Through repeated bouts of wind and rain, we’ve finally arrived in King’s Wharf, Bermuda. Tropical Storm Ophelia is history, and to the relief Norwegian Dawn’s passengers, the air is warm and the sky blue. As we approached the island, hundreds of passengers gathered on the sundeck to watch the ship dock, which seemed quite a maneuver to my virgin eyes. Carnival Miracle is also in Bermuda today, and at one point, I wasn’t quite sure how we would nose our way into the dockyard without nudging her. But of course, these folks know exactly what they’re doing. Now that we’re safely in port, it’s time to gear up for a beach day. There’s only one decision left: Horseshoe Bay or Elbow Beach? Hopefully, I won’t get lost on my way off the ship!
