I really don't think you'll have any trouble filling the time, there's quite a bit of interest to see there. From about 1.56 in this shows a few of the sights. All the best, Tony

Same here. I was on a Veendam B2B (Boston-Bermuda-Boston then Boston-Quebec City, 4-19 July 2015) and we had a letter saying we didn't have to do the second one. Strange how/why it varies.

Ouch ! That's a real blow. We really enjoyed PEI but even if Sydney is a contender for the dullest port area I've ever seen, I'm told Cape Breton Island is really lovely so hopefully you...

3 PEI videos - Charlottetown, Cavendish coast, LMM/A of GG

Decent port hours (9-6) for this one so we could have travelled far afield, but instead opted for a 3-hour drive in a taxi picked up at the port. We were a party of 6 and there was a group of drivers...

Halifax and Sydney

At Halifax we did this after hiring taxi (3 hours/$180) at the port. All standard cruise-day stuff, of course. Cars can go close to the rocks at Peggy's Cove so your mother would be able to see the...

Sydney, Nova Scotia video (port area only)

We knew there is almost nothing to see or do in the port area but none of the excursion possibilities excited us, certainly not enough to commit to a 3 or 4 hour taxi, so I just wandered around for...
