Sydney, NS, Canada

Australia’s famous capital isn’t the only Sydney worth cruising to! While exploring Canada & New England on a Carnival cruise, you can dig deeper into a pocket of Canadian history, a city that was actually founded in the late 18th century by loyalist British soldiers retreating from the American Revolution. Robust industries fueled by the region’s natural resources sprang up, leading to the place you’ll enjoy exploring today. Start at the harbor — you can’t miss it because of the huge fiddle! It’s the world’s largest and hints at the live music (sea shanties, anyone?) you might experience while dining at the waterfront restaurants enjoying freshly-caught seafood. There’s actual history to explore here, with the entire Fortress of Louisbourg having been painstakingly recreated from its original rubble to showcase a pivotal location from the Seven Years’ War. Alexander Graham Bell’s house is another shouldn’t-miss for fans of the inventive spirit that spurred modern communications as we know it.
