  1. We're planning on using UBER when we arrive at Sydney Airport. Is there good free wifi connectivity at Sydney Airport? Is any place better than others as we come out of arrivals customs?
  2. Thanks for the explanation of the maps. I, too, like to take photos of the maps to go with my album. I suspect the Navigator will have the new, improved system by the time we sail. Oh well. Greg
  3. There is a roll call started if you'd like to join.
  4. Could those of you that were on this cruise please identify the category of suite you booked and maybe a few comments about the suite, please? Also, OP mentioned "mapping system" and that you didn't like the one on Explorer. What are the differences? I want to thank everyone on this cruise who posted about their experiences. We are booked for this same cruise in 2020 and your insights are really valuable to me. We're scheduled for almost the same set of ports (not doing Devil's Island but adding Havana) so your comments about ports and excursions are really helpful. Again, thanks for all the wonderful information, Greg
  5. Guess I would weigh in on the "do a island stay in Fiji" side of things. A few years ago, we did a Tahiti to Fiji cruise on Paul Gauguin and a one week stay on the north side of Viti Levu in a self catering house near the Wananavu Beach Resort. Great snorkeling. Actually a Tahiti to Fiji cruise on PG and then a stay in Fiji post cruise would be my recommendation for a Fiji trip. Greg
  6. Thanks V_icki_e, appreciate you taking the time to respond. I was pretty sure that milkshakes wouldn't be included due to the NZ Creamery concession. DH loves a good shake and for $7.50AUD we'll give it a go. If good I'm sure we'll give it many goes. The couple with a shake and a mojito on the pool deck will be us. Again, thanks for taking the time to provide helpful information, Greg
  7. Yes, the NZ Ice Cream is on board (at an additional charge) so I was expecting the Milkshakes (or Thick Shakes) to be for an additional charge also. On the New Zealand Natural Ice Cream web site the flavors look really good so I'm optimistic that great ice cream products will be available at a reasonable additional charge. DH and I don't mind paying a bit extra for really good ice cream/shakes/sorbets. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Greg
  8. I want to apologized in advance as I posted this on the Princess Board; but, I thought I might get answers here also. I appreciate your patience. We have the PBP on an upcoming Australian Cruise on Sea Princess. The terms and conditions page on Princess' web site says that among the included beverages are "milkshakes (when available)." Does anybody know what that really means for an Australian cruise on Sea Princess?? I think Ice Cream is an extra charge but can they make milkshakes?? If so, any idea of what the charge is? If you tried them, did you think they were good? None of this is a deal breaker , just trying to manage DH's expectations

  10. Thanks for everyone's replies. DH is not Celiac, just gluten intolerant, so do not require US GF certification. We have found that DH can't eat French fries cooked in the same oil as battered fish or chicken, though. Jackie, thanks for the comment on updated menu in CR. That will help a lot. Glad to hear about "baskets" of GF bread at dinner and GF goodies at Tea. Greg
  11. We haven't been on Regent for a while; but, are considering an Amazon Cruise on Navigator. DH is now GF and I was wondering if anyone has had any recent GF experience? Especially at La Veranda in the evening (GF pasta available?). As an aside I've read some pretty horrible comments about Prime 7 on Navigator (meat is tough and crab legs are really just a pile of crabmeat?). Any specific comments would be welcome. Thanks, Greg
  12. I'd like to thank everybody for their replies. They've been very helpful. I appreciate the time you took to answer. Greg
  13. Our bank doesn't have reciprocity agreements with any Australian bank, I asked. As an aside, would a bank at Sydney Airport arrivals have a higher fee than in the CBD?
  14. Can one walk or can the local transportation (buses etc.) in these towns get one to most of the local attractions (Cable beach, ANZAC Museum, and such)? Thanks, Greg
  15. Does Sea Princess have "on demand " movies in the cabin? Son just returned from Ruby and said on demand had been installed there and loved it.
