We stayed on the South side of the island and it was not worth the trip over there. It is located by the cruise ship terminals. If you come in on one of them and don't have transportation to the better parts of the island, I'd suggest walking around. Otherwise, don't make a special trip for it. Just a few... More

It is where the cruise ships land so be prepared to be blitzed by 5000 plus people on the cruise ship NCL brings to port. There are usually 2 ships in a time.

We have been twice to the Navel Dockyard as there is so much to see. For history buffs it contains so much detail that you've more than likely never been aware of (at least we weren't). Take the day and enjoy yourself, you won't regret it!

The area is very old and looks it, parts are very run-down, but there are plenty of little shops and things to see. Spent the day wandering around and shopping. Keep in mind things are a priced reasonably for a tourist destination. Bought several things from several different shops, a bucket cap actually in my size (8), glass shop sold... More

We had a few days in Bermuda so we booked a Taxi Tour thru my Travel Agent who is very familiar with the Island. Arthur is who did our... More

I recently cruised to Bermuda & decided to check out the area surrounding the cruise port. I checked out the Bermuda rum cake company, the Dockyard Pharmacy & the Clocktower Mall. There were 2 cruise ships in port that day & the area surrounding the cruise port was very busy. Didn't purchase a lot at the shops, but seemed like... More

The changes in the dockyard in the past 15 years are amazing. Everytime that I visit, I find something else to do. This time I toured the commissioners home. It sits on a hill overlooking the dockyard. What a fabulous place. I also went to snorkel park. It is a small beach that is tucked away in a corner. Clean... More

RND is a great place that seems to be up and coming. Since this is where the cruises dock, they seem to be doing a lot for the area.

The Royal Naval Dockyard is one of the major attractions on Bermuda. It is an old navel station that has been converted into a tourist area. You can get there easily by bus or ferry. The ferry is my favorite way to go on a nice day and service is available from Hamilton and St George. It is also the... More
