Planned itinerary post-cruise tour
Day 1: Halifax / Disembarkation
After disembarkation start your tour with free time at the Maritime Museum of Atlantic Canada, the oldest and largest maritime museum in Canada, and learn more about Nova Scotia's role in the aftermath of the Titanic disaster.
Next, you’re on your way to the historic community of Peggy's Cove. Hear how glaciers and constant pounding by ocean waves have shaped the world-renowned village's granite shores. Visit Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, which has inspired generations of writers, photographers and painters, and the famous deGarthe Memorial Monument, carved out of coarse stone by artisan William deGarthe. Take time to explore the shops and galleries around this working fishing community before returning to Halifax by way of St. Margaret's Bay.
At the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, your guide will walk the grounds with you, bringing to life the tale of the great ship Titanic and its ill-fated maiden voyage. Discover the true identities of the unknown child and J. Dawson. Their stories are part of a poignant legacy that continues to fascinate visitors more than 100 years later.
The tour ends at a centrally located hotel in Halifax, leaving the rest of the day at your leisure before your overnight.
