  1. Radiance being so much smaller than Explorer is exactly why we like it and had booked it for a now cancelled South Pacific cruise in February 2022. Feel free to send it back down under.🙂
  2. That still shows the cruise we were booked on that has been cancelled. I understand that Radiance will actually be in the Caribbean.
  3. Grahaminca, Where is the Radiance cruise in January 2022 supposed to be? We were supposed to be on it in February from Brisbane to the South Pacific but they've just cancelled that and I can't now find where Radiance is supposed to be after October 2021.
  4. We'd recently taken a leap of faith and booked Radiance of the Seas from Brisbane on 8th February 2022. I've just received an email saying it's cancelled. We chose that cruise because a) it covers my wife's birthday, b) it's from our home port and c) Radiance is the biggest RCC ship we want to go on. I've looked for alternatives and there's nothing for Radiance of the Seas after October 2021. Are they selling yet another of their smaller ships? There are also no RCC cruises in 2022 for Brisbane's brand new cruise terminal. It's not looking good for our future Royal Caribbean cruising (a
  5. We got a taxi from the Port gate (we were still on the ship with a night in port) to India Gate (equivalent to USD2). Then we bought return ferry tickets to Elephanta Island - make sure you're in the right queue, there are ticket windows to several other destinations as well. I'm not certain but I think ladies could use a shorter queue. On Elephanta Island you have to pay the entry fee in Rupiah cash but I think you can buy them online in advance. You can pick up a guide on the island but we had read up on it before we went so didn't bother. There's a little train that runs f
  6. 3girlsmom, Thanks for that. We're looking forward to our first Azamara cruise.
  7. We've bought an upgrade to a balcony cabin (allocated as 6085) and I'm a bit worried from a noise viewpoint that it's directly above Discoveries Restaurant. I've looked at the spreadsheet and it's not mentioned but I wondered if anyone had any specific comments?
  8. Sorry, quite correct. We leave home on 13th.
  9. I'd rank the major lines that we've done in this order: Cunard, HAL, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, MSC & Carnival. We've got 10 weeks to our first Azamara cruise but we're hoping that they'll top that list. Incidentally, we travelled from Bergen to Kirkenes and back on the Hurtigruten coastal ferry which we really enjoyed.
  10. I've been searching for any changes to Dubai's immigration process and not found anything. Although it's unlikely to be useful to people in this post, it is possible for visa free nationals to register to use the smart gates at the airport, instead of having to go through the manned gates. I can't remember if they had smart gates at the port although I suspect not.
  11. We did a Mumbai tour a couple of years ago with Amaze Mumbai tours and that worked well. When we're in Mumbai on Quest on 27th December, we're intending doing our own thing to Elephanta Island and maybe a bit of a wander in the afternoon. After we get off the ship the next day, we've arranged afternoon tea at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.
  12. Hamrag, Will you be on Quest? If so, we'll be boarding as you disembark. We're on the 13th December Dubai to Mumbai cruise, which includes our anniversary, Christmas and a solar eclipse.
  13. I have a lactose intolerance but I don't want to be on a lactose free diet on the cruise. This is because, apart from milk with breakfast cereals, I deal with everything by taking lactase tablets. Can anyone tell me whether lactose free milk is generally available at breakfast or will I have to complete a special needs form?
  14. HGC, Thanks for your reply and your efforts. We're on Quest's 11 night Arabia and India Journey so there definitely should be one. We've got a Dubai by night tour booked for the first night before we leave Dubai so, hopefully, it won't be then. We're just hoping that there isn't an escalation of tensions with Iran that lead to our cruise being cancelled (as P&O UK have already done).
  15. How do I find out when and what our Azamazing night is? I can't find any mention of it in the itinerary or shore excursions.
