Came in on a cruise ship and found the Dockyards to be a great base from which to enjoy our three-day island adventure. Great connections to any venue on the island.

We spent a late afternoon and evening here. The dockyard is super clean and safe. It was quite lovely compared to a lot if port areas. I was very impressed. You can catch a ferry from here in easy walking distance from cruise ships to Hamilton or St. George. Most all boat excursions originate from here as well as taxis,... More

This is a great place to go shopping if you are visiting Bermuda. We took the ferry from Hamilton and found it to be a very enjoyable trip. There are many restaurants, pubs, and shops to visit while you're here and it is definitely worth a few hours of your time.

The Royal Naval Dockyard was where my cruise ship docked, and where my company and I spent our mornings and downtime. Convenient post boxes, a pharmacy, plenty of restaurants, and roaming wild chickens. I had fun shopping at the Clocktower Mall and visiting the rum-cake shop. It was certainly hot but there are palm trees and benches for that.

Interesting area of partially developed buildings and empty ruins. Still active boat yard areas, aka gas smells, trash etc. wonderful old stone buildings some redone. Ferry goes out of here. America cup will be hosted in 2017, guessing more will be done. Museum is great! Highly recommend.

You only need a few hours here but gets you off the beach and walking around. Beware of cruise ships, it's very busy when they are in..

The Royal Naval Dockyard is many things. It is the end of the line for cruise ships to dock for several days. Passengers use the ship as their "hotel" while sightseeing this area and the island of Bermuda. It a small mall attraction with stores and booths within selling souvenirs, art, local artists' creations both cheap and expensive. There are... More

Great place to try a water sport, boat ride/evening sunset cruise or day time fort exploring. But beware it's a busy place when cruise ships come in. Not a place for evening dining or shopping. Most things close after 5pm.
