ship season over…..what about us Bermudians that use St. Geo. Ferry? What happens to all the workers when this happens, do they get laid off, or sit around and do nothing?

    Please explain why there are no more St. George’s ferries with all the ships in. The schedule on line has been put winter time so there is no ferry listed for St. Geo. when I called the ferry terminal they told me that this week it will only run Wednesday and Thursday, and not sure about next week, to call first. This is not good for the cruise ships……when does the season end? Not very good timing!
