    Solstice and Golden in Auckland 13 Dec

    Golden leaving at 4 pm
  2. Celebrity Solstice and Golden Princess are in Auckland today Golden at Queens and Solstice at Princes. In October 2020 Princess Cruises will transfer Golden Princess to P&O Australia, where she will introduce the Ocean Medallion technology to the Australian market. She will be renamed Pacific Adventure.
  3. Same as above. Posted twice for some reason,
  4. Link to Norwegian Jewels bridge cam... https://www.ncl.com/shipcams/jewelcam/fullsize.jpg?browser_popup=320x240
  5. Whats with all the smoke coming from Ovation of the Seas today ?
  6. Check out the World Cruises especially P&O and Cunard. HAL and Regent also do Grand Voyages that circle the Pacific.
  7. Its almost a shuttle service from Queenstown which is not far away as the crow flys , or in this case the planes. Its so close that they were talking about a monorail or gondala service at one stage......but a few hurdles as its a National Park.
  8. Yes thats true. Once a year a ship has to do a 360 spin to check the setting of the compass. It is normally done in a sheltered deep water harbour where they have plenty of room. We did it on Star Princess when the ships were still calling at Lyttleton. The harbour there was ideal for such a manouvre.
  9. Yes ,there are numerous small boats that cruise Milford Sound. Heres a link to the webcam at the jetty http://www.takeabreak.co.nz/webcams/197/milford_webcam
  10. Maasdam has an overnight in Tauranga today. 2 full days in port .Great chance to get out and explore.
  11. Ive never seen so many boats in Milford before. Must be high season. Ovation must have gone incognito,
  12. I think if you looked at most ships past tracks you would find something like this happens at some stage .. From Auckland to , for instance , Bay of Islands or Tauranga , it is only a 3 hour run , but they all take overnight to do it......they either slow down or do a few long slow circles.
  13. My guess is they have underestimated the demand from the Northern Hemisphere markets and have taken guarantee bookings that they have to honour. The newer ships are attracting a market that would not come on down before and cruise in the old "tubs"
