  1. It is Sun class inside cabins, the longer narrower cabins ones that run across the ship, not down. I have been in them a few times on the Dawn Princess and have one booked on the Sun Princess. The cabin you describe is the cabins that run down the ship with an angled door when you walk in.........these are a different layout. We push the bed against the wall, and the drawers fit next to it.
  2. The picture they have for the Majestic is an inside on a Sun class ship🙄
  3. Norwegian Jewel and Serenade of the Seas are visiting Dunedin on the 26th December 2020. I have been there on the Diamond Princess and Radiance of the Seas was next to us, so assuming can only take two ships?
  4. I got the email as well, that's a bugger not being able to see your brother. The change doesnt bother us, have been to Dunedin before, so a new Port is ok it's Boxing Day anyway so I doubt much will be open. We cruised on the QM2 to NZ, I think you would enjoy the Cunard experience😊
  5. If cruising from White Bay, we stay in Darling Harbour, Pyrmont side. Taxi in the morning is 3.6km, over the Anzac bridge, about 15 minutes depending on traffic. Lots of cafes and pubs, the Maritime Museum, Star Casino. We have stayed at the Ibis, Novotel and Sofitel, also our timeshare, which is the Sebel Pinnacle. There is great parklands and walkways and the fish markets, such a great area to stay!!

    Phu My port

    It is about 100m from ship to the outer port gate. I have been to the port of Phu My twice, Sapphire Princess 2015 and Majestic Princess 2018, last August. Both times we have booked private tours and walked to the gate, last August we had 30 people in our group. Both times when arriving back, there has been a bus waiting at the port gate to shuttle people back to the ship, some of our group chose to walk, some took the bus. I guess it is different every time, perhaps next year when we stop there again we may not be able to walk.
  7. Didn't have that experience when we went, I would not have known who had been there before..... must admit not a lot knew about it. We dined two out of our 7 night cruise and had breakfast there a couple of mornings too.
  8. Don't forget to visit the Solarium Bistro, it's not a paid specialty restaurant but you need to book, well that's how it worked when we were on Ovation. We would have dined there every night, help yourself to Entrees and Dessert and the main is ordered via menu by the waiter. It's a Mediterranean cuisine with lots of seafood.and meat. The bistro is also available for breakfast, a nice change from the other venues.
  9. Yay, would have loved to do that repositioning, wish Princess had of told us all when all the other Princess itineraries came out, it sure was a last minute decision, selling all those other cruises then cancelling them.
  10. Probably Alaska, its around the same time as the Sun Princess we have booked Tokyo to Vancouver, May 2nd 2021 leaving Yokohama. We have booked for $1699, 17 nights, I am doubting the PP will have those prices😉
  11. Les, let Mic and I know what you are doing so we don't " let the cat out of the bag"😺 in February!!
  12. And if you have a few hundred OBC, its a good buy😉
  13. I will add to the Citizen Eco drive, bought mine about 8 years ago, it is still my everyday watch, still ticking away, never had a problem. Sorry can't remember the price back then, but with the combined discount of 20% it was a good buy.
  14. What a great review! Thanks Purple Traveller, another destination for the bucket list, your photos are amazing.
