As much as I love sea days, I was so looking forward to every port I had been so fortunate to visit this year while cruising. Sailing into King’s Wharf, Bermuda for the very first time with Disney Cruise Line- was certainly no exception! This was our balcony view at about 7:30am, just about there:
We had a bit of help guiding our way into the dock:
It was really exciting for me- have never been here before but have only heard incredible things. It was hard to tell because our view was of the sea and not the port- but according to our in stateroom television… we had arrived!
After a quick breakfast in Cabanas, we headed off the ship to find a cab to Horseshoe Bay Beach. No real plans today except a beach day. We did some research ahead of our arrival and headed straight to the vans- $7 per person, each way.
We were really fortunate to have a driver that taught us a bit a about the island as we made our way to the beach. Pointing things out like Somerset Bridge that connects Somerset Island with the mainland in the western parish of Sandys. Somerset Bridge is reputedly the smallest working drawbridge in the world.
It seemed like a very quick ride to the each, less than a half hour. It really was a picture perfect day- the weather was OUTSTANDING! We were able to rent loungers, umbrellas and even canopies to shield us from the sun. The water was crystal clear and the sand was a beautiful shade of pink!
We left the beach around 3:30pm as we had dinner at 5:45pm and needed to get ready. The island just looks so beautiful from even inside the ship.
Dinner tonight inside Animator’s Palate was outstanding as usual:
I started with one of my absolute favorites, Black Truffle Pasta Purseittes which are pasta purses filled with Truffle scented Cheese and coated with a delicate Champagne Sauce
Then moved onto the Baked Potato and Cheddar Cheese Soup with Bacon Bits and Chives:
For my main course, I ordered the Lemon-thyme Marinated Organic Chicken Breast with Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes, roasted Root Vegetables and Grain Mustard Jus:
Mike had the Ginger-Teriyaki dusted Angus Beef Tenderloin on Wasabi Mashed Potatoes with Bok Choy and a Tamarind-Barbecue Reduction:
I love watching the dining room transform during dinner:
Of course, seeing Mickey Mouse is always magical!
After the show it was time for dessert! Most of us indulged with the Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake with Whipped Cream and Raspberry Coulis:
Next up, after dinner, was 80’s Music Trivia inside O’Gill’s and WE WON!
Then a few of us decided to get of the ship, simply becuase we could. It was the first time I had ever overnighted in port during Disney Cruise Line vacation and I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see Bermuda at night.
We headed for a spot where the kids could play mini golf for a bit-
Heading “home” was just magical, the ship just sparkled at night:
Once we were back on board, the kids took off to D Lounge for an Animation Class, The Inside Out Game, and then Karaoke. The adults headed to Fathoms for the Majority Rules game show, Michael Harrison (comedian and ventriloquist) show, and then a Silent DJ Party- which was by far the HIT of the night!
We had such an amazing day and a busy one was scheduled for tomorrow… we have a catamaran booked for a few hours tomorrow morning before it is time to head back to NYC!
