    And how many cruisers get off the ships at night?
    Since we allowed in port entertainment / casinos etc Bermuda is lucky to see even .01% get off in the evening…..
    We need to produce something worthy of the cruise ships support that also makes $$$$ for all !

      Well you should be glad that the Gov allowed the casinos to open in port cause if they didn’t (and as mentioned in earlier posts) the cruise lines were thinking to send their ships to other destinations and we would have zero cruise ships. I guess you can’t please everyone.

        Don’t believe everything you hear, as that wasn’t entirely true. The cruise lines used that as a bargaining chip, but they know full well that Bermuda is one of their popular destinations.
        They WOULD NOT have pulled out of Bermuda, they stood to lose millions of dollars if they did.

      Quite a lot actually. Have you ever been to Dockyard after dark while ships are in port? Its pretty busy.

      • Self says:

        @Micro, not really.
        I traveled to Dockyard pretty regularly last summer, and I was shocked at how quiet it was. I did have the opportunity to see Mr. Brannon perform- simply brilliant!! I would wager that our local entertainment is on par or better than some of the performances on the ship.
        The government should do more do help the local entertainers when the ship is in port. The passengers can always take advantage of the ship’s entertainment during the sea days…that way everybody gets a piece of the pie.

      Nothing is ever offered to the “cruisers” at night…I have cruised to Bermuda 8 times now…another one coming in May & next year..I have always gotten back on the ship come dusk as most of the stores closes, and nothing is really offered to us…when we use to dock in St Georges….they would have band & things going on at night over in that area, raffles in that bar etc…and things to do other than getting back on the ship..I don’t gamble & never go in the casinos..
