The dockyard is the home-base for the ship. It is safe. They have a gate that is locked at night and security people on staff. There were a few people pan-handling during the day but overall there isn't much of that anywhere on the island. There is a pharmacy at the dockyard that has a small pastry counter with aeesome Johnny Dogs (Johnny bread wrapped around a hotdog) and donuts, pastry and muffins. We brought NCL water bottles and refilled them with spring water we bought and we were allowed to keep them. There are restaurants at the dockyard that are a little pricey but good. We didn't do Dolphin Quest but that is housed at the Dockyard. There is the clock tower mall which had some upscale jewelry and clothing shops. There is a small beach (Snorkel Park) that has a charge to enter. It has water sports equipment and a few bars. We went in at about dusk and walked around (no charge) and we noticed there was a lot of sharp glass on the beach, not polished glass like at the glass beach down the coast. I picked up several pieces of sharp glass. My suggestion if you plan to go to this beach is make sure you and your children have water shoes on at all times. Read Less

This was a nice overview of the west end of Bermuda.
Sail Date: October 2018
This was a nice overview of the west end of Bermuda. It was nice slow view of the area. If you are younger or have people without walking issues you can see most of this on your own. But the commentary was pleasant

We took a Segway tour of mainly the Naval Dockyard but we also ventured out to the glass beach and a little further out. It was a wonderful way to explore the island, we were able to explore more than we would have if we had done a normal bus/coach tour. Our tour guide was very informative and knew a lot about the history of the island. Would highly recommend! Read Less
