  1. Are you staying on Sydney/Australia for a few more days now or heading home straight away?
  2. Great sunrise pics. Can’t believe I’m boarding tomorrow. I’ll “attempt” to get up in time for a sunrise with those sorts of views to look forward to.
  3. I did this trick a few months ago and can confirm the same cabin number was officially assigned a couple of weeks out from sail date which is tomorrow so I’m not expecting a change at this stage. For those with Apple phones, if you open the SetSail pass in the Royal app it comes up with the option to add to Apple Wallet, which does the same thing so that you don’t need to download a barcode reader.
  4. I’m leaving on Thursday on Ovation of the Seas, Fri and Sat at sea heading to Noumea. Anyone tell if we’d be right amongst it? Surely they adjust course?
  5. Looks like you had an absolutely perfect day for it. So great! 20+ years ago I was on one of those much smaller ships and we stayed overnight in Milford Sound and we got to swim off the side, it was really beautiful. Amazing photos Twangster, you could probably make a tidy profit selling copies to people on your cruise alone!
  6. They filmed bits of Lord of the Rings on Mount Victoria. Hope your tour includes a stop in the Weta workshop, it’s very cool 🙂
  7. I’m boarding Ovation in a few days when Twangster’s Cruise comes back to Sydney. I got an email from Royal about 15 mins ago confirming that they are not letting anyone on who is travelling on a Chinese, Hong Kong or Macau passport now - along with all the regular restrictions that they’ve been saying for a few days now.
  8. @twangster what’s the general feeling onboard? I’m boarding when you disembark and lots of people in our group on face book are in panic mode about the corona virus. I’m hoping it all calms down once we’re onboard. Does it feel like any other cruise to you or is there a noticeable tension etc?
  9. Those photos are beautiful - are they given as part of the climb or do you pay extra for them? Glad it was a nice morning - was that 1st Feb? I thought I saw on the news this morning (2 Feb) that the bushfire smoke was back over the harbour?
  10. I’m wondering also how they will know how you got to Sydney? Are they expecting people to self report/be honest or in this sort of situation do they get some access to immigration info?
  11. Highly recommend organising to have the same waiters every night. I have a fussy eater and each night when we arrived the fruit bowl and vegetables crudités were brought straight out for him immediately and then his main (he had the same thing each night) shortly after. It was his birthday the day after we disembarked and they made a big fuss on our last night and sang to him with a little birthday cake.
  12. So glad you got a lovely clear day with no bushfire smoke. If you go over to the Opera House, particularly at night, there are nice views going the other way towards the bridge and Luna Park.
  13. Us Aussies are suckers for a good compliment, you would be hugely popular here 🙂 She is definitely a beautiful city to fly into on a nice day and feel like you’re home after a trip.
