Cruising to Bermuda from NYC

My FI and I are cruising to Bermuda from NYC for our honeymoon in the beginning of June. We are cruising on Celebrity cruise line, I have been reading that casual attire is frowned upon in the towns. Does anyone have any suggetions as to what to bring to wear on the island or any tips for cruising. Has anyone cruised this line to bermuda before?? Is the weather warm this time of year. Help!

Your lucky to be going to Bermuda it's a beautiful place. I have been there several times in the past five years and cruised there on the Horizon
( Celebrity )last summer. Years ago Bermuda was more formal than it is now. But if you plan on eating out in Hamilton "smart casual" is good at the nicer restaurants. It seems that people just wear what they want these days and it is excepted. But it's nice when dress codes are followed. You will probably dress more formal on the ship for dinner. During the day they do frown on bathing suits without coverups and bare feet almost everywhere except the beach & pool. The weather is great in June ( hot & a little bit humid.) Rent the scooters and go all over the island there are so many beautiful beaches and sights. I am sure you will have a wonderful time I have never met anyone yet that didn't.

I am also cruising on Celebrity in Jun, The 8th on the Zenith, which ship are you on.
I was in Bermuda, Sep of 2000. While just sightseeing I wore shorts and tee shirts. Just not bathing suits and really skimpy outfits.

I have visited Bermuda many times. Smart casual is acceptable for dining in town except at a few restaurants. Evenings we try to wear sundress/skirts and the men collared shirts/shorts. Although the scooters are great to get around the Island, don't hesitate to purchase a bus/ferry pass which will take you everywhere. The scooters are not for everyone and lots of accidents occur. Great shopping awaits you! Make sure you spend an afternoon on Horseshoe Beach. Don't Stop the Carnival is a fun night (dinner cruise). The Blue Safari offers a great water tour as long as you don't mind getting wet. The Crystal Caves are quite interesting and a good way to get cool on those hot days. If you aren't in good shape though, it can be a long climb back up the stairs. Make sure you do a few hours at the Swizzle Inn (and make sure you are not driving). Those little drinks catch up on you! For a nice lunch in Hamilton, try the Waterloo House just up from the ferry terminal. Right on the Harbour and great food. Do make sure you do a snorkel trip although you will find snorkelling great from most beaches. Also, there is a champagne sail cruise which is worth the trip. If you are there on Friday night, the Newstead had been having a great party from about 5 to 10 pm. I believe they had their own boat to take people from Hamilton over. This may have changed - best to ask the locals.

Went to Bermuda in June of 2000 out of Boston. Weather was warm and a little humid. Had one rain shower during the week between 7am and 9 am one day. We docked in St. George, but you may be in Hamilton. We ate most meals on the ship but you should be ok at most restaurants as long as you don't wear a bathing suit. Shorts, shoes and shirt are necessary.Horseshoe beach is great, try snorkeling there. We also took out Jet Ski's for an hour in St. George and cruised up and down the shore outside the harbor. Also went parasailing there.For the most part, dress is casual except for meals on the ship.
