Cruise port: King's Wharf, Bermuda

King's Wharf, Bermuda: is the current port for the larger cruise ships. On the Western shore of Bermuda, there are a lot of coral reefs which prevent direct access to the port. The cruise ships must actually go north-east of the island to pick up the channel to King's Wharf.

Bermuda is a lonely island, some 600 miles from the United States, and it takes ships at least a day and a half to get there from New York City. This far out into the Atlantic, the sea can get rough at times, so expect less than smooth sailing.

Bermuda is a colony of England, and as such, all of the mannerisms, customs, and even driving on the wong side of the road exist here.

Bermuda is quite a deparure from the typical Caribbean island you may be used to visiting. While Bermuda has it's share of crime like any other country, it is much safer than the typical Caribbean island. About the only thing you need to worry about is theft of any items you leave unattended at a beach.



Getting around Bermuda is very easy. Their public transportation system; both ferry and bus is exceedingly easy. And inexpensive. As many cruise ships dock for several days in Bermuda, it offers a very relaxed way to visit the island as you don't have to worry about rushing back to the ship for departure.

It is usually very easy to pick out Bermudains from tourists; the "Bermuda Shorts" garb for the men is quite common - however, the shorts are always accompanied by knee length socks. In contrast, none of the tourists wear long socks with their Bermuda shorts. And typically, the louder or mis-matched the short and shirt color, the better. It was fairly common to see a man with a green dress shirt and tie with a pair of pink shorts.
