A Facelift for the Princess of Acadia

Here's a bit of news about an extreme makeover Bay of Fundy style! While I was in Saint John last week I learned that the ferry between this Fundy city and the town of Digby on the Nova Scotia side of the Bay (the Princess of Acadia) is scheduled for a complete refurb this spring. Owners, Bay Ferries, have actually hired an interior decorator to spiff up this well-loved ferry link between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

The two main passenger spaces is being fully recarpeted, all furniture is being reupholstered, the seating configuration is being changed, and the company will be adding new computers stations for passengers. This, combined with a new fare structure, is expected to renew interest in traversing the Bay of Fundy by ferry. The crossing only takes about 3 hours - I think it sounds like an awesome Bay of Fundy mini-cruise!

Hey that is a great news. Sometime in September I did a piece on the ferry for the Reader magazine and I am really happy to hear that they are giving the ferry one more chance. It was a beautiful ride. By the way, lovely blog. I am glad I found it.
