A May 2005 trip to Bermuda by MaggieG

Quote: Our round-trip Boston/Bermuda cruise included 4 days moored in downtown St. George, where we used the ship like a hotel. We had time to explore Bermuda at a relaxed pace. We used the bus and water taxi system with a couple of expensive taxi rides.

We used the voucher from the ship for $50 per person, which covered a delicious meal. The wines were extra and brought the total to more than the voucher, as we expected.

We had to choose from five to six appetizers and four to five main courses, plus salads and desserts. The appetizers were so appealing that I chose two of those, making one my main dish. The menu was continental with a Caribbean flair. Each dish we had was perfectly cooked, with prime quality.

Of all the wonderful dishes, our favorite was the mussels. We each ordered them as an appetizer and found them very tasty and uniquely flavored (I think with a bit of coconut milk). It was rich and wonderful.

The Swizzle Inn ("where you swizzle in and swagger out," though if you have too many pitchers of rum swizzles, you will probably stagger out) is a pub with an upstairs nonsmoking balcony, as well as a downstairs patio and pub.

We arrived in Bermuda on Tuesday morning. Our ship was berthed right in downtown St. George – and we bought a 3-day bus/water taxi pass ($23 each) to get around. The bus system is excellent and runs frequently. Pink poles indicate bus stops for buses going toward Hamilton, and blue poles are "outbound," or away from Hamilton. All of the drivers we encountered were very helpful in directing us to whichever number bus we needed and where to get it or transfer. (We had decided that mopeds were not the way for us to go, even before the ship announced that they advised against them due to so many accidents!) I didn’t realize how hilly Bermuda is! Even though the island is only 26 miles long, it takes ...Read More
