Hamilton
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Bermuda was very beautiful, and very expensive. We took private island tours on the second and third day. They cost $40 and hour (three hours minimum for a minivan/taxi) there were four of us so we split the cost. Our guide was great. One day we went west to the Dock yard, Gibbs lighthouse, the worlds smallest draw bridge, and a few of the beaches and hotels. The next day we went east to the crystal caves, St. Georges where we saw the dunking of the wench, and the oldest church on the island, we also went to elbow bay and Fort St. Catherine.

Wednesday night was the Harbor Nights festival on front street in Hamilton, just off the ship. There were local artists, dancers, music and food. This takes place every Wednesday night during the spring and summer. Don't miss it. The Bermudian people are very polite and helpful. There are lots of free WiFi spots on the island. The public library in Hamilton will let you use their computers free for 15 minutes a day. They WiFi there was spotty. There is a cafe in Hamilton called "The Spot" the WiFi is free, (no password needed) and you can pick it up by sitting outside the cafe. The speed was very fast. Most of the Pubs and restaurants also offer free WiFi if you buy something.
