Canada or Bermuda?

My husband and I are in our late 40s and plan to take a cruise this summer, departing out of New York City. Cruises to Canada are much cheaper but would we enjoy Bermuda more?

I think you would really enjoy Bermuda. Take a Celebrity cruise and treat your self.

I vote for Bermuda. While I love Canada, Bermuda is truly a beautiful place.

We are going back next week to Bermuda for the 10th time..by cruise ship. On the other hand I do love cruising to Halifax and St. John .

Much of what one would want to see in cruise-accessible areas of Canada is not close enough to dock to make it as practical as Bermuda. (For example, while I love Halifax, you would miss some other really great parts of the Nova Scotia). Another advantage to Bermuda is the great public transportation system.

You might also consider cost - assuming you are from US, the exchange rate for Canada is still favorable enough to make a driving or fly/drive vacation more economical. And since hotels and food in Bermuda are so expensive, we found cost of a cruise was actually cheaper than flying, hotel and food.

Another thought - you can drive to Canada anytime - not really a good option for Bermuda.

My vote would be for Bermuda. It's very beautiful there and well worth the extra money! So far, that was our first cruise and we loved Bermuda. The trip back was something else as we were rocking and rolling on the high seas (literally) but it made for a great story when we got home.

Bermuda! It is so beautiful and as previous poster stated, much more affordable by ship than by plane.
