We cruised in to this port and it, as many other Canadian provinces, is beautiful. We also got to see photos from the “huge snow” several years ago where they used one of the three port area for dumping the snow. A beautiful city!

Quaint Canadian City. Shops and other spots to visit within walking distance of the cruise ship pier. City Market nice to visit along with adjacent shopping mall. Beaver Tails vendor is a fun treat.

The port is easy to navigate. It’s full of local vendors selling their wares. Well laid out and it was painless getting on & off the cruise ship.

We walked around the lower streets in downtown Saint John and enjoyed it. The warf is pretty. We stopped at food truck and enjoyed a "beavertail" which is a sweet treat and "beaver dog" which is a deep fried sausage roll.
