Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We enjoyed our 3 days in Bermuda very much. We ported at King's Wharf. Easy on and off of the ship. There was a tourist booth right on the pier where we bought a 2 day combination bus/ferry pass for $25 each. We could ride the bus or ferry as much as we wanted, and we did. We loved the history in St. George's and the smaller shops. Tobacco Bay was small but great! It is a very walkable town if you are in good shape. We took the ferry to St. George's and then the bus to Hamilton the first day, then the ferry back to King's Wharf. The second day we took the ferry to Hamilton and then the bus back to King's Wharf so we could get off at Horseshoe Bay, back on a bus, off at the Lighthouse, back on a bus, and then on to the ship. The buses and ferries were very clean and up to date, and the people were very friendly. Our only adventure was when the bus driver let us off to visit the lighthouse. When we were done, 6 of us waited in the same spot for the next bus. Two buses drove past us, finally an off duty bus stopped to tell us that it wasn't a bus stop where we were standing! We needed to be further down the hill. As we started walking to where he had indicated, a bus drove by and stopped at that bus stop. So here we were, all running madly for the bus. My husband (a retired Marine) is yelling "stop that bus! ". The driver was not happy, but she waited for us all. Then we had the "ride from hell" back to the ship. We all had to stand while she drove very fast, one handed, around the curves, back to the ship. I'm sure the pubs on the island are for the people who survived the bus rides. The last day we stayed in the King's Wharf area and checked out that area. Nice shops and restaurants.
