I can't say too much good about Baltimore I will tell you to watch the people around you when in Baltimore. There are numerous muggings in Baltimore every day around the inner harbor where most people would go. I gave this a 2 rating because of the crime in Baltimore. It is easy to get to the cruise port from where I live but I wish they had built it on the other side of the Key Bridge. We are restricted to the size of the ships that can enter the cruise port. A port around the Dundalk area would have no restrictions Coming from the south there would be a toll for a bridge or tunnel unless you wanted to go via downtown Baltimore. Got some pictures as we were departing port of Baltimore and down the bay.

We went on a bus and walking tour and were able to get off of the bus and walk and shop and then board another bus to return to the ship. A good idea, more cities should look into this. We got off on the street where there was a LL Bean outlet store. I can't remember the name. Did a little shopping in there. A few pictures.

Bar Harbor is nice except for the climb up the hill to see all the shops. It was a little difficult for me with my walker. There is a seat on my walker so I was able to stop and rest every once in a while going up the hill. A lot of nice stores to shop in. There is a very good seafood restaurant on the pier. Lots of pictures

We stayed in the dock area so we didn't see any of the city. There is a large sale tent on the dock if you just want to shop. We went through that and shopped. Our Son in Law and Daughter were with us and they toured for a short distance outside the gate but they said that there was not much to see. There are pink double decker buses that leave the dock area every so oten so I would say if you want to see the city take one of those. I don't know what the fare is. Good pictures

Halifax was nice except when I was there before in the 1950s there were vender's selling fish and chips on the street. Couldn't find any this time. There were shops on the pier here also and that is where we spent part of our day. More pictures

We rode the trolley supplied by RCCL to Faneuil Hall and enjoyed the markets. When I was a kid I went to the markets with a wholesale fruit and produce vendor and it sure has changed since then. At the time trucks and wagons backed up to a platform where the vender's purchased there wares. I don't know which building it was but it is different then when I was a kid, 1930s. Got some more good pictures.
