It depends on what time the ship would be departing the port. Guests would be required to be back onboard at least 1 hour to the departure.

The hours will be posted in your Freestyle Daily newsletter, there will be announcements made, and also there will be signage as you disembark the ship what time you need to be back on board.

In case of Bermuda cruises, the ship docks at the port for 3 days. You can disembark and embark the ship any time of the day. You have to back on the ship at least 1 hours before sail time on the last day.
At all other destinations where the ship docks in the morning and leaves in the evening, you have to be back on the ship 1 hour before sail time.

You can go ashore shortly after the ship arrives in port on Wednesday and they clear customs, and you can come and go as you please until the ship sails on Friday. I don't believe they "lock up" the ship at night. We had a pier-facing room on our last trip and saw people returning as late as 1am before we turned in.

They'll announce each morning when the ship has been cleared and you can disembark. All aboard time will also be announced, and is usually one hour prior to the scheduled departure time.

Beaches?

How far are the beaches from the pier in Bermuda?

Also, which beaches are best to go to?

answer 1
My favorite beach is Elbow Beach. You would have to use the public access road past the Elbow Beach resort. The most popular is probably Horseshoe Bay. If you like waves, they are better at Elbow but no lifeguards. If you're renting mopeds you can check out many beautiful beaches along the south shore. Just take a ride down some of the access roads and explore. One morning I sat alone at a south shore beach that did have so much as a footprint there. It was very secluded and it was pristine. Mopeds are best way to go. Bus system in Bermuda is quite good also. Bus stops indicated by blue & pink poles. If the top is pink bus is going toward Hamilton & blue tops means going away from Hamilton. Cabs are a little pricey but most drivers are happy to answer questions so you can also learn something about the island with most drivers.

As far as distance, depends on which pier as there are 3 cruise piers in Bermuda. Of the beaches mentioned Elbow is closest to Hamilton. (about 10 minutes) Horseshore Bay would be closest to Dockyard. Both of them are too far from St. George. I haven't spent much time on that end of the island.

Snorkel Park Beach at the Dockyard is the only beach within walking distance. All others are primarily on the South Shore at least 10 miles away. You can get a bus or taxi from the Dockyard to Horseshoe Bay Beach which has changing facilities, snack bar, beach umbrella rentals, etc. It's one of the best beaches on the island. Bus/Ferry day passes can be purchased at the Dockyard.

The best beaches are Elbow Beach, Chaplin Bay, Horseshoe Bay are some of the best beaches. All of them are accessible using the local buses. I believe it is route # 7 (check on it). You can buy multi-day bus pass or single ride tokens.
Snorkel park beach is within walking distance of the beach but there is a small charge to use the beach and IMHO, it's not the best beach around.

Don't even bother bringing water. We did based on the answers to this question and it was a waste. There is plenty of water available on the ship, as well as iced tea and lemonade. All free.

This should not be a problem as long as they are factory sealed. You may be asked to take them out to verify at security. I had some quart iced tea bottles in my checked baggage that got flagged and I had to open my luggage on the ship. This is intended to deter bringing aboard alcohol.

All staterooms have mini fridges, but they do not store ice; chat with your stateroom attendant and make him/her aware of your needs and they will gladly provide.
Some cruiselines automatically provide ice twice a day, some will do it upon request.
Simply make your needs known and they will do their best to comply.
Hope this helps.

The stateroom has a min-fridge but not an ice maker. However, there is an ice bucket and your cabin steward will fill it with ice in the morning and again in the evening. If you require additional ice, you can always call room service for it.

All staterooms have a mini-fridge stocked like a for fee mini bar like hotels and the room steward typically fills the ice bucket in the stateroom daily. Talk to your room steward if you would like to have the mini-fridge contents removed and additional ice if needed. If he/she does a good job I suggest an extra tip as it's not part of their daily job.
