  1. I'm not sure why you need to be back on the ship by 4 if the ship doesn't leave until 6. Being back on board by 5 will be fine. I'm assuming you're on the 10:30 excursion to Blue Lagoon? If so, you can catch the 2 o'clock ferry back, which would give you a good 3 hours to enjoy the island and still have time afterwards to shop at the pier.
  2. I think it would be difficult to do both. But if you do decide to do both, do Atlantis in the morning and then the city tour as lab_love123 suggested. The traffic getting back from Atlantis can be bad in the afternoon while the city tour probably ends nearer to the port. You didn't say where the city tour pick-up and drop-off is.
  3. What you said was "We were at Disney for a hurricane and I HIGHLY recommend it". Maybe I completely misunderstood what you were trying to say but it sounded like you thought going through a hurricane was fun. They are not fun for the people who lose property, lose electricity for days or weeks, have to evacuate, etc. And I disagree with Disney's unofficial statement that the weather is beautiful with low humidity after hurricanes/tropical storms. Having gone through a few tropical storms, I can say from my experience that the humidity was horrible and there can be tornadoes due to the atmosphere being stirred up. I understand that Disney is just trying to soothe people's nerves about vacationing during hurricane season. They are just protecting themselves. But anyway, I apologize if I misunderstood what you were intending to say. Now back to Bermuda. It's looking hopeful that the thing will fizzle out before it gets there, which is good for everyone. Fingers crossed!
  4. Ask the people in the Florida Panhandle who are still living in tents 9 months after Hurricane Michael if they recommend going through a hurricane. Kind of a thoughtless comment. Hurricanes aren't amusement park rides.
  5. Thanks for the detailed instructions! I already know we'll be planning a return trip.
  6. You can keep an eye on things on the National Hurricane Center's website: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=5 We'll be there on the 27th/28th so I've been watching it too. Should be gone by the time we get there. I hope it doesn't mess up your weather too much!
  7. Here's this morning's report: ZCZC MIATWOAT ALL TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM Special Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 105 AM EDT Sun May 19 2019 For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: 1. An area of low pressure is expected to form within a region of disturbed weather located several hundred miles southwest of Bermuda during the next couple of days. This system could gradually develop into a tropical or subtropical cyclone while it moves northward or northeastward through Tuesday. Environmental conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for further development by the middle of the week. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be issued by 2 PM EDT Sunday, or sooner if conditions warrant. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
  8. Here's some information about the cathedral: https://www.bermuda-attractions.com/bermuda2_00007d.htm
  9. That is a good question. I guess my definition of a real one is one that was built for someone's garden and has some historical significance as opposed to one that was built more recently just for photo-ops.
  10. I agree. He'll customize to your interests. I asked for smallest drawbridge, Fort Scaur, Gibb's Hill Lighthouse (with time to climb it), Horseshoe Bay Beach or another good beach spot for taking pictures, and the Cathedral in Hamilton. I told him we liked history and scenery and taking pictures. I'm sure he'll come up with a great plan from there.
  11. I knew about that one but it looks so new I thought it was more of a tourist attraction than a "real" moon gate. Any idea how long it's been there? I don't mind seeing more than one.
  12. Sounds great. Our stay is way too short so I'm glad I'll be able to see at least one moon gate.
  13. We plan to take the ferry from the Dockyards to Hamilton and from there catch a taxi to the Crystal Caves. Where in relation to the ferry terminal is the taxi stand? Also, I think I read that there is a moon gate at the Par le Ville entrance to the Queen Elizabeth Park. Is that correct? If so, it looks like a very short walk and I'd love to stop there and get some pictures before going to the caves.
  14. Yes, you can but it's much quicker (and the same price) to take a regular taxi. You'll probably share a tax van with people doing to Atlantis.
  15. Yeah, I've heard a couple of people mention that urban legend recently.
