Default What to do with 9 hours in Bermuda?

We're sailing Spirit on May 19th out of New York and our first stop is in Bermuda at King's Wharf, from 8:00 to 5:00. At most ports, we either seek out a nice beach or do some shopping, depending on the port. We'll also be stopping in St Thomas and Tortola. Tortola is definately a beach day and St Thomas might be some shopping and some beach time. We've been to both of these ports several times and pretty much know our way around.

But, we're not really sure what to do in Bermuda. We're not real big on doing the ship's excursions (which there are none available on the NCL website) and aren't really into the touristy stuff. I'm thinking it might be a little cool for a beach day in Bermuda in May. So, I guess my question is, what's the shopping scene in Bermuda like? Prices? I've heard that Bermuda is expensive? Is there anything around the port, or should we plan to ferry over to Hamilton? Since we've never been to Bermuda, we're looking for some suggestions.

Thanks, Tim

I was in Bermuda this past summer- We docked in Hamilton and St George. They have an amazing bus system, and you would be able to take a bus to the beach of your choice. I highly reccommend Jobsons Cove, as it is very secluded and relaxing (a perfect way to spend your first day in port).

As for shopping, Bermuda is pretty expensive. That is because everything has to be imported there. The shops near the dock had prices and items similiar to the cruise ship.

Docking at King's Warf puts you in a great spot for sightseeing. THere is an old British Fort you can tour, snorkel park, swimming with dolphins, crafts and glass blowing, restaurants...... all right off the ship. You can do all of that without booking an excursion. The Bermuda ferry system is also a wonderful way to get around and would take you to Hamilton and St. George's right from King's Warf. Hamilton is the "downtown" area with shopping and St. George's is very historical and quaint, good to walk around and has nearby beaches.
