  1. @caribill That was last year. Jacinda doesn't seem to carry promises from one year to the next!!! New year, new promises to make. The latest idiocy is that we are not using the vaccines we have already in the country; to those that NEED and should have a vaccination; but going slowly so that the vaccinators are not out of work waiting for the next quantities of vaccine to be delivered. We have front line staff who have not been vaccinated. Also there are a group of specialist vaccinators; I haven't heard why those who vaccinate us against measles; flu;
  2. I book an Inside because I want an Inside!!! If they want to move me then we should be able to negotiate more than just a Balcony.
  3. @mimbecky You would think both NZ and Australia would open to vaccinated people I don't know about Australia but New Zealand is going to want a "guarantee" that it is not possible to buy, sell or counterfeit a vaccination certificate. Many of our cases, that are caught at our border, are New Zealand citizens returning from India. There are concerns about the certificates being used by some people to board planes in India. For that reason flights from India have been stopped for two weeks. Personally I would like to see an official addition in a pass
  4. @OzKiwiJJ If your PM will not set a date when "ALL" Australians will be vaccinated by then I cannot see any cruise lines "taking any chances". They will need a deadline from each government for when each government will allow cruise ships to visit. I bet each government will have a number of demands, one will be that x% of their population has been vaccinated. Supposedly the point of "herd immunity".
  5. Two pieces of information from the last 24 hours. 1) Cruise ships are specifically excluded from the Australia/New Zealand bubble. 2) Australia's Prime Minister has scrapped their Vaccination Schedule. Neither is good news for getting cruise ships back to this part of the world. Mike

  7. @fubarbloke NZ is looking at full vaccination in October, "Rose coloured glasses". At the rate we are vaccinating now October 2022 is more likely.
  8. FYI I have a thread where I update information as it comes available in New Zealand. https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/2760660-new-zealand-border/ I suggest you follow that to get "up-to-date" information. I try to add anything I find regarding Australia too. Mike
  9. I hope that NCL is closely following Cruise Critic!!! We, in the New Zealand and Australian region, are being discriminated against yet again. NCL is not offering those of us who live in that area the "Airfare Promo". Mike
  10. I have an interesting one here in New Zealand. If I try to login I get the rotating wheel for "as long as". BUT if I completely close down the Princess website and then go back to the website I find that I am logged in!!

  12. @HaveWeMetYet Will the borders be instantly shut stranding NZ and OZ citizens from getting back in? By NZ law NZ cannot deny re-entry to NZ citizens. They can force them into Managed Isolation which they have to pay for. They can close the borders to planes from certain infected parts of the world. If NZ citizens can get to the border they can cross it.
  13. @HBCcruiser @Crazy planning mom Thank you Mike
  14. For those following this; I emailed the following to our Covid Minister:- 1) Is the government in talks with any of the major cruise lines regarding entry of cruise ships into New Zealand? 2) If not, why not? 3) What restrictions will the New Zealand Government put in place for New Zealanders returning to New Zealand by cruise ship? 4) What restrictions will apply to "bubble country" citizens? 5) What restrictions to all other citizens? 6) When does the government anticipate allowing cruise ships to visit New Zealand? There are some very specific quest
  15. @Crazy planning mom Jade also has O'Sheehan's Pub Where is O'Sheehan's on the jade plaese?
