Bar Harbor Cruise destination

Will be stopping at the end of May in Bar Harbor on our cruise on the Maasdam.

Supposedly, we are docking at a port called "Harbor Place". Does anyone know where this is located, and is it walking distance from the shops and sights in town?

Also, if we choose NOT to take an excursion from the ship, what would be the best way to get into Acadia?

Thanks :)

I live near Bar Harbor, the area you will be docking in is a right in the downtown area. All of the shops will be very near by. There are some nice shops, many of the typical tourist trap kinda places but you'll find many interesting little places to poke around in. There is a shuttle bus service for guided tours of Acadia, www.acadiavacations.com/a237/a237-05.htm I would imagine its the same one your ships excursion has been arranged with. If its a beautiful day with good visability don't miss Acadia.
