    Coral sea weather , sea state

    Thanks Sinbad, I,ll keep an eye on it. We have about 5 days till we get to noumea so it might calm down a bit. That’s a good web sight thanks.
  2. Has anyone heard from friends on board a pacific cruise/ New Caledonia cruise, about sea conditions right now, in light of the cyclone activity up there??we are heading up there on Tuesday. Thanks.

    Thursday Island

    The Fort and musium are on top of a hill, and bearing in mind the heat and humidity, better get a ride. Swimming, snorkling in crocodile infested waters is not recommended, hence all the signs with Achtung Warning on them.
  4. Shame about the toilet fiasco. We were on Explorer in July, and because of the cold weather, they held most parties in the Atrium. Unfortunately all the gents toilets on all the decks in that area were out of service, that was a problem when lots of people are drinking lots of booze. Despite all that, the ship, dining areas, food, entertainment were all excellent.

    Green outbound passenger form.

    Half a job government. Lets hope they do it at All international departure points in the near future. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. I just found out about the scrapping of the nuisance green departure form from tomorrow, 1st July. But only at airports. ?? Or at least thats all i can find out about on the web. Wonder why it doesn't include cruise ship departures. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  7. Hi, we're off on carnival Spirit next week, and was wondering if they sell ipads in the duty free shops ? Got garandkids going into high school next year and they have to have them.

    Hi, please add. Carnival Spirit, Nov 22. Pacific islands. Only cos Debsta seams to like this ship. Lol
  10. It seems to me that if it was as simple as not touching things with your hands, and not washing your hands, then gastro would be rife on all the ships sailing out of Australia. I was on voyager of the seas a few decembers ago and she too had a big gastro outbreak, the similarity might be that they have recently come down from cruising around asia and hygene there might differ from ours and bugs might still be lingering in a dormant state. Just waiting for unsuspecting ausies.

  12. Hi all, has anyone sailed out of Sydney recently on this ship, does anyone have any comments, good bad or ugly, or any tips. Thanks, Dave
