Departure Ports

Bountiful Beantown

Boston’s rich history, diverse culture, and vibrant city life make it a perfect place to explore before or after your Boston to Nova Scotia cruise. Soak in the history of the city by walking the Freedom Trail, touring the statehouse on cobblestoned Beacon Hill, and visiting the monuments at Boston Common. Savor the tastes and treats in the North End, the city’s oldest neighborhood, and Little Italy before you embark on your cruise from Boston.

Ports of Call

Halifax, Nova Scotia

In Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, stroll along its bustling waterfront, stop in a sidewalk cafe, and explore local statues and memorials. Spend time at Peggy’s Cove, a quaint and active fishing village perched on the rugged coastline and home to the Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, said to be the most photographed lighthouse in all of Canada.

Sydney, Nova Scotia

Sydney’s location on Nova Scotia’s southeast coast, the gateway to Cape Breton Island, makes it as perfectly suited for relaxed historical walking tours as it is for leisurely passing time around the port. Tour Old Sydney with a guide and hear the island’s history through rich storytelling. Venture farther afield during your Nova Scotia cruise for unique exhibits and artifacts at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Stroll, shop, and dine near the port. Be sure to see the Big Fiddle, a tribute to the city’s Celtic heritage, and hear how it came to stand outside the cruise port terminal.
