Nova Scotia Cruise Highlights

Delicious Seafood

There are plenty of fishing communities in Nova Scotia, so naturally, the region is famous for its seafood. Try some of the local lobster, crab, and haddock dishes while you're in port, or enjoy a Maritime-style boil—seafood cooked with broth in a stockpot—on the harbor in Halifax. Make sure to try Nova Scotia's famous smoked salmon, typically served with cream cheese, bagels, and capers, or eaten on thin crackers as a snack.

Coastal Scenery

The craggy and wild coastline of Nova Scotia is one of the most compelling reasons to visit this pristine region. Head to Peggy’s Cove and see the picturesque Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, standing proudly on the rocks, or visit Point Pleasant Park for some scenic walking trails right by the coast.


Nova Scotia is home to some excellent museums. At the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and HMCS Sackville, you’ll learn about maritime history and can tour an old WWII-era ship. See the works of local artists at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and learn about 18th-century living at Cossit House Museum.
