Default Help!!! Does this sound right?

I'm amazed by how well you folks have your trip put together.

Any tips for us. Second cruise, first to bermuda. Traveling in mid-May on Carnival Legend. Arrive Dockyard 4:30 p.m. Thurs and Depart 2 p.m. Sat.

We'd like to get two beach trips in. Leaning toward going to Horseshoe on Friday, and one of the smaller beaches, hopefully closer to the dockyard, on Sat.

If you care to offer your advice, here are some random questions:

1.) What beach should we go to on our 1/2 day Saturday. From the few things I've seen & read, I'm leaning toward Chaplin beach, Church Beach, or Southbay (??) beach very near the dockyard. ANyone suggest one of those over the other, or another beach altogether?

2.) What should we expect to pay for a cab ride from Dockyard to Horseshoe?

3.) If we're scheduyled to leave Sat at 2 p.m., how late do we DARE stay at the beach if we want to be CERTAIN we are back on board by 1:15 p.m.

4.) We'll spend our first (and arraival) eveneing at the Dockyard. Any tips, thoughts, suggestion on good eating & drinking establishments? (EXTRA points for tips that include a sunset veiw from the bar!)

5.) Are we making a BIG mistake not taking the ferry over to Hamilton? If it's something we should REALLY do, we could do it after the trip to Horshoe Beach on Friday. (Keep in mind, I have a feeling we'll be cruising to Bermuda again...so we could always wait to see Hamilton and/or St. George then.)

Thanks a BUNCH for any tips you'd like to share.

Horseshoe Beach is a must -you will love it. Check and see if the buses run to the beach, i don't remember, the bus system in Bermuda is wonderful and cheaper than a taxi. I love any and all of the beaches in Southampton, pick one you won't go wrong. As for Hamilton its a nice place to walk around in and shop if you are looking for things like Irish linens, sweaters, perfumes,and china. Bermuda is one of the nicest, cleanest, un-touristy , relaxing islands.
