The new Queen Mary 2 docked at Halifax's Pier 21 Cruise Ship Terminal across from the VIA Station just as the w/b Ocean was ready to depart for Montreal. Sat Sept 25/04.

The QM2 is on its first visit to Halifax where the Cunard Line was founded in 1840.

Here's some pictures:

Thank you so much for posting these four photos. I travelled to Halifax aboard that consist of the Ocean for the purpose of videotaping the arrival of the Queen Mary 2. I shot most of the video from my harbour-view room in the former Canadian National (now Westin) Nova Scotian Hotel adjacent to the railway station.

The fourth photo of the ship heading south just off the downtown core is quite extraordinary as cruise ships don't normally go "up harbour" beyond Pier 21. The Queen Mary 2 made a magnificant tour of the harbour before tying up alongside Pier 21.
