Boston
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We toured Boston independently using the shuttle. We walked around the area near Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, eating at a wonderful little "dive" called Salty Dog's. The fried clams were great! Since we had been to Boston before and already done the touristy things this was a great choice for us.

We took the Peggy's Cove bus tour at Halifax. Our experience was marred by my husband's car sickness on the bus. The road was very winding and up and down and needless to say, he was sick by the time we got to Peggy's Cove and then we had to ride back. Peggy's Cove is very isolated with a small restaurant and gift shop. Neither sold any type of medication. I was told the nearest pharmacy was 20 minutes away. The view here was spectacular with huge stones left fromt the glacier and a very picturesque lighthouse. The tour was very well done and was worth the money to me but definitely not to my husband!

This was my favorite excursion! We took the walking and carriage ride tour which was well worth the money! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. She kept the tour moving and on time. The walking was not too much and the carriage ride through Quebec very beautiful! We ate lunch in Quebec on our own and wandered though the city before returning to the ship.

Charlottetown is a very small city which can be toured in under one hour. We cancelled our bus tour to Anne of Green Gables because of my husband's previous experience on a bus. We walked around the town independently and were back on the ship in a couple of hours.

Very picturesque little city coming into the port. It began raining as we walked into town so we ate lunch at a wonderful little pub, the Governor's Pub, and returned to the ship.
