  1. Thanks! I'd take it that they're the transponders they're carrying, but they're not registered to a ship so you just see the beacon without it identifying the name, since they're just smaller local craft.

    That makes it hard. Being restricted to less than school holidays doesn't give a lot of opportunities.

    Another good school holiday deal. HAL Noordam, to the south pacific islands. 14 nights. 14 Jan. Inside is $1378/person - under $100/night. The best deal is Balcony - $1665, so $119/night.
  5. Yes, and the modern world is about outsourcing to established providers rather than building your own. When something is successful elsewhere they just adopt it rather than remaking the wheel.

    Sydney answer by year end

    Doesn't appear to be much of a useful side near to the existing OPT. You can see the harbourside land on sail past and there isn't a lot that isn't commercially built.
  7. Was thinking about that cruise. The one that got away.
  8. Could be small sightseeing craft. It is a Sunday, and also Summer, so number would be higher.
  9. Are you happy to rent a car? A fair few people do that to see the places they want there to suit.
  10. Beer's the same price as you saw on Anthem. Bit weird that you paid tips on Anthem. They would have been included if you booked here, so you either booked elsewhere, or paid extra above those included.
  11. Interesting placement of those cargo containers!
  12. May have been a navigational test/calibration.

    Only problem with 270 is the unconventional seating so many seats aren't that good for Pixels. Best to scope it out early so you know where you want to sit.
  14. Though offers are coming on other ships as much as well.

    Not so good for beaches and museums. But better for shopping and fish.
