  1. No mobility issues for the adults, so maybe we can do it. About how long does it take to go up and down the hill, walking? Yes, we'll have a small umbrella stroller with us. Are the buses about 30 minutes apart? We'll be docked on a Monday (9AM Bermuda arrival) and Tuesday.
  2. I see...Thanks so much for the explanation! The variation in size is probably why I haven't been able to find a standard picture. I've been seeing everything from full size city buses to minivans in internet searches. As Charles mentioned, I've been seeing recent posts saying that the $2pp van is no longer there. We may end up doing the public bus, so thanks for those tips, especially the one about building in more time. We're from NYC, so used to public transport issues, but not used to the public transport issues of smaller towns. The buses are 30 minutes apart, right? Hmm. I'm thinking we'll have to get off the ship as early as possible, stay at the beach for a couple of hours, then head back before afternoon nap time. Thanks! Nice to hear from someone who's traveled to Horseshoe with a small kiddo. The shuttles really are the most convenient option for most people. It would be a no-brainer without a toddler so young. I'm leaning toward the public bus more and more - just concerned about that hill. Checked out the first few paragraphs in your blog link - love it already! Haha!
  3. We'll be bringing our 16 month old on the Anthem for her first cruise in a few weeks. The ship will be in Bermuda for two days, so we're thinking of taking a ferry and bus to the Aquarium/Zoo one day, and going to the baby beach at Horseshoe Bay the other day. It seems like options for Horseshoe Bay transport are taxi, # 7 bus or beach minibus shuttle. Has anyone taken the minibus shuttle with a child or infant? I've been trying to find pictures of the shuttles, with the thought that if they're just smaller versions of a public bus, a toddler/infant would be OK being carried. I don't think I would feel comfortable without a car seat if the shuttle was the size of a minivan, however. I asked over on the Family board, and the shuttles might be 15-seaters? We have a Cosco Scenera car seat that we could bring along, but we were hoping to avoid it (I found a car service with infant seats that we can use to/from the ship for departure and our return home). We also bought a car seat lock clip, just in case we do bring the car seat. The other option (which I'm leaning toward) is the #7 bus, but I heard that we would have to get up/down a hill to get to the beach, which wouldn't be ideal with a baby and all of our gear. There will be 3 adults, as my mom is joining us, so maybe we could do it? Has anyone taken the #7 bus to Horseshoe with an infant or toddler? Any tips for transport?
  4. I was planning on a ferry+bus combo for the aquarium. I have no issue taking the public bus at all, I was just concerned about the hill at the Horseshoe public bus stop more than anything. I can't tell how doable it would be for our group based off of other posts, since it's so different for everyone. 15 passengers sounds OK. Maybe I'll have to decide once there though. Thank you! Thanks! Appreciate it. I'll ask on the Bermuda board as well. I'll definitely return to this thread after we go, and let you know. I've searched around both on CC and TripAdvisor and still can't decide. I imagine it will just be one of those parental judgement calls made at the moment. Since we'll have 3 adults, we might just end up doing the public bus for sanity's/safety's sake. It might not be as difficult as I think it is. The car seat at the beach just doesn't sound fun. And I can picture sand falling out of it for months afterward. I think we're going to nix the taxi option. I'm also going to check on the Bermuda port-of-call board, as Essiesmom suggested. Good luck to you!
  5. Hi, First post, but I've been lurking for a while 🙂 We'll be bringing our 16 month old on the Anthem for her first cruise in a few weeks. The ship will be in Bermuda for two days, so we're thinking of taking a ferry to the Aquarium/Zoo one day, and going to the baby beach at Horseshoe Bay the other day. It seems like options for Horseshoe Bay transport are taxi, # 7 bus or beach minibus shuttle. Has anyone taken the minibus shuttle with a child or infant? Would a toddler or baby be safe sitting on an adult's lap or in a baby carrier? I've been trying to find pictures of the shuttles, with the thought that if they're just smaller versions of a public bus, a toddler/infant would be OK being carried. I don't think I would feel comfortable without a car seat if the shuttle was the size of a minivan, however. We have a Cosco Scenera car seat that we could bring along, but we were hoping to avoid it (I found a car service with infant seats that we can use to/from the ship for departure and our return home).

There will be 3 adults, as my mom is joining us, so maybe we could do it? Has anyone taken the #7 bus to Horseshoe with an infant or toddler? Is that our best option?
