I went on a Norwegian cruise to Bermuda this past summer, also my first cruise. i loved it!!!
check out the cruise’s excursions. Many to do don’t involve the beach. We did one to the beach and one bike riding along the coast. The bike one got cancelled for rain, but point being, there are non beach options. The beaches there are absolutely beautiful though with super super clear water
The ship docks in the royal naval dockyard which is right beside a little mall, that’s in an old clocktower. Definitely not a big mall, but still nice. There’s a courtyard feel to the area, can walk around the old dockyard, yogurt shop (with wifi), and chickens running around! Not big enough to spend an entire day there.
Money isn’t an issue bc they take American money. They use US dollars and bermuda dollars interchangeably.
You can take a ferry right from the dockyard to Hamilton, which is the Capitol, and has a lot of shopping And sightseeing. It’s a few dollars, but definitely too far to walk. There is a huge bulletin board with the ferry schedule.
Its a beautiful small country. 20 miles long and 1 mile widE. Can see the ocean from everywhere.
There are scooters to rent , but I wouldn’t. They drive like nuts.
norwegian is nice and friendly and well organized. lots of food, room service, lots to do I was on the breakaway, and each ship has little things that are different Which ship are you on? I had never been on one and was very happy. From the organization at docking, to the room, the employees, the 24 hours of good food, the shows, the pool, the deck, there was plenty to do and it was very relaxing. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!!
