Aug. 21/28 /04 will be our 3rd Canada new englsnd cruise. We have been on NCL. Cunard and this time HAL>. I remember in particular that in Halifax, there were vans and car reantal afents on the dock. Car rental was very inexpensive. We rented a car one ;year and went to Peggy's voe. it was a lovely drive and beautiful spot to visit.
Hope that helps.
