One of the most beautiful countries you will
probably ever visit, Bermuda is a reasonable airplane flight from major cities
in the Eastern U.S. Or, you can book a cruise that sails from one of the
ports in the Middle Atlantic or Northeastern states. Bermuda is actually a
collection of more than 350 islands, with several of them key tourist spots.
Bermuda is a territory of the United Kingdom, with a governor who is appointed
by the Queen, and
is situated approximately 650 miles east of the North Carolina coast. If
there is only one takeaway that we could give you from our trips, it's this --
of all the places we've been, Bermuda is the one that we can honestly say far
surpasses any photographs of it that you will see.
There are two main cities in Bermuda -- Hamilton
and St. Georges. Each of these has a harbor, which can only accommodate
the smaller to medium size cruise ships. Large ships can dock at a
third port, King's Wharf, which was a former Royal Navy base.
Travel Tips for Bermuda visitors
Avoid the mopeds. Don't even think
of renting these, unless you are a very accomplished motorcycle rider.
The combination of an unfamiliar mode of transportation, traffic circles,
strange surroundings, and traffic that's on the wrong side of the road can
Do drink the water. It's safe.
The locals are friendly. Tourism is
one of the major sources of income for Bermuda, and they tolerate visitors

Cruise Tips for Bermuda
Shore excursions - book as many as you
can afford. This is a small country, but it's fairly spread out.
Let the tour operator drive you around.
Meals - if you're of the mind that food
is just food, then plan on eating as many of your meals as possible on the ship.
If you want to sample one or two meals, that's fine, but be ready for
"sticker shock," because restaurants in Bermuda are very expensive.
If at all possible, book a cruise on a
ship that docks in either Hamilton or St. Georges. That way,
you'll be able to simply walk ashore and into the sights. The
larger ships have to dock at King's Wharf, which is at the far end of
civilization and is a taxicab or bus
ride to everything. And that's a taxicab or bus ride every time
you want to go somewhere or do something.
Port side cabins give you views of the
town of St. Georges, the beautiful homes on the island on the other side
of the Hamilton bay, and the marina, fort and other attractions at
King's Wharf. Starboard side cabins give you views of downtown
Hamilton, the harbor at St. Georges, and a vista view of Bermuda when
docked at King's Wharf.
Do whatever you need to
do to visit one or two beaches while you are in Bermuda, even if you are
not into swimming. You will remember the experience.
