There is a small motel just outside Truro, Nova Scotia that is located next to the 'Tidal Bore' observation park. Great spot, but will be busy when the bore is scheduled to arrive, quiet other than that. It is very interesting.
I've also done a float trip down the Shubenacadie River. You go downstream until you meet the 'tidal bore', then float back upstream to your departure point.
If your going on a cruise, Good luck with the timing.

I haven't been there for years, but the little town of Alma, New Brunswick used to have small motels and cottages for rent. If I recall correctly, the town is right on the Bay of Fundy. I remember walking along the bottom of the Bay when the tide was out. This is a beautiful area, so I hope you enjoy it. If you happen to be camping, the Fundy National Park has severaly beautiful camping areas within the park. There's lots to see. You can always contact either the New Brunswick or Nova Scotia department of tourism by Internet and ask them to mail you some information. Both provinces put out a nice tourist book every year which lists all the types of accommodations available and maps of the area(s). I hope this helps.
