St. George's
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
St. George is a beautiful port to sail into and was a wonderful first taste of Bermuda. We chose to just wander that section of island on foot, and we stumbled upon Tobacco Bay, a gorgeous area that is a must-see. While walking, we were approached by two separate locals in cars asking us if we needed a ride into town. We turned down the first offer because we're unaccustomed to that sort of thing, but when it happened a second time, we realized that it must be fairly common there. We accepted a ride by a kindly older couple who told us what it was like living on the island. The experience was very sweet and we returned to the ship feeling like Bermuda is a very special island.

Hamilton is an excellent port and we felt very lucky to be on the only ship that docks there. It was amazing to have the experience of being on the island permanently, but eating and sleeping on the ship. In this way, we avoided the high prices of the island but got to enjoy all it had to offer, just a few steps away. We bought a 2-day bus pass and rode the entire loop. This enabled us to get birds'-eye views of many beaches and scope out areas we wanted to revisit. It really was an excellent first day at this port. The second day, we returned to Elbow Beach, which we had spotted on our bus run. It was exquisite, quiet, and lovely. One day, my husband and I rented a sailboat and spent 5 hours just sailing around the bay and out to where the other cruise ships dock at the Naval Dockyard. It was a truly unique experience for two people just starting out in sailing.
