  1. I wonder what would happen if I just got off my cruise ship as a Canadian in Portland and never returned, even though I was supposed to truly disembark in New York? Honestly think about this. We expect that Americans in Canada follow the rules of the cruise ship and the rights that our respective immigration bureaus allow cruise ships. I'm sorry if you have a bad situation, but please realize you are entering a foreign country here under some fairly strict rules.
  2. Is this a communication you just got from RC? And I can’t say I’m surprised at all that we’d have to do the CBP song and dance twice. 🙄 EDIT: just got the email 😞
  3. Technically if you’re worried about this (or something changing between now and your trip) an ETA is only $7. So if you want to be 100% safe you can just apply for one. We have to pay for our health care somehow. (Jokes 😂)
  4. I'd like to pick up a package of bottled water (standard size 6 or 12) at one of the train stations prior to our cruise next week. We will be in both stations (Montreal and Quebec) travelling between so I can get it at either one. Do any locals know if they sell packages of water at the train station dépanneurs or if I need to find it elsewhere? Ideally I'd love to just get off the train in QC, grab a package there and taxi directly to the port but I'll take it with me from Montreal if need be.
  5. I have a double-hyphenated name (first and last - OMG right?!). Any system that doesn't take a hyphen I run them together with no space and I haven't had a problem anywhere with countless travel docs thank goodness but a lot of times I have to 'try' both as I can't remember if the booking system at the time took a hyphen or not - LOL. My passport contains the hyphens as it should.
  6. Peggy's Cove appears to be back in business too, crazy as always. Hopefully everyone's home is OK but the tour buses are back. https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/peggys-cove-lighthouse/ https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/peggys-cove-village/
  7. Veendam and Caribbean Princess are sitting in port right now so obviously they've got it ready to go. If there's one port ready for things like this it's going to be Halifax. Incredible job on the ground there! https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/pier-21/
  8. Hi - I'm looking at doing this on Sept 15th in the evening. I'm not 100% sure yet if we're going to, but if I do I will be sure to get you answers. From what I see, the $18.95 would ONLY be for the Gardens Of Light. If you wanted regular day access to the botanical gardens during the day, or the Planetarium, it's more. I'll see what they have for food too if I go.
  9. Actually looks like there's a Holland America ship looking to dock tomorrow (Monday). I know you have serious power outages though and I hope you're restored soon, outage map shows that restoration near the port is estimated to be tonight. I hope those ships can still dock as the local businesses will want to get back to normal ASAP.
  10. Are you sure about 4 days? Which would mean from today (Sunday) through Wednesday? You've got 3 ships coming Tues/Wed (Princess and two RC). None of those have indicated that they are not stopping in Halifax as of right now so I wonder if it's more that the Farmer's Market and shopping are closed today/tomorrow but the port itself will accept these ships. ?
  11. For a real view on the ground, check out the webcam of Merlin The Talking Parrot in the Museum Of The Atlantic in Halifax. You can hear the rain lashing outside the window but he seems in good spirits, chatting away and saying "peek-a-boo". Also the occasional happy squawk. Stay safe Halifax and all of Atlantic Canada and see you soon! https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/merlin-the-talking-parrot/
  12. This is really awesome - thank you so much for taking the time to do this!
