St. Georges Bermuda and Photos around the Norwegian Breakaway
Last but not least from our enjoyable cruise on the ship is our wanderings around St. Georges Bermuda and some random photos from areas of the ship. We spent the first day in Bermuda on the ship enjoying the water slides since most people were on shore, the second day we head to St. Georges and the third we just spent a few hours around dockyards. Frankly there’s not much to do there besides go to a small mall or eat at one of the restaurants there, so we sat around enjoyed the sun and breeze and picked up some water to take back on the ship. The photos below are from the second day.
In order to take the buses or ferries you can use tokens or passes. They have 1, 2 and 3 day passes available. Prices for them have gone up significantly since last year, so we opted for a two day pass and actually wound up wasting money since we didn’t use it on the last day. Honestly in future we’ll probably by tokens for when we need the ferry since we don’t spend all three days wandering the island anyway.
You can buy the passes at the tourist booth that’s right there as you get to the end of the pier. You can also get them in the little information shop that’s right in the center in the area where the ferries and buses stop.
We made our way to the unfinished cathedral, Tobacco bay and the surrounding area along with Fort Catherine, we stopped off for a bit to eat and then head back on the ferry. We walked about 2 miles total and it was nice to feel our legs stretch on land in the warm sun. I’ll be adding some more photos soon.
We had no firm plans that day but knew that we wanted to see the unfinished cathedral. It’s about 1/4 of a mile from where the Saturday ferry arrives.
Along the cute streets that wind through town we passed by this beautiful weathered door with a cork wreath and flowers in front of it. I could have stared at it for an hour.
Unfinished cathedral. I imagine that in the rain it’s hauntingly beautiful. You can no longer go inside due to architectural concerns,
but if you hop up onto one of the window sills you can get a good view of the inside.
In and around Tobacco Bay. The contrasting blues between the water and the sky is simply stunning!
Inside Wahoo restaurant. I had rice, and conch fritter as well as an alcoholic drink. The food was typical of Bermuda prices (read expensive) and was okay.
Not bad but not great.
At Fort Catherine. We didn’t go in, but I think that the entrance fee was about $7.00 per person.
I love the way Bermuda embraces color in their architecture.
This chandelier is stunning, I prefer it over the one on the Epic and that one is quite a beauty too.
A beer at Maltings. No Guinness on tap unfortunately. I think that DH chose a Heineken.
Going GLOW and 80’s (note the fingerless gloves) no one told me that those were two DIFFERENT parties! Personally I think that they should be combined, when one thinks of one they think of the other.
Yes somehow I convinced the Mr. that a glow necklace would be an “awesome” idea. He’s so patient and sweet.
Deepa! One of my two favorites Hostesses on the Breakaway I met her on the Jade twice. She’s such a sweetheart.
My other favorite is Leonara, we met on the Epic last year and were dancing buddies in Bliss.
