Halifax was a nightmare! Started the day going to Peggy's Cove (one hour trip there, one hour at the lighthouse, one hour back). That was fine and it was a beautiful trip. Will be gorgeous later in the fall for the foliage. We booked the Peggy's Cove and double decker hop on/hop off bus tour of the city. Halifax had 4 ships in port that day (Holland America, Carnival, Princess, and Royal Caribbean). The City's transportation could not handle the influx of people. Fred (free bus) was crammed! We could never get on the double decker bus. The lines were huge to try to get on. We walked to the Maritime Museum, beautiful boardwalk along the water. Museum was packed and could not enjoy the exhibits, especially Titanic. Tried to get on the bus again, no way. Lines and when the bus did stop, no one was getting off. Walked to a brewery for a brewery tour. By that time, it was time to head back to the ship. We never did get to take the loop ride around the city. Complained to Carnival, who originally said, never had a problem before, sorry. They forwarded my complaint to the shore excursion manager, and we did get a 25% refund on the excursion, which was satisfying. There was just no time to see Halifax and if I'd known that, we would have only booked Peggy's Cove and seen the rest of the City on our own and saved $$$.
