Cruise to St. George Island, Bermuda

St. George Island is Bermuda's former capital and the oldest settlement in the new world. In the old town, there are colonial lanes and alleys with quirky names like Featherbed Lane, Barber's Alley, Old Maid's Lane and Printer's Alley. The town is also known for its well-preserved historic buildings, like St. Peter's Church and the storied Bridge House in King's Square. These gems were built in 1707, served as the home of governors, privateers and even a ghost or two. And while British colonial architecture dots the island, beaches like Tobacco Bay and St. Catherine's provide a tropical touch.
