  1. Well down indeed, they are now called "South Sea Poms"are you thinking of migrating again Brian?😂
  2. If you want to keep on about the Fermented Curd i suggest you look up UTube and watch Monty Pythons Cheese Shop sketch. However getting this thread back to sanity or pies, I recently made a shocking discovery. The Fray Bentos Steak & Kidney Pie in a tin one of the good things to come out of the UK has been sold to Campbells and is now made in NSW. Taste is now very ordinary like most of there products. 🤣
  3. Blessed be Bellamys boy's for they shall have the Holy Grail
  4. I thought that mentioning Dropbears in CC threads had been banned after one scared a US tourist in George St last year. However good point Brian, reward yourself with a Vegemite Sanger.😁
  5. Both Royal and Celebrity supply Shuttles at a cost of $20 US from memory. Yorkeys is about 20 minutes by Bus into Cairns, to far to walk. Yorkeys is a Tender Port and is often a problem for tendering. Taxis and Uber is also available.
  6. Spot on advise, huge Airport Changi if you do manage to arrive early lots to do and see
  7. I received this also. any idea which ship?. The opening of the new Brisbane Terminal would fit in with this time frame and RCI's hype😎
  8. If you discuss your problem with Centrelink they will normally allow you a period of grace, as long as you have notified them before you leave.Have a good trip.
  9. Just back from Albury, visited the Bakery at Beechworth and had the best Coffee Scroll I have eaten for umpteen years, The Apple Turnovers filled with fresh cream are also outstanding.A goldmine in an old mining town.
  10. Have tended at Port of Airie twice in the last 2 years with RCI and Celebrity, a far better option than Abel Point in my opinion.
  11. Easy on the eye that harem, havn't been to Bateman's for years, just got the urge to go. Sharing is a good thing I think, what about it Uncle Les?
  12. Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2019 to all at CC, and may all your cruises be long and refreshing. Uncle Les I want to Party with you !
  13. Rotorau is about 40miles from where your ship docks, about an hour by car; public transport would be slower. Taxi or Uber is an option but rather expensive. I would try for small group tour to ensure you get back before the ship leaves.
  14. Watch out when your swimming the Titanic may have got of the roof of the old Pier
  15. High tide in Nelson Place, hope it didn't get as far as the Steam Packet.
  16. LOL, Sure it's not the Minister blowing more smoke about a new OPT?
  17. If your Credit Card has been debited you should be covered electronically with an entry visa.
  18. The Beatles were the best, getting of topic a Zac was sixpence a Deena was a shilling and a Tray was threepence, but who knows what a Brick was?
  19. 🤣Hi Ho, Hi Ho, on the 29th we go. Can't wait to get to the bathroom oops I mean stateroom
  20. I'm on that cruise Mr Gut that's a lot of Americans in one group,what you could call a conglomerate or maybe corporation! any thoughts?
  21. Well you've convinced me Uncle Les I'm on her on the 29th Oct. will lock myself in the bathroom for 10 nights Darn it anybody want an unused Booze Package?
  22. Excellent full day tour from Ovation earlier this year. Recommend you look at NZ websites and book early as they are popular. The Sulphur fumes are something to behold.
  23. Certainly is.and while Sydney play around with places like Botany Bay for goodness sake more ships will be placed elsewhere.Remember that decision to be made by "the end of the year" never happened. Luggage Point will come online in 2020 and they are talking about taking a lot of traffic from Sydney. Cruise Line companies will not sit around waiting for governments who can't make decisions.Sydney Harbour is in the top 5 waterways in the world and should be the major port for Cruise Lines ,however it could easily become a backwater if the powers that be don't wake up.Anyhow good for us in Melbourne I reckon the Explorer is a blind for an Oasis.
