  1. Is there any news out there about NZ cruise ship ports being open or closed or for how long. I saw a few pictures of Hawkes Bay and they looked bad. Reminds me a lot of a few weeks ago here in Northern California. We just don’t get much news here on down south.
  2. Thanks Jean C. We will get some cash for our days in Auckland and ports along the way. Looks like the nz$ is strong agaist the us $. When we booked, the exchange rate was showing 1.70 to 1.00, but now saw 1.42 to 1.00.
  3. We are flying in at 6am in the morning and wondering how to have local currency available for luggage cart Uber/taxi, etc? Is their a money exchange service at airport at reasonable rates? We will be staying in downtown area for 4 days before cruising on Saturday evening. We plan on using credit card for bigger purchases, like tours, meals.
  4. Are small steamers still allowed by HAL? We’ve used before but its been several yrs. Does the wrinkle out spray really work? Thanks. 42 days!
  5. We are cruising from Auckland down around to Tasmania and back up to Sidney in late March-Early April and trying to figure out how hot or cold we can expect it to be? Taking light rainproof jacket and at least a couple of henley long sleeves. Are we good? Need a heavier jacket? We know how to layer. We’ve seen lots of reports on cold weather and high winds, missed ports, and this is summer!
  6. Thanks Shmoo. After more research I found this long cruise has been on theropp call for 2+yrs due to cancellation and their trip was transferred foward to 2023. So a lot of peoples have been on here for a while.
  7. When I recently searched for our upcoming cruise (3/35/2023 14 day Auckland to Sydney) on roll calls, I found one listing but all the responses were from cruises in 2018-2021? No other way to look for a shorter part of an upcoming cruise?
  8. First cruise to Aus and Nz. For 14 day Auckland to Sydney on Noordam Mar 24, 2023, will we have to tender anywhere? Does’t say on itinerary.
