Wow. What kind of title is that – mixing danger and intrigue with cruise vacations? Well, I think someone should answer the question, so …
Where do I begin?
Let's start with some information about the location of the Bermuda triangle. As one might guess, it has something to do with the island of Bermuda. There are actually several theories about the location of the Bermuda triangle.
For our purposes we take the generally accepted location of the area between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami. Draw a line on a map from Bermuda to Puerto Rico to Miami and back to Bermuda and you have what many people accept as the Bermuda triangle.
You have undoubtedly heard of all the mysterious disappearances in the area of the "Devil & # 39; s Triangle" as it is sometimes called. Ships and planes disappear without a trace. Navigation instruments go crazy … It's a miracle that somebody ever comes through the area!
Yet every year countless ships sail over the waters in the Triangle. Aircraft fly over on their transatlantic flights from the Southeast US to Europe, Asia and Africa.
What about cruises?
So what about cruises? Do cruises actually travel through the Triangle?
Believe it or not, almost every cruise ship that sails from the east coast of the United States to the Caribbean, sails in or through the Bermuda triangle. (Some Miami cruises may miss most of the area when traveling to the west of the Caribbean. But they come from or near a point of the triangle.)
Have disasters been reported aboard cruise ships sailing over these waters? Have there been disruptions? Have there been any concerns?
I have not encountered any incident aboard cruise ships on the waters between Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico that could not be explained. A few weather-related incidents have occurred, but they have related to storms in the area.
Storm hazards in the Bermuda triangle
As I said above, there are incidents related to the weather. Every cruise in Caribbean waters is subject to bad weather, especially during the hurricane season when the reported incident occurred.
It does not matter where you are sailing, when you are sailing, this can be more dangerous than the actual location itself. Nowadays, cruise ships have the ability to identify dangerous waters and the captains have the authority to avoid stormy weather. There are backup plans for cruises in the events of these seasonal storms.
So how dangerous is it?
How dangerous is it to sail through the Bermuda triangle? Let me ask you these questions:
How many people have you heard in the news who died in car accidents? Walking through the street? Bicycles?
How many unnatural deaths have you ever heard on cruise ships sailing the waters of the Bermuda Triangle?
Every death on a cruise ship is almost international news. The road deaths you hear about are only the local ones.
It is more dangerous to walk through a busy street than to sail through the Bermuda triangle.
