I’ll be stepping off of Veendam just before you board!
I’m in Sydney now. Not much to see in this small town. Governors pub and eatery is fun and lively with live music. I think they open at noon. Turn right when you exit the ship and it’s one of the first things you see in town. (Left side of street as you are walking into town.).
In Halifax an excursion to Peggy’s Cove is nice. I have been before so didn’t go this year. Lots to see walking on the waterfront including the Maritime Museum if you are interested in that kind of thing. Some nice restaurants but a little pricy and touristy.
In Bar Harbor I recommend the ship excursion to Acadia National Park. 14 passenger bus so you don’t have the “large bus experience!” I don’t usually take ship excursions but highly recommend this one. After the tour you have plenty of time to walk around the pretty town and to eat Lobster! I had a lobster roll that was yummy.
I will send another note if something jumps out in the remaining ports.
Enjoy your cruise!
