NCL FERRY PLATINUM

Recommended Posts

Do Latitude Platinum passengers have any priority access to NCL FERRY?

NCL doesn't have a private ferry, do they? All ferries are operated by the Bermuda government and I would not think any cruise passenger would have any kind of priority boarding. Boarding doesn't take long anyway.

There is an NCL-owned ferry, for use by NCL passengers only, that runs between Dockyard and St. George

The ferry service is part of an agreement between NCLH and Bermuda's government . I believe this is the third year the free ferry will be running.

Do you know if they will be running during the construction? This ferry was docked near us last year and those docks are gone. Just saw a post on our roll call the pier isn't done yet and we sail next Friday. NCL will be happy if they take longer it will keep folk's on the ship more to spend if they have to use a tender to go ashore.

Thanks

There is no construction going on where the NCL ferry docks at Heritage Wharf so there's nothing to prevent the ferry from running. If you look at portbermudawebcam.com you'll see the Oceania Riviera is docked at Heritage Wharf right now and the spot where the NCL ferry docks is right across the pier from the ship to the left of the customs building.

 

The construction is at the adjacent Kings Wharf. I assume you're on the Norwegian Gem. I have no idea what they'll do about your ship's docking, although you could dock at Heritage Wharf the day you arrive as it's unoccupied and then go to anchor and tendering on Monday before the Anthem of the Seas arrives .

 

You know there isn't a heck of a lot that NCL could sell you if you're on  board a bit longer because of the need to tender. The on board shops will be closed regardless and the casino doesn't open until 9 pm.

NCL does not want to tender. NCL and other cruise lines want docks and often contribute big money to building docks at ports so they won't have to tender.

Always get answers on this site thanks. Not a fan of the chance we may tender but hey we are in beautiful Bermuda 😀. I was being flip about NCL being happy been there enough to know what's open etc.

Your text is in my message because you undoubtedly accidentally typed it into the body of my post that you quoted. I've found you have to be very careful when using the new forum format to start comments in the right spot lest they end up in the wrong place like yours did. :classic_smile:

If you go to portofbermudawebcam.com, you'll see that the Carnival Pride is docked at Kings, and the NCL Getaway is docked at Heritage.

 

Earlier this morning, the NCL ferry was docked in front of the Getaway, but it is probably underway to St. George's now.

The weather looked a bit stormy,  with choppy water in the harbor.   I hope that the ships  had a decent cruise down to Bermuda.
