  1. Ok, I do like hamburgers and french fries, but a lot of other food too. Just returned from 12 days on the Majestic Princess, Sydney to Auckland. The cruise itself was great, but we were disappointed in the food selection. This was our 11th Princess cruise and have really liked the food in the past. Absolutely, repeat nothing against Asians, but 70% of the buffet was Asian and noted as that. I love soup and nothing against carrot soup or 4 flavor beef consommé, but come on, No one was eating it. We only went to the dining table service twice, once for Fettucine Alfredo and once for the lobster, no other night looked all that great. The pizza restaurant was very good but missed the pizza station near the hamburger station on the pool deck. Did anyone else notice the difference in food selection?

  3. Why do I think I'm right? I have $700 (USD) on-board credits. $300 each for myself and $300 for my wife plus $100 in shareholder credits, all USD thus totalling $700 USD. We are on a cruse out of Sydney and ALL charges against to cabin are in AUD (Austrailian), thus if I take out $20 at a slot machine it is AUD, but on my statement it shows as $700 - $20. Mixing currencies. It should show $700 - $15 ($20 AUD) OR about $980 - $20 all AUD. The guest service desk was totally lost. Please explain where I'm wrong (or right)
  4. To me (in USD), expensive would be for dinner (no alcohol), anything over $30/pp. Breakfast anything over $15/pp (I must be cheap 🙂 )
  5. We will be staying at the Four Seasons near Circular Quay pre-cruise for a few days. Looking for breakfast and dinner suggestions. Not looking to spend $$$$, just good food.
  6. Maybe I'm getting paranoid, but do you need to declare things like Tums that are loose in your pocket or Prep-H that is in your checked baggage?
  7. We will be arriving via air into Sydney from the U.S. We have our VISA's, but was thinking we could pre fill out the declaration form i.e. medications, food......, but can't see to fine one online. Anyone have a link?
  8. Why would I want to pre-pay for a drink package (charging my credit card) when I have OBC's that would pay when settling my account?
  9. I thought I read an article but now can't find it that stated when arriving in Australia you can not have any food with you. This means if you brought M&M's on the flight for a snack, or chips..... you must trash them on the plane if not finished. Is that true?
  10. Anyone know the max daily withdrawal limit at Australia ATM's? I need cash for some tours and may need to withdrawal over a few days.
  11. We are THINKING about a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise. Is it worth it as it will be dark and if so, can you recommend a specific dinner cruise. please.
  12. What is the best way to get from the airport to the Circular Quay area? Taxi, Uber....
  13. I just read that U.S. citizens need a Visa for Australia, but not New Zealand. Is that really true if staying less than 3 months? Sent from my SM-G955U using Forums mobile app
