THE WEATHER IS GREAT, REALLY COMFORTABLE. TAKE A TOUR TO PEGGY'S COVE. THE SCENERY AND LIGHTHOUSE ARE UNBELIEVABLE. REMEMBER THE TV SERIES, "MURDER SHE WROTE"? ALL THE OUTDOOR SCENES WERE FILMED THERE.
I was there last July and the weather was perfect, sunny and 75. On the boardwalk in Halifax you can book a whale watching tour. We found out too late about it and"missed the boat". This excursion is not mentioned on board the Victory, but seemed very popular on the boardwalk.
Dont forget your american money will be worth alot more here in Canada not as much as it used to be I think right now for every american dollar it is worth $1.35 Canadian dont quote me on this but that is about it. Dont bring big bills because you will get canadian currency back as change not american!!!!!!!!

Sandy -- We were thinking about this trip. Haven't decided yet (& may not be able to go -- family wedding). One of my concerns is the temperature. Given the dates, I was also wondering if on Sunday night as we sailed north would there be fireworks or any celebration of the 4th of July? Do they sail closer to the coast so we can see them in the distance?
we are thinking of this cruise in sept, What airport is best to fly into? We are coming from California and would like to come in day before to see new york. thanks for any advise on air and hotels.!!!!!!!! Happy sailing!!!
Took the Serenade of the Seas week of October 14, 03. Could not go into port in Maine because of bad weather. Did get to see halifax though. It was fun but I would not take the 3-4 hour tour again, too long.
