Portland (Maine)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
In Portland, our group bought a city pass to ride their buses for $15. Took it to Observatory, which was similar to a lighthouse. Construction was amazing. Ate Lobster roll and fries at Duckfat. Duckfat cooks homemade Maine fries in grease with Duckfat. Tasty. Lots of shopping in Old downtown Portland which is right off the pier.

Group purchased a van tour for $45/hr for 5 hours. We lucked out. Garry of Van Tours of Nova Scotia was a history buff and loved telling stories about his country. Went to Peggy's Cove which was very foggy but nice. Also went to other coves, Maple Shack, Titanic graveyard, and Citadel. His stories made the trip the best. Ate lunch at Fisherman's corner, Yummy. Outside tables for fish and chips, lobster roll, and scallops.

Prince Edward Island was a tender port but was not long. Nice entertainment in harbor marina.

Home to Anne of Green Gables and places Prince William and Kate visited while in Canada. also went to Goat cheese and soap shop, and jam store.

Hired a van to tour the island for $50/hr for 5 hours.
