Papa58....We have done the Carnival Glory out of NYC to Canada....Like LisaP we are very happy to see her in Boston (where parking is less expensive than but as convenient as NYC)! She is a Great ship and the ports are very interesting.....Peggy's Cove and the HOHO(Hop On-Hop Off) Bus are the things to see and do if this is your first time to Halifax!!
St.John offers the Reversing Falls, The Sea Caves or the Hopewell Rocks...all great journeys of adventure.....before returning to the ship...take a peak into O'Leary's Pub(just around the corner from the pier)...chances are there's a pint of Moosehead there to quaff your thirst!! Enjoy!!
