Most of the cruise ships dock in the Royal Naval Dockyard so everything in the area is severely overpriced. Despite this, it is still a very scenic and pleasant area to get lost in for a few hours.

Some great shops and restaurants in this friendly town! It's real easy to grab a ferry, bus, cab or rent a scooter to get to nearby locations.

Since this is where cruise ships tend to dock, there are a few things to do & see in the Dockyard. There are a few shops, restaurants, & fun activities like Snorkel Beach & a dolphin experience.

In Bermuda for two and a half days on our cruise. We had several opportunities to walk down the dock to the shops and restaurants in the area. Worth a couple hours of your time to explore and shop.

It is nice for a casual day of strolling around, checking out the museum & few shops, and eating (enjoying a band maybe). You can also participate in the dolphin experience.

We are on a cruise and docking for 3 days in Bermuda, is it worth renting a car and touring on our own?
