First, let me say we love the Pride, so that part gets s 5.
The island is very pretty and the beaches are beautiful (except they looked just like stateside beaches, I didn't see any pink!). But if 2 of your 3 days are on and off rain, then unless you are into $90 Bermuda shorts and $200 shirts or drinking yourself into a stupor, there isn't very much to do. Now that isn't Carnival's fault or Bermuda's fault, we booked during hurricane season! We went to Hamilton and St. Georges, and had a difficult time even finding souvenir t-shirts. The island is very expensive and upscale. Public transportation (buses and ferries) are efficient and reasonably priced and the people that we met and dealt with were extremely nice and showed great pride in their homeland.
From what we had read before the cruise we believed that there were many things to see within easy walking distance. Well, for a 65 and 70 year old couple, believe me this wasn't true. The beaches are, of course, at sea level and the roadways are not. We took an excursion to Horseshoe Bay that took us right to the beach. If we had taken a bus, we would have never made the hike back up the hill to the roadway.
Overall,we enjoyed the cruise, are glad we got to see Bermuda for the first time, but we will not go out of our way to go back. If you are a person who enjoys the beach, scuba diving, longwalks, upscale shopping and drinking this could be the cruise of a life time for you (if the weather is good).

Take an extension cord, octopus or spider plug, and a multi charging port for all your electronics. Can't emphasize this enough.
