I was on the Triumph in November -- you love her. I also live in Halifax so feel free to ask any questions. I would recommend a few things, depending on what you like. Peggy's Cove is a great place to see. It's approx an hour's drive from the pier . If you like shopping and exploring, you can do it on you own. Everything in Halifax is within walking distance of the pier. There's also a free bus called FRED (free everywhere downtown) that's a great convenience. You could do some shopping, eating (lots of great food), go to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, where there's a few items from the Titanic. You could take a boat tour, go to the casino, or just walk around. If you opt to walk around, don't miss eating Beaver Tails (a delicious pastry), and Cows Ice Cream (with some fun items to purchase).
