Default Need Assistance with Canadian Cruise

We are going on the Carnival Victory in July to Canada (ports, St John's and Halifax). Can anyone tell me what kind of weather to expect and what kind of clothes to bring
(summer/spring)?
Thanks.

Summer weather. Daytime highs to 82 degrees F. on a hot day. Can have cooler evenings...sweater or light jacket. Not too hot and not too cold... You will enjoy it!

Bring layers and you will be fine! If you are from a warmer clime used to warm temps, I would make sure you take a light jacket/windbreaker if you do any tour that goes out on the ocean. I always wear a tank top with a blouse over, either long or short sleeved then you have the option to take it off should it get warm.

Halifax has a great land/sea tour on the "ducks", very fun. Also don't miss the exhibits right at the pier, absolutely wonderful! This is Canada's equivalent to Ellis Island and not to be missed. Back onboard we talked to many people that wished they took the time, but they walked right by and didn't see it!

LAYERS IS A GOOD IDEA. WE WENT IN 2000 AND 2001. 2000 WAS FRIGID TEMPS, COULD HAVE USED A WARM COAT, 2001 WE WERE SWIMMING IN THE POOLS OUTSIDE. WE TRAVELED BOTH TIMES IN MAY. ITS NEW ENGLAND!!! HAPPY CRUISING.

HI! MY HUSBAND AND I ARE GOING IN JULY ALSO!! WE WENT TO CANADA (ST. JOHN AND HALIFAX LAST AUGUST ON CARNIVAL....LOVED IT SO MUCH THAT WE ARE GOING AGAIN!) BRING A LIGHT JACKET TO WEAR OFF SHIP. CAPRI PANTS AND OR JEANS ARE GOOD FOR EXCURSIONS. ALSO, BRING A LIGHT SWEATER TO WEAR ONBOARD -- THE PUBLIC AREAS, CASINOS, RESTAURANTS CAN BE A BIT CHILLY. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A BLAST!!

We went last fall, the colors in Canada were so beautiful. Not too much color in New
England. They had a late color change last year. We enjoyed Halifax very much and
the people were very warm and friendly! You will enjoy it very much.
This year we are looking forward to Hawaii.

Joanne. I live in St John's NL . The weather here can change from hour to hour . July usually is warm and sunny however there can often be a chill in the wind from offshore so the advice concerning layers should be followed. I am a transplanted Brit who has been living in St John's for over 25 years ... I love it here and the people are wonderfull once you manage to understand the accents. My wife and I will be going on our first cruise in October this year on The Paradise so reading all the topics here is of great help. If I can assit you or anyone else visiting St John's just drop me a line and I'll do what I can.

Since we will only be there for one day, can you tell me what points of interest we should not miss?
