While technically not in the Caribbean, Bermuda is a British territory warmed by the gulf stream. The island is shaped like a barbed fish hook.
Where You're Docked
Small cruise ships may dock at the capital of Hamilton or the town of St George. Larger ships dock at King's Wharf in Dockyards, the old naval dockyards, located at the tip of the hook.
Money and Tipping
Bermuda has an excellent system of buses and ferries. If you're in Dockyards, extra buses are usually provided when a large ship is in to take you to Horseshoe Bay and there should be extra sailings to Hamilton on the ferry. Private operators may also run buses to Horseshoe Bay. There should be a kiosk set up the pier to buy bus/ferry tokens or day passes. Prices are $3 for the bus ($2.50 using token), $4.50 for the ferry, and $12 (Nov 2011) for a day pass (good for ferry and bus). You can find the bus and ferry schedules and maps here. http://www.gov.bm
A good itinerary is to take the bus to Horseshoe Bay first. Next, catch the bus to Hamilton and return to Dockyards by ferry.
