Four ships! That’s right, four cruise ships in the Port of Halifax today. That’s a lot for a small port. And not only ships…PEOPLE!
I love cruising. It is one of my favourite ways to vacation. To be in our home province and in our city when there are 4 cruise ships visiting is exciting to me. I said to my husband if we lived right in the city I would want to work in that industry somehow. It excites me. Actually tourism is so interesting and I love meeting and talking to people visiting our province and I absolutely love cruising, so the two put together would be a really fun job.
This year is a great year for the number of cruise ships coming to the Port of Halifax. Just look up Cruise Schedule for Port of Halifax and you will see. A lot of days 2 and 3 ships. Some days 4 and actually on October 1st there will be 5 ships. That is so terrific! So many people visiting our beautiful province.
We were in the city today and actually made a point of going to the Port and then went to the Dartmouth side to get a picture of all four ships together. Two Royal Caribbean ships, a Holland America ship, and our favourite a Norwegian Cruise Line ship ( the Dawn).
It’s a lot of fun to go down to the Pavilions on cruise ship days. It’s the only time the shops are open and I like browsing. We had a great day and even grabbed a late lunch at the Seaport market.
The back drop looks different when there is a cruise ship in port. Oh…to be cruising!!
