In Response to Cruise to Nova Scotia, etc.:[QUOTE]
Would love to see Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, etc. Is there any cruise this summer (2013) that I could take from New York City area? Alternatively, what companies do land tours (I do not want to travel independently)?

Holland America has many cruises this summer, mainly from Boston. My wife and I just booked a 14 day cruise which sails from Boston to Quebec Ciyt, and then back to Boston. The itinerary also stops in Halifax, Sydney, and Charlottetown, However, the stops are short, but our back-to-back, 7 day cruises will allow us to stop twice in each port, and also spend 3 days in Quebec City.
A few years ago, my wife and I caught a ferry from Maine, which allowed us to take our own car. It's a great way to see Nova Scotia. We spent some time in Mahone Bay, which usually has a Wooden Ship Festival every summer around August. It's a lot of fun. Also, visit Lunenberg, and Peggy's Cove. All of the places I just mentioned are just below Halifax.
