Discover the Charm of Halifax, Nova Scotia, with Disney Cruise Line

Last year, I had the chance to travel to our new Canadian ports to develop and choose Port Adventures for guests to enjoy this summer on our five-night voyages from New York City. These trips are a favorite part of my job and a great opportunity to experience first-hand the best these destinations have to offer!

Today I want to tell you about Halifax, a place full of rich history. The most popular destinations are Peggy’s Cove, a famous fishing village renowned for its lighthouse, and the Citadel, a National Historic Site completed by the British in 1856 where children and adults alike can follow the steps of 78th Highlanders.

Guests can truly tailor their visit to Halifax with signature experiences exclusive to Disney Cruise Line.

The Disney Exclusive 2-Day Overnight Cross-country Adventure is a private tour with an 18-passenger VIP Executive Coach, a driver and a tour guide for two days, plus an overnight stay at the golf-lover’s paradise, Fox Harb’r Hotel. It is a great option for golf lovers and families that want the flexibility to follow their own itinerary.

The Port Adventure Learn the Ropes Featuring Exclusive Youth Activity & Hop On Hop Off starts with a family-friendly visit to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. After the museum visit, children are accompanied by Disney Cruise Line counselors for a fun-filled activity to learn four basic knots every sailor must know while parents have the option to continue visiting the museum or take a break at the beautiful waterfront area. Then the entire family reunites to continue exploring Halifax with a full-day pass to the Hop On Hop Off bus, the best way to explore town at leisure.

  • Nice… but do you have Off Kilter music playing during the tour?

  • Have the cruises from nyc to canada been discontinued for 2013. Its not listed anywhere. not even on the disney cruise line website.

  • Dear Mr. Zanonato,

    This Canadian itinerary is sure to be a sucess with future cruisers. The beauty of the Canadian east coast will teach history and create life-long memories.

    We are Gold Castaway Club members and are sure to include this itinerary in our plans.

    Thank you for venturing on new, refreshing horizons with DCL.


  • It’s great to see the Canadian port adventures finally getting some publicity! We are booked on the first of the Canadian cruises and I have been looking forward to seeing just what is offered. Hopefully you’ll have an upcoming blog entry that goes into more details on some of the other adventure opportunities.

  • Welcome to Halifax! We will be on the dock waving our Mickey hands for each arrival (we hope). Can’t wait to see the Magic out my office window! It’s a special place for us as we got married on the ship in 2006!

  • Can’t wait for our September cruise, but can’t figure out why people would want to leave the splendor of the Magic to spend the night on a bus trip??

  • I just squealed when I read this post! I live a few hours away from Halifax and visit there a few times every year, and have spent a lot of time there over the years; Halifax has MUCH to offer!

    I am overjoyed that Disney Cruise Line guests will get to experience the rich culture, heritage, and east coast hospitality that is second to none.

  • As a born and bred Maritimer, all I can say is, “Welcome!”
