Recap of what to do in Bermuda.
I guess I can start this day by writing about my overall opinion of Bermuda. What can I say about Bermuda other than it is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ISLAND YET! There is so much to do in Bermuda, that I could myself coming back soon. Everything about Bermuda is great, and the locals are super polite. You will never experience pushy sales people anywhere in the island. Even the children are extremely polite, I find that hard to find now in most societies.
The ocean! Oh my that ocean… It is just about the most beautiful blue ocean my eyes have ever seen. That alone is something to do in Bermuda that would keep me coming over and over again. Snorkeling was just ok, and the water was freezing (must get better in summer), but over it was just stunning!
There is just so much to do in Bermuda, 3 days are not enough. Now I can see why people go to Bermuda year after year and never get bored of it. I think I could go there 3 more times, before I say I had enough and like to try something else.
One more thing to talk about was my hesitation to be docked for 3 days instead of being on the move every night. I really hated the idea of being docked, and I kept wondering if there were enough things to do in Bermuda to keep me occupied for 3 days. But let me tell you something, I like it. You can come and go as you please, at any time of the day or night. It felt very nice to get off the ship to go use the internet and stretch our legs, and it was also very nice to be able to take pictures of the ship at night.
On a final note for those who are hesitant of doing the Bermuda itinerary, all I can say is, try it. You might just be very surprised at how much you will like it. We can’t wait for the next time that we are able to go to Bermuda. I hope that this short guide helped you figured out what to do in Bermuda, when you finally get there. I suggest you give the gorgeous Bermuda Island a try!
