King's Wharf Royal Naval Dockyard Excursion Reviews
did a little shopping. ok
The Royal Naval dockyard is nothing more than a fortress turned retail. A good spot for souvenir shopping, but make sure you read labels if you are looking for authentic made in Bermuda. There is some history markings that tell the story of the dockyard, but I was rather disappointed with this as it was mainly shopping. We did eat at a restaurant that was Something & Onion. They served mainly British pub fare but they do brew their own beer. They have a nice IPA and English Strong Ale on tap but the food is expensive (but that is common for Bermuda).
Bermuda is a wonderful island. The tour guides are always friendly. Dockyard has a number of shops and restaurants now - much better than in past years. Child friendly and easily walkable. Loads of history all around you. Don't forget to taste the rum cakes and watch the glass blowing!
We docked in the Royal Naval Dockyard, at Heritage Wharf, adjacent to King's Wharf. Bermuda, as it was last year, was beautiful. We were there from Sunday morning to Tuesday late afternoon. On Sunday, we did a Glass-bottomed Boat Tour of the island. That was pretty fun, getting to see to island's coral system and fish. Monday, we went to Horseshoe Beach, the most acclaimed beach in Bermuda. We got there via a taxi, Psalm's Mini Bus Service. We tipped him extra to then come back and take us to Hamilton, where we wanted to spend the night. He completely stuck us up, and ditched us. DO NOT TAKE THIS TAXI SERVICE!!!!!! He was the lone bad spot during our three days on the island. Use anyone else for a taxi service, there were boatloads of them by the ship (Pun intended.) On Monday night, we went into Hamilton to have dinner. We ate at the Pickled Onion Bar and Grill, which was very good. On Tuesday, we stayed local and did a very challenging mini golf course right in the Dockyard. Also, we had the Dockyard to ourselves, as there were no other ships in port over that three day span (the Grandeur of the Seas was supposed to dock adjacent to us at King's Wharf, but the ship was still under repair from it's fire back in May.) Heritage Wharf, where we docked, was still under renovation as officials continued to extend the wharf to comfortably berth the brand new Norwegian Breakaway
