DAY 1 An Urban Center, a Magnificient Seacoasat, and Rich History
Location : Halifax
While the area around Halifax has been inhabited by the native Mi'kmaq peoples for millennia, modern Halifax was founded in 1749 as a British military outpost. Today it is Atlantic Canada’s entertainment and cultural capital, melding the old and new worlds. Modern office towers of glass and steel stand beside historic buildings that once stored the booty of privateers. Located on the second-largest natural harbor in the world, life here revolves around the sea, and the surrounding areas offer plenty of fun activities on land, on water, and in the air. Spend some time exploring this vibrant urban center that rests on the edge of nature, or join one of the optional excursions.

You will, of course, also have plenty of time to relax and just enjoy being on board the ship.
