I am in Nova Scotia and just heard on the radio that the Carnival Glory has docked in Halifax. The Hurricane is just getting going there. There is lots of wind and rain.

The museums are closed as is the road to Peggy's Cove. The latter is to stop people going there and getting too close to the water.

Update: I heard on the radio that a cruise ship (unnamed) safely docked in Saint John New Brunswick and two tugs are onside keeping it against the dock.

That was the Glory and it dont see how it was docked in Halifax since its itinerary is only 1 port stop at st john. Here is a webcam for the st john harbor:
