My wife loved the Glass Blowing and the beautiful selection of pieces available for sale. We did a little shopping in the Clocktower Mall. They have some upscale merchandise available as well as the usual local trinkets. We also toured the museum but didn't get to see much because of the construction. The dolphins were cute, even thought there wasn't... More

Lots of things to do within a very short stroll of the cruise ships. I know our ship the Celebrity Summit even offered a shore excursion here for the beach and a chair??? Nice little mall in the remains of the Royal Navy Base. A couple of restaurants and pubs can be found too. Maritime museum and local crafts are... More

So much to see and do there. The shopping was delightful, dining choices were even better. The ferry terminal was easy and a fun way to get around the island.

My hubby & I got the ferry over to Royal Naval Dockyard from Hamilton - journey was only 20 minutes. The Dockyard isn't that big so even a half-day visit would be adequate. The weather was quite bad when we visited - it rained the entire time but we did manage to find things to do under shelter. It was... More

The dockyard has a lot to offer for the cruise passenger. There is snorkel beach which has wonderful fish in the ocean. People bring bread and the fish jump out of the water. There is the Bermuda Glass Factory and you can see a demonstration of glass blowing. Beware the place is very hot. Next door is the Bermuda Rum... More

Lots of shops for everything a tourist may want. Caters well for the crazy numbers of people that two cruise ships offloads. We went to go take a look at the beach area and I was angry by having my day pack and my wife's hand bag searched. I had a two bite snack taken, reason being they wanted you... More

Fun shops to explore. We enjoyed visiting the Glass workshop. On the last day of our stay, we planned to go to Tobacco Bay beach but severe rain prevented us from doing that. The weather improved in the afternoon and we spent a few hours at the Snorkel Park beach in the Dockyard area. Not the best beach ever, but... More

Beautiful sea port. Usually has outdoor music as well as a good sized shopping plaza.We came on a ship so it was great especially if you didn't want to go too far on the island. You can just walk 10 minutes have fun and go back. Nice, clean and safe!

Bermuda is a beautiful island with so much to do. Most cruise ship port here. You can rent scooters jet ski shop dolphin quest buses ferry & get your passport stamped at the yellow house near the cruise ship or you can go take the bus to front street & get your passport stamped there. Closed on the weekends. Commissioners... More
