My husband and I just returned from a cruise to Nava Scotia on 9/11 on the Seranade of the Sea's. We were very worried about rough sea's due to hurricane Fabian, but had no trouble at all. the weather was beautiful all 5 days, in mid to upper 70's. The ship was gorgeous, service and food great! I would not recommend the bus tours in Halifax or St. John. take a taxi. It will be less expensive and you'll have a better time. Was only given 30 min in Peggy's Cove after a horrible hour ride on the bus.
We booked an inside cabin which was spacious enough for the little amount of time that was spent in it. The shows were very good also. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend it!
