The cruise ships port of call shopping experience. All kinds of souvenir shops, museums and restaurants to enjoy. Connecting ferries, to Hamilton and St. George along with cruise ship excursions. Interesting history of the island.

The Royal Dockyard is a must see in Bermuda. However—DO NOT go when the cruise ships are in. If you want to visit little shops bumping into people and getting annoyed-go then. When there are no ships in go and visit the rum cake factory,...More

The dockyards are a very interesting place. So much to see and do. You can rent scooters there to tour the island (not necessarily recommended). The pink bus is a must. It's transportation and an amusement ride at the same time. LOL... loved it...

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.
