King's Wharf
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We were several hours late arriving in Bermuda, due to a combination of diverting around Navy exercises on our way and adverse winds and currents. Docking at Kings Wharf is a bit of a pain, as it requires either a ferry or bus ride to get to the main town of Hamilton. A transit pass ($20 for 2 days) is useful and a scenic way to see the island. I had only a short time in Hamilton, while Sunday I attended a local church service, walked on a section of the island's rail trail, and found the National Museum at Kings Wharf a good value. I had booked a nighttime glass bottom boat tour, but it was cancelled, presumably due to high winds.

Boston
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
What a wonderful city. I had booked a tour of Lexington and Concord, but cancelled when I discovered my brother from Iowa was in town for a Harvard reunion. Boston has an extensive mass transit system, with a stop very close to the port. The area is served by the "Silver line", a bus line out near the pier which goes underground and connects with the regular subway lines near South Station. A day pass on the MTA is a value at $9.

Newport
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Our one tender port, Newport is a former playground of the super rich, a historic town, and a yacht racing mecca. A trolley line runs from near the tender stop to the "cottages", summer homes which would be considered castles, rather than cottages in most cultures.
