Docking in Hamilton, Bermuda
Location! Location! Location!
How convenient is this, docking in the country's capital city?
Only cruise shops under 700 feet in length can dock at Hamilton, Bermuda’s capital city.It is the most convenient place to dock on the island because it is close to the midpoint. And many of the more famous attractions are located here.
Hamilton has 2 berths, the #1 Passenger Terminal and #5 & 6 Passenger Terminal. Both accommodate ships up to 700 feet, small vessels compared to most of the ships being built today.
The ships dock beside Front Street, located only
a brief walk from the numerous restaurants, clubs and pubs, the island’s main shopping district and almost all the city attractions.
Hamilton is perfect for discovering on foot, though you might also want to take one of the carriages through the streets for the fun of it.
