    Sorry you were cheated on the Halifax excursion. My family took our annual Toronto-Halifax rail excursion to coincide with the QM2's call in Halifax, so we were waving at and photographing the ship. For the benefit of anyone taking a future cruise calling at Halifax, there is a free shuttle bus called FRED (Free Rides Everywhere Downtown.) This can be quite busy when there are a lot of ships in port, but FRED gets assistants form other buses if needed. Two days later there were five ships in port and I saw three shuttles leaving the pier around the same time. As Davies said, Halifax is not known for its shopping centres downtown (I'm afraid the larger centres are in the suburbs,) but there are plenty of shops and very good restaurants in the central area. As indicated, the downtown area of Halifax is not too far for walking; the boardwalk is the best route. Right at the piers (QM2 normally uses Pier 22) is the extremely interesting Pier 21 museum to immigration. In addition to the Maritime Museum, the Citadel is well worth a visit. Even if military history isn't to your taste, the views from the top of the hill are stunning. I'm not a Haligonian, but Halifax is one of my favourite destinations in our country.
