Ports

Bermuda is a group of low-forming volcanoes in the North Atlantic Ocean, consisting of 181 islands. The first known European explorer to reach Bermuda was Spanish sea captain Juan de Bermúdez in 1503, after whom the islands are named. Bermuda's culture is a mix of Native American, Spanish-Caribbean, English, Irish, and Scots. It is a British Overseas Territory. Bermuda has a humid subtropical climate, pink sand beaches and clear, cerulean blue ocean water. Go snorkeling to see the coral reef.

Boston is the capital of the Massachusetts state, well-known for its excellent universities: Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But there is more to Boston than education! Visit the Fenway Park sports complex or one of the many museums in town. The beautiful waterfront invites for a stroll and, once you're there, don't miss visiting the Tea Party Ship replica.
