  1. Well, I found another couple on our same flight to Sydney who are staying at the same hotel overnight before the same cruise. We will share a cab to the hotel and to the ship the following day. Therefore, I have cancelled the shuttle reservation and there will be no follow up to my little adventure. That is all.
  2. I never responded to this. They say they will take us to the door. White Bay is nowhere near anything! Our cruise will end at OPT and since a cab ride to White Bay seemed unavoidable it didn't really seem to matter much where we stayed. Thus the Holiday Inn for both nights. Haven't decided what we will do but I will try to remember to report back mid November.
  3. We are arriving at 8 am on October 16, a Wendesday and leaving from White Bay Cruise terminal. The cruise ends at OPT so I figured we might as well use the Holiday Inn for both. I just got a lengthy reply from the shuttle company (Sydney Airport Arrival Shuttle), so that is encouraging. If they don't show up, I can always take a taxi at that point and pay $25 for the lesson.
  4. The big problem with the train guys is the bags. We're headed for a 30 day cruise. Sorry it's the Holiday Inn, not the Hilton
  5. I found a recent website (GetYourGuide.com) which is advertising shared shuttles from the airport to CBD hotels for very reasonable prices, for my wife & I, less than 25 USD. You have to go to a pre-determined location and look for a guy with a sign, OK, been there, done that. I know these could mean we have to sit on a bus while we stop at a bunch of other hotels to let people off but we will have plenty of time and it's one way to see the city. Not sure what taxi fare is but I have seen everything from 25-35 USD all the way up to 120 AUD. I'm sure GetYourGuide is a broker using local
  6. We want to do this tour on July 14, yes, a Sunday. I would book in advance but I don't know the time of the tour to pick because we are doing other stuff. Am I likely to be able to purchase a ticket on the spot or are the tours likely to be fully booked. Thanks for any help!
