  1. We departed the ship Sunday morning as scheduled, 8:00AM. Enjoyed the ride through the mostly residential part of Fremantle. Beautiful!. The Perth airport was a breeze, almost deserted. Our flight to Melbourne wasn't until 2:00PM so we relaxed in the Qantas Business lounges until then. First in the domestic lounge and then in the international lounge when it opened at about noon. The Qantas people were helpful and cheerful. It was a pleasant experience and the lounges were amount the nicest I've ever seen. Food and drink, good and plentiful. Flight to Melbourne smoothe
  2. To scrapnana and others. the Perth airport is a breeze. No lines at 9:00 when the first transfer group arrived. You could possibly be only 15 minutes from arrival at airport to the gate. There were no porters at the bus stop. A coin op place to rent a trolley for your luggage is nearby. Visa tap works. Swipe didn't work for another man who tried to get a trolley. Good luck Jim
  3. We arrived Fremantle about 7:00 AM and the expected disembarkation at 11:00 turned out to be more like 3:30 for the first wave ashore. The second group was supposed to depart at 10:00-10:30 PM but was forced off the at 6:00-6:30 PM. Many folks made made hotel reservations in anticipation of next day flights up to 1:00 PM. Australia refused to allow that so hotels bookings canceled. Those passengers were going to be required to leave the ship anyway and go to the airport. Later the government relented and said OK you can stay overnight. Now nobody had hotel reservations.
  4. Note to Kindergirl. We have not been told of any possible problem upon arrival back in Ft. Lauderdale nor of any termination of the cruise. There is speculation on the ship among passengers that both might be an eventual possibility.
  5. India and Sri Lanka have now been canceled. India because of visa problems and we were denied entry in Sri Lanka. Ports added in Australia; Broome, Exmouth, Geraldton and overnight in Fremantle. La Possession, Reunion also added. We have heard that there were problems in Reunion with demonstrations and rock throwing at cruise ship guests. Suspect Reunion will be canceled and that this will not be the last change. Jim
