Cruise vs land costs
While Bermuda cruises offer a lot for your money, Bermuda land costs are among the highest on earth. For instance, restaurants and resorts are very pricey (though of high quality).
Nearly everything in Bermuda is imported. What you see in stores you can usually find back home, sometimes for a lower price.
The US dollar is widely accepted and is equal to its Bermudian dollar counterpart.
Bermuda has long been a self-governing British dependency.
Bermuda is 37 kilometers (23 miles) long and slightly less than 3 kilometers (2 miles) wide at its broadest point. The word "altitude" is seldom heard on the island because it's relatively flat.
The island has about 65,000 citizens. About 63% are black and 33% white.
Bermuda attracts slightly more than 200,000 tourists per year. That puts the tourist-to-resident ratio at 3 to 1.
