When you first arrive on the cruise ship you see so much history. Leave the ship and you are very close to shopping and dining. While you may not be in the center of Bermuda, it is still easy to get around, Busses are a...More

I enjoyed visiting the Royal Naval Yard. This former military fortress has been converted to a shopping, restaurant destination and cruise port. There are some really good pubs here and a couple of artisan craft studios that are worth a visit.

A range of shops to explore. Would like to see more local vendors around dockyard make it a little better with snow cones, tattoos, children related stalls. Local vendors definitely needed. A bit of a lack of atmosphere considering 2 mega cruise ships dock here.

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?
