In 2013, we booked a short cruise to Bermuda for my birthday. The cruise ship that I boarded on was the Explorer Of The Seas by Royal Caribbean Cruises.
This ship had an ice rink where we could do some free skating and watch shows on rice! There was a rollerblading area on the outside too!
We had to take a speedboat to reach the island. Then, we were free to roam around the island the whole day.
Interesting fact, I saw many bus stops, but no buses anywhere! Hmmm….
I wandered into a local bookstore and bought a children’s book. The author was there to signed it too!
Getting hungry, I was determined to eat something at the Swizzle Inn….
The banyan tree below was one of biggest tree i saw on the island. These trees fascinated me as their roots could expand very far. This one was near the Crystal Caves.
“Crystal Cave is a cave in the British overseas territory of Bermuda. It is located in Hamilton Parish, close to Castle Harbour. The cave is approximately 500 m long, and 62 m deep. The lower 19-20 m of the cave are below water level.“— Wikipedia
“The striking Unfinished Church in St. George’s might make you think of a romantic ruin straight out of a fairy tale. But it was actually planned as a replacement for St. Peter’s in the mid-19th century. For one reason or another, the church was never completed. But what remains is positively breathtaking, with soaring stone arches, a grassy floor, and only Bermuda’s blue sky for a roof.“— GoToBermuda
Fort St. Catherine’s was a military fort from 1612 to the 20th century.
I just had to visit the ship’s Johnny Rockets. I like the 50’s decor!
Back then, all cruises required guests to dress up for a formal night. Many guests would visit the salon to get their hair and makeup done. I prefer to do my own makeup and hair…..
Well, that’s what I could recall from my Bermuda cruise!
