  1. Last time we cruised to Eden, we were unable to go ashore because of the predicted wind would make it dangerous for return tendering in the afternoon. The wharf would be a great asset. At the time there was going to be a bus (cost) provided by ship from the dock to Merimbula (which we had planned to do).
  2. We had a balcony on deck 13 as a guarantee booking for an obstructed balcony. It was a late booking with only guarantees available at the time and was at a considerable price reduction. Our room was in the area below the buffet entrance but we didn't have any noise problems. It was sometimes too handy to take the stairs up to the buffet for a little extra plate of food. We would book it again as it was a very handy spot and the only obstruction was a 10cm pole to the overhanging roof.
  3. Thank you so much, our grandchildren will enjoy.
  4. We are due to cruise on the Majestic Princess in December and this was on the website as being on this ship. I would also be interested to see a menu/price list if anyone has one.
  5. There are 2 marinas in Airlie Beach that different cruise lines use. Check which one your ship goes to if arranging a private tour. There is Coral Sea marina formerly called Abell Point marina and the other is at Port of Airlie. They are maybe 2kms apart. In February when in Airlie Beach on RC, this tour was offered. It was on a pontoon type vessel and I believe with very limited seating. But might give you an idea as to what to expect.
  6. Man O' Wars jetty for tendering when we were overnighting at Athol Bay with Cunard. Very convenient.
  7. Just read they were going to be late arriving into Sydney this am due to 7 m seas and some glass damage. Late afternoon check ins. Safe travels to all.
  8. Just saw her in the background of the news and hasn’t left yet. Departure time was supposed to be 4pm on Sydney cruise schedule. Sydney looks beautiful by night for her though.
  9. This was the booking for our guarantee room. I had not noticed when looking earlier that there were any other categories for guarantee balcony bookings. We only received our room placement approx 2 weeks before cruising.
  10. We have cruised balcony, deck 12 oceanview suite and inside virtual balcony to the south sea islands. Apart from the space and enjoyment of the deck 12 oceanview, we thought the inside virtual balcony was fine.
  11. We made a late booking on Ovation to cruise last year and chose a obstructed balcony guaranteed cabin at a very good price. We expected a deck 6 but we were given an obstructed balcony on deck 13. Very nice.
  12. Noticed Ovation is to cruise Sydney to Singapore end of Aus season, 20th March, 2021.
  13. At the end of the 2nd cruise, Noordam is porting in White Bay, maybe just checking fitting under the Bridge - ouch if she didn’t.
  14. Watching the news, saw this lady passing in the background. Was she at White Bay - no, at OPT and just backing up under the bridge because I guess she can.
  15. If you are lucky enough to have Joff Eaton as CD don’t miss his progressive trivia in 270. It’s very funny and you don’t have to be a player to enjoy.
