For my dollar I say " Bermuda" It costs so much to travel there on your own, that a cruise is the least expensive way to expierence this lovely country. Sailed there last Aug. on a 5 day from Bayonne and loved it.

Another reason I would suggest Bermuda is that most of the Carnival cruises from the east coast of Florida make a stop in the Bahamas, so you could visit them on an Eastern Caribbean cruise. Very few lines go to bermuda and then onto the Caribbean.

Not even a contest to me, Bermuda. Freeport is only like 80 miles from Ft. Lauderdale and kinda ugly brown to me. You can go there on a $99 day cruise, or used to be able to. They used to leave early in the morning and come back by midnight. I only went because it was cheap. Most of the 3/4 day cruises out of Fl also go to Freeport or Nassau for the same reason, very close to Florida and its cheap.

Bermuda is a very expensive tourist destination and something special to me.

I dont see the two are even comparable.
