What is the popular port of call for cruise ships in Nova Scotia?
We have two, possibly more, ports of call for cruise ships in Nova Scotia. Halifax, Nova Scotia is our capital city. Sydney, Nova Scotia also receives many cruise ships throughout the season.
There was until late 2009 when the Government of Nova Scotia declared that they wouldn't subsidize the ferry, which ultimately costing the Town of Yarmouth 100s of jobs. The entire Southern quarter of Nova Scotia is devastated. However, a new cruise ferry service, Nova Star Cruises, began operating in May, 2014. For more information see novastarcruises.com.
