Cruise Countdown: Bermuda in the Age of the SS United States

Join us on the upcoming SS United States Legacy Cruise to Bermuda! During the 7-night cruise in May, we’ll be reliving the era of transatlantic liner travel with social events celebrating the music, dance, and fashion of the age.

Today, we’re looking back at Bermuda in the 1950s and ‘60s, when the island was a popular port-of-call for many great ocean liners — including the SS United States!

A Bermuda travelogue from 1961 showcases many of the island’s sights, including its stunning coral reefs, the capital city of Hamilton, and Somerset Bridge — the smallest drawbridge in the world.

These home movies were taken by passengers who traveled aboard the SS Queen of Bermuda in 1955. The Queen of Bermuda was operated by the Furness-Bermuda line and traveled weekly between New York and the island.

The Pollin Group and the Conservancy have partnered to offer the 7-night SS United States Legacy Cruise to Bermuda aboard the Celebrity Summit. Sailing in May 2018, the cruise will depart from Cape Liberty (Bayonne, New Jersey) on Sunday, May 6 and will make port at King's Wharf, Bermuda on May 9 for a three-day stay. The ship will return to New Jersey on Sunday, May 13. CLICK HERE to view a fact sheet on the SS United States Legacy Cruise, and HERE to learn more about Bermuda!
