The Port of Halifax is the flagship destination of the Canada-New England cruise itinerary. No wonder!
Passengers are greeted by the skirl of bagpipes as the 78th Highlanders perform the traditional dockside greeting that won Halifax the "Best Port Welcome" award from Dreamworld Cruise Destination Magazine and "Most Receptive Port" award at the Canada-New England Cruise Symposium Marketing Awards in 2002.
The Halifax Seaport offers more than 2,000 feet (611 metres) of continuous berth space. Passengers enjoy the convenience of moving direct from ship-to-shore. Covered hydraulic gangways lead directly into Pavilion 22, our new cruise passenger handling facility. Pavilion 22 offers visitors the best of Nova Scotian handcrafts, gifts and signature products. Phones, tour and visitor information are also available at the facility. Tour buses and taxis are conveniently located in front of Pavilion 22.
