I just want to know who broke the mirror on the Star? First 10 metre seas, then dry dock for more troubles, now a big low off Queensland is just waiting for the Pacific Star to return. Would someone just 'fess up so we can throw them overboard so all can get back to normal?

There was a bloke sitting in the Legends Bar on the Sky during the Malacca Straits trip that broke down in 05.

He was heard to say that he had been on every single trip on the Sky that had experienced problems.

To this day he'll never know how close he came to being thrown overboard.

Maybe these days he travels on the Star

Maybe he originally thought that the SKY was the limit and then changed his mind and decided to reach for the STARs

Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm in a sicko mood.

Yes I usually get an email each day... That's how I knew that diver's had been in the water under the ship again in Vila.

I believe they are having fun. Of course we will hear all about it in two more sleeps!!! When I spoke to my Mum (Suey) earlier tonight and asked her what she was doing this weekend the response was not much, oh I guess I have to go pick them up! Took me a moment to work out who them was!!

Cheers,
Charmain

Just looking at those webcams from voer the bow.

Paula and I were on Carnival Freedom in July in the Med. I think the worst it got was on one day I was going up some stairs on the Spa deck and had to grab the handrail once or twice. The same day I felt a little bit of movement while in the shower with my eyes closed and had to steady myself. So all in all a very calm trip.

We are trying to organise a cruise for 2009 and I was thinking of Melbourne to NZ in February across the Tasman. As Paula thinks she is prone to sea sickness but didn't get a chance to find out in July just what is it like in the sort of weather I can see from the web cams on this post? Would getting an oceanview or balcony cabin help to cope with the motion or they so far up in the ship that they exagerate the movement?

Oh dear, just looked at those earlier photos.

Speaking of captains where has Captain Ravera gone, anyone know?

DavidandPaula, the balcony may help with the motion sickness but certainly the higher up the more movement. Friends were in a suite in July and there was a big difference in the movement between their cabin and our lowclass inside one.

Hi ADF, Captain Ravera was on the Dawn Princess in May-July this year.
he was on board when the sightseeing plane went down in Alaska killing 5 passengers from the ship.
I don't know where he is at the moment.
I agree with you, the lower cabins in centre of ship are better in rough weather, regardless what others say.
kind regards, Lorraine
