  1. Hi Leigh, Thank you for all your help. Will be in Brisbane next month so will see what is/is not provided
  2. Hi Leigh, when I spoke to RCI (probably a central office overseas!), I was told they do not provide shuttles from the Multi us terminal ( a tempory one for mega ships). she had no answer for my question of how over 4000 passengers were going to get to the city 25 km away.....;-) RCI probably do provide shuttles from the dock that is closer to the city....not from this Multi Use Terminal 25 km away. looks like a private shuttle for us or a day onboard. many thanks again for your help.
  3. Hi Leigh, thanks for your informative reply. I called Royal Caribbean and was told they do not provide shuttles so I'm assuming these are private shuttle companies (good business for those companies!). thanks.
  4. our upcoming cruise will make a stop at Brisbane. as we are on a mega-ship (Ovation of the Seas) it will dock at a temporary dock which is 25 km away from the city centre at an industrial port area. the good news is that a large terminal is currently being constructed with the opening date for late 2020. our options are a tour with the ship or to stay on board, we tend to explore new cities on our own but it looks like doing this in Brisbane will not be as easy as we'd hoped.
  5. there is a store that sells alcohol/wine etc at Circular Quay (Wharf 3 ,I think) prices could be higher here though used wineselectors many years ago for delivery to our home (not hotel)
  6. thank you for all your replies. I didn't realise that the port was so far away from the CBD! what is the train fare or bus fare to the city from Wynnum? I have spent about half an hour on the Translink site (for Brisbane) and was not successful in getting this information. we were looking forward to seeing Brisbane but might now consider either staying on board (what a shame to do this!) or just wander around Wynnum.

    Vietnam visa

    we are considering a cruise on Quantum of the Seas which will visit two ports in Vietnam. we are Australian passport holders. can someone who has traveled on RCL confirm the prices that they charge for getting a visa when on board? is it still US$6/person? is there a price difference if you are sightseeing independently compared to going on a ship's tour (as mentioned for Celebrity ships)? many thanks in advance for any information/advice.
  9. Hello, would appreciate some help for the port of Brisbane.... we've just booked on Ovation of the Seas that will stop in Brisbane for the day at the Multi Use Terminal. I read that the terminal is 23 km away from the city centre. Has anyone docked at this terminal? What are the public transport options (ie bus) from here to the city? Does RCL provide shuttles? At what cost? Many thanks in advance for any advice/tips.
