No cruise booked yet. We applied for a cruise inspection and lunch on Radiance of the Seas next month and got accepted but today I got an email saying sorry, overbooked. Very disappointing (especially because the girl said she had tried to call me, but i didn't have a missed call notification so I'm a bit skeptical about that). I know Rosemary was lucky enough to get an inspection and lunch on a Princess ship.

Hi Margot
Have just read your thread, great to remember fun times.
Today is Australia Day, rain rain go away - all celebrations have been cancelled, we were going to a breakfast bbq cruising on our beautiful river. Now off to celebrate lunch with friends, one was on the Spirit of Adventure while we were in port. She very much enjoyed her trip travelling solo with mostly British tourists.
Good to see the photo of the Century, Silver Shadow and Spirit of Adventure together. We have booked the Silver Shadow Singapore - Singapore 28th March to celebrate Merv's 70th.
Cheers

Hi Margot and all
No cruises for awhile. Planning a land trip to Hawaii February 2013 with my brother, sister in law and another couple to celebrate a few big birthdays. That's our next big trip.
Larry still wants to do the Baltic and both want to try a river cruise. Who knows when.

We leave on the 15 Feb to fly to Perth, for the Perth to Sydney cruise on Century which leaves on the 17th. It will feel like home, as we were just on! Our birthdays are next week on 10th and 12th Feb, so we are having a party. Some friends are flying down from Brisbane for it, and staying next weekend, and leaving on Sunday night. Then Bill's Mum and Dad arrive on the Monday to look after the house and cats while we are away, and we fly out on the Wednesday night, and working right up untill Wed night as it is a parliament sitting day! So it will be a stressful few days, a very rushed packing, but something nice to look forward to at the end. Hope everyone is well and happy!

Hi Yvette and Bill.

How did your cruise Perth to Sydney go? Would be keen to hear about it as it is one of those Pete & I would like to do.

In particular, what was the weather like in Feb - was it very very hot??? We are thinking Princess April to July may be better, but it is more expensive! And I think there is now a Princess one in Sept next year, and RCCI do this itineray in Oct/Nov.

I know alot of ports are tender, which doesn't worry me alot, but the heat does!
