Cruise ports: Royal Naval Dockyard Bermuda

If you are taking a cruise to Bermuda, chances are you will be docked at the Royal Naval Dockyard unless you are on a smaller ship. We have been docked at the Royal Naval Dockyard twice and in Hamilton twice. Two wharfs hold cruise ships, King's Wharf and Heritage Wharf. Even if you are docking in St. George or Hamilton, the Royal Naval Dockyard is just a short ferry ride away. Why do you want to visit  Here are a few reasons. 


Most people come to Naval Dockyard for shopping. Bermuda is known for its rum cake, wonderful jelly, local crafts, fashion and delicious smelling perfumes. Jewelry is also a popular item to shop for here. You will find lots of unique items to bring home as well as lots of gourmet food items. 

National Museum of Bermuda

Located in former military buildings and the Commissioner's House you will learn about the 500-year history of the island of Bermuda. You can also visit Dolphin Quest which is part of the museum and here you can enjoy interacting with dolphins up close and personal. 

Dockyard Glassworks Hot Glass Studio and Gallery

If you have ever wanted to see glass blown, this will be your chance. You can also buy some of their beautiful creations. 


Dining is a popular pastime at Royal Naval Dockyard. You will be able to dine on local favorites as well as international cuisine. 

A free shuttle train travels around the dockyard and you can get on and off as often as you like. 

If you are visiting Bermuda, chances are you will want to spend at least a few hours enjoying all that the Royal Naval Dockyard has to offer.
