They've really improved the general area of King's Wharf since we were last there 17 years ago. Almost too touristy now. The glass factory with live demos is a nice touch. There were 2 ships in port when we were there and the ferry lines were long. But they got most of the people on when they came along. Snorkel Park gives you a taste of what a Bermuda beach looks like but if you don't go to Horseshoe or one of the other fantastic beaches you're missing out. My biggest problem, even on a nice day the water's too cold in early May.
The bar (Frog and Onion??) at King's Wharf had a Cinco de Mayo party for the ship's crews which some enjoyed a little too much. I know our Ass't Waiter Antoine (not his real name) REALLY enjoyed it.
The bus dropped us right outside the Breaker's and we got right in after buying tix at the gate. The individual head sets were great although anybody who didn't have them and talked alot during the tour was distracting. After a nice 45 minute tour of the opulence of the Vanderbilt's we found our way to the Cliff Walk which would have been nicer in better weather. I originally had intentions of walkig most of the 6+ miles of Cliff Walk but ended up only doing about 45 minutes. The next exit was over a mile and we had seen enough. We made our way back to the street and easily caught another bus. We might have had time for another mansion but it would have been pushing it and besides, we were on a mission to purchase a curling iron.
The lines back at the dock were a little long but moved well when a tender was available.
I would recommend seeing the mansions and Cliff Walk and hope you have better weather.
We mostly wandered around town on our own where a good map comes in handy. The one we ordered from the Bermuda website was adequate. Don't miss the unfinished church. On a sunny day it's quite photogenic. We were seriously considering the segues but it started to threaten rain so we just caught the #11 bus back to the ship. It really gave us a scenic ride back going by the airport, thru the big rock cut, stopping briefly at Hamilton and all the way back to King's Wharf. We stopped at one of the elementary schools along the way because the public buses are used as school buses at certain times of the the day. We picked up about a dozen kids and made a few extra stops on the way home. The kids were great.
