Bermuda launches Horseshoe Bay shuttle for cruisers

By Tom Stieghorst
HORSESHOE BAY BEACHBermuda cruise visitors will be able to ride a dedicated shuttle to Horseshoe Bay Beach, starting this week.

The shuttle, sponsored by the West End Development Corp. and the Ministry of Tourism and Transit, is expected to take pressure off of the crowded public buses that cruise tourists have been using.

Priced at $16 roundtrip, the shuttles will leave the cruise pier from 8 a.m. to 3 pm daily. The last return bus leaves at 6 p.m.

The minibus shuttle will serve the King’s Wharf terminal, which is used by Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Dawn, Celebrity Summit and Royal Caribbean International’s Explorer of the Seas.
