  1. You will enjoy Taronga Zoo, which is a great place to see Australian birds, as well as animals. Take time to enjoy the wide variety of birds in large walk through bird cages, as well as the live bird show. I see birds there I can never spot in the Australian bush.
  2. Bon Voyage Sandi, What a wonderful itinerary on a small ship, Pacific Princess! Hope the high waters have gone down in Venice and you have smooth seas and good weather in the Mediterranean. Happy Thanksgiving. What a lovely bon voyage thread, Kazu.

    Ideas for trips in Yorkeys Knob and Cairns

    Cairns Botanical Gardens are a tropical paradise, which would be of interest for visitors from UK. In addition I find visitors are fascinated by the Cairns foreshore.

    Tender Unloading Accident on Maasdam

    Well Done! Shows that it pays to shop around. Can you book your seats prior to flight? Have you tried Insure and Go or Tick for quotes?
  8. A holiday at the beach, in a beach house, for your extended family sounds like the perfect solution for school holidays.
  9. That seems strange. Is that for the same size cabin, with a cot?
  10. I think in this instance the ship would wait if a lot of passengers are late getting back, as they are only cruising a short distance to the next port of call. I have seen it on a cruise where an accident blocked the only access road.
  11. Probably not. Depends when all aboard time is. Could be 5.00 pm for 6.00 pm sailaway.
  12. A better outcome would be for common sense to prevail, with cruise lines, when cruising between Aus and NZ, not insisting on 6 months validity of passports, at the end of cruisesl After all, NZ doesn't require 6 months when Aussies make land visits.
