You can do a carriage ride as a part of the ship's tour. - This is NCL's excursion write-up:

Approximate Duration: 1 1/2 hours
This is an informative approximately 1 1/2-hour carriage sightseeing tour of the Old Town of St. George and its beautiful countryside. At the start of the tour you will be given a little history of Sir George Somers and the Deliverance and as you make your way through the Old Town, you will stop at Somers Garden. The tour then continues easterly providing a magnificent view of St. George Harbor. Further along, you will come upon an old Bermuda cottage, built in the 1780s. At this cottage there will be a detailed explanation on how the people of Bermuda catch the rainwater from the white rooftops. You will be able to get a wonderful view of the narrow channel that led ships into the beautiful St. George Harbor and nestled right next to the channel you will visit the very old but quaint, Gates Fort built in 1620. The tour continues on to the northern coastline passing Alexander Battery and stopping at Buildings Bay where the famous Deliverance was built. You will pass by a working Bermudian farm before taking in the marvelous scenery from Fort St. Catherine and its beach. As the tour winds down you will view the ruins of the Unfinished Church, travel through quaint narrow streets such as Governors? Alley and Printer's Alley and conclude your tour in King's Square, St. George." The charge for this is $33 each.

If you want to do this on your own, you should know that carriage drivers, are required by law to have a rate card posted in the vehicle.

Current rates are for a single carriage - drawn by a single horse - for 1-4 passengers US or Bermuda $30 each for 30 minutes, with each succeeding 30 minutes $30. For a double carriage - drawn by two horses - for 1-4 passengers, the same price except that for 5 or more passengers the rate is $5 per passenger for each 30 minutes. You can ask for an informative spoken guided tour.
