Hamilton is the island/colony capital. We have both been to Bermuda three times in the past 30 years. There has been substantial commercial growth, office buildings housing offshore financial operations. It's easy to get around the island, particularly with the ferries. The buses are comfortable, but the volume of traffic on the roads has increased dramatically even during non-rush hours. The Wednesday evening street fair was entertaining, however we had a late dinner that evening and we only able to catch the waning minutes of the fair. Read Less

Because of the impending Igor, the boat was not allowed to dock in St. George. A tender came out to get those going on to excursions in St. George, by the original schedule... the rest of us went to Hamilton. It was very nice in Hamilton. ... Read More
Because of the impending Igor, the boat was not allowed to dock in St. George. A tender came out to get those going on to excursions in St. George, by the original schedule... the rest of us went to Hamilton. It was very nice in Hamilton. We rented mopeds for 3 days to get around the island and had fun doing this. It was easy to get on and off ship when ever we wanted. Read Less

Hamilton is our favorite port to dock while in Bermuda. We do all our shopping here. Cruise docks right along front street , cross the street to all the shops. 1 block up is a beautiful Cathedral we love to vist in Bermuda. Bus depot a few blocks away and ferries a very short walk from the ship. Lots of restaurants and bars for those interested . Hamilton has it all. Read Less

Very nice on Front Street. Visit the Methodist Cathedral and Fort Hamilton on your last day in town. Short walks to both nice sites.

Loved being in Hamilton for multiple days. By far better to dock in Hamilton then the dockyards where NCL and Celebrity dock. So convenient!

Mostly a shopping port for the ladies, but the Anglican Cathedral of The Most Holy Trinity is well worth a visit and the lady inside knows the church's history extremely well. Scenic views around Hamilton are beautiful.

Hamilton was a cute little island town. The Veendam docks right in downtown Hamilton, with easy access to ferries and buses to the beaches. Do not get a taxi - take the bus. The 10 & 11 go from St. George to Hamilton, the 7 takes you to the pink beaches - Horseshoe, Elbow, etc, and the 1 takes you to Tucker Town. The ferry to the Dockyards is literally a 2 minute walk from the ship. Hamilton is a nice hub to start from, but inevitably you'll go outside for beaches, golf, etc. Read Less

Take a taxi to Horseshoe Bay and enjoy the wonderful views along the way. The beach does get crowded but it is large enough to accommodate all. Skip the Harbor Night festival on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, Cruise Critic hasn't updated their port list, because large ships visiting Bermuda are docked at the Royal Navy Dockyard, not Hamilton or St. George's. So I'll include this under Hamilton. The dockyard is quite distant from the rest of the island. By far, the best way to travel from the dockyard to Hamilton, and especially St. George's, is by Ferry. A taxi ride to Hamilton will cost almost $50 with tip and takes about 30 minutes. Buy a 2 or 3 day transportation pass and get unlimited ferry and bus service. There are special buses taking people directly from the ship to Horseshoe Beach, which saves time and money. Don't book shore excursions through the cruise line. Instead, visit the tour booth at the dockyard. Taxis are a great way to see the island and cost $40 an hour for sightseeing (1-4 people)- much better than being crowded on a tour bus (which can't go to some parts of the island due to size limitations). Few ships visit St. George's anymore (Veendaam currently does). Evidently, the Bermudian government wants the cruise lines to use their ferries to tender passengers into St. George's and the cruise lines want to use their lifeboats. So we get an extra day at sea instead of another day in Bermuda because the two parties can't agree. Disappointing- I'd rather be in Bermuda than at sea! Read Less

Docked right in downtown Hamilton, Bermuda. Very convenient. Took public buses everywhere since they go everywhere you would want to go. No need to take any guided tours unless you want to go out on a boat for some water activities. We went to Horseshoe Bay which was GORGEOUS and deserves its reputation (and I'm not even a beach person!) For snorkeling: Tobacco Bay seems overrated, but it was cloudy when were were there. We didn't see anything. Snorkel Park at Dockyard was okay, but they've imposed a $5 entry fee now. you need to go out the protected swimming area to see any fish and live coral. Church Bay - EXCELLENT!! Fort St. Catherine was interesting for $11. St. George has charming streets but was a bit disappointing to me. Kinda boring. Bermuda is not a place for good shopping, so don't even hope for anything. Nothing to buy or eat and everything is extremely expensive. Read Less

Our actual port of call in Bermuda was the Dockyard. It's a nice place to walk around after arriving. There is a nice Fort to visit, and some shopping & restaurants. There is a swim with the dolphins place, and a snorkel beach. You can also rent mopeds if you dare. We did not do any shore excursions offered through NCL. We went out on our own. We took a ferry to Hamilton the next day and visited another Fort, walked around town, and had lunch at a place that seemed to be a local sandwich place (not a tourist trap). We took a bus back to Dockyard, but got off at Fort Scaur along the way. We walked a few miles along the Bermuda rail trail before catching another bus to the Dockyard. On day three took a bus to Horseshoe Bay. The water temperature was fine for early June, and the beach had plenty of room for the tourists to spread out. Bermudians seem to treat the tourists nicely. One of our bus drivers was Mrs. Johnston. She was very friendly and helpful to the tourists. Read Less

Hamilton was nice. The Wednesday is nice, but kind of small. It is a 20 minute ferry ride from Kings Wharf.

Bermuda is so beautiful and elegant. Hamilton is a lovely, quiet, civilized, British type of city. Shops close early at 5 sharp. Beaches such a Horseshoe Bay are a must see..esp the coves adjacent to the main beach. The Naval Dockyard is fun too with glass blowers, rum factory and lots of shops and trollys going around - thats where we docked. Bermuda is a very pretty island but kind of sleepy - not a Caribbean feel..better for golfers and bridge players. Read Less
