Map of Kings Wharf & Dockyard Bermuda
The maps below should help you understand the location of Bermuda's Kings Wharf dock and the Royal Naval Dockyard, and how the whole port is laid out. The dockyard once used to be a British navy base and therefore known as the Royal Naval Dockyard.
The inset in the first map shows you where Bermuda is located with respect to the US east coast. The big red star on the first map shows the location of the dockyard in Bermuda. As you can see in the map, the dockyard is located at the western tip of Bermuda in Ireland Island (north) in Sandy's Parish. There are two berths at the dockyard here. Kings Wharf is the original berth (or the dock), Heritage Wharf is a latter addition and located next to Kings Wharf.

The second map below shows details of the Kings Wharf cruise pier and the Dockyard complex. Earlier Kings Wharf used to be the only berth where the cruise ships could dock. Now there is an additional berth called the Heritage Wharf created which is located right next to the Kings Wharf. So two large ships (each with capacity of over 3,000 passengers) can now dock here at the same time.
