  1. Well, I think that just about does it for me. I will now look forward to a bit of sanity in my life for the rest of my life. I know forums for what they are but I have now decided I do not need them. I will now delete CC from my favourites and in the classic words of the final episode of M*A*S*H - 'Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.'
  2. Surely you've got to be kidding. Those of you that have not heard of 'early mark' before are you really Australians?
  3. I think anyone with cruises booked for this year would be a little nervous, however these comments are all just our own opinions. No-one (probably not even our own governments) really knows what its going to be like in 3 or 6 months time. For those who have made bookings for this year, I trust all will be well but I will hold off for the time being. Best wishes to you and keep safe.
  4. Probably like everyone else I have been keeping an eye on cruises for later in the year and also their prices which would appear to be very good at the moment. I'm not confident at all that we will be doing any cruises before the new year. I'm not sure our government will risk opening the borders much before the end of the year. In some respects we are fortunate that we are an island. It is probably easier for us to control our borders than it is for European countries.
  5. Hobbyfamer2. You need to make sure you take the comments in the circumstances they were given. If you don't want to obey our rules, then yes please go home - we don't want you. If you are not prepared to obey our rules, then we will not be disturbed about being off your bucket list. People are just not taking this seriously enough. It seems to be a case of 'it will never happen me'. Well one day it might.
  6. Yes, when I advised my bank that I was going overseas I gave all the information online.
  7. Yes. I am a retired banker and know how important this is. I always let them know where I am particularly if going overseas. Also when I caravanned around Australia a few years ago, my bank contacted me when I was in Western Australia about a possible fraudulent issue with the credit card and suggested I go into the local branch at my next overnight stay to sort things out. It was important so it all worked out well.
  8. I must say I have read this with a great smile on my face. With your smart comments about 'hype' etc. you will help our cause by getting caught one day and you will have no-one to blame but yourself. Happy travelling.
  9. I was in Noumea last week (for the second time on a cruise) and was not asked to produce anything about insurance. I usually have a copy with me but I certainly do not take it ashore with me.
  10. I think pre-cruise selection could be beneficial to both Princess and the passenger if they limited pre-cruise selection just to swapping the complete minibar setup to coffee 'cards'. A clean swap only. Many passengers do just that - quite simple really.
  11. Thanks. That's what I thought but reading bmc alabama I was getting a different interpretation.
  12. I suppose one day it will happen, but I have taken a letter from my GP listing my medication and have been prepared to show it at all times, but in all my overseas trips (cruises and others) I have not been asked to show it either overseas or coming back home to Australia even though I always declare that I am carrying drugs. Yes, I am usually asked if the drugs are just for personal medication. But I have never been asked to show either the letter or the medication.
  13. So please just explain this to me. From what you are saying, if husband and wife are both Elite, in swapping out the mini bar setup, do they get the equivalent of 4 coffee cards (two each)?
