  1. Borders in Oz are closed. Prime Minister said unlikely to open in 2021 (except for bubble areas) There issues with the vaccine. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9449677/Australians-hopes-overseas-holiday-year-dashed-AstraZeneca-Covid-vaccine.html Hardly anyone has had COVID19 here and there is no herd immunity. So interesting times ahead. I would suspect Morrision will keep the borders closed until the Australian population is vaccinated before opening them up. So that might creep into 2022.
  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of David. His contribution to this forum and to cruising will be greatly missed.
  3. I got some but I didn't read them. I also got a call yesterday from Princess Cruise consultant noticing that I had FCD in my piggy bank at Princess and was I interested in booking a cruise.
  4. Lets hope the rivers levels are not down. Would be a huge let down.
  5. Still waiting for Princess to credit back to my account the FCC deposits. They still attached to the cancelled Pacific Princess cruise. I'm not too worried about them as if I ever book another cruise with Princess they be apply those FCC as the deposit.
  6. Never been to Moomba. Too crowded. Also that birdthing been around for decades. I can remember being a kid in NZ and watching when they used to air it on TV.
  7. Nah. Les. You can't leave. We all have our ups and downs.
  8. I don't think that the pricing is too bad. Its got a high demand market of cruisers who love it. I want to do a WC too. I just have to wait until the right itinerary comes up on the WC. I probably only going to have one shot at dragging my partner on one. But its always been a huge bucket list goal of mine. It will do well on opening day for bookings. BTW - when is opening day for bookings. I still waiting for Princess to return my FCC back from the cancelled PNG on Pacific PRincess 😞. Still really gutted about that.
  9. I feel the same. Melbourne is like an afterthought. Grand is such a tired old ship too.
  10. Okay they look like the same old boring itineraries. Nothing special about the WC either!
  11. CDC only applies to the USA right? Has no jurisdication outside of the USA? What if Princess are looking at resumming in another region first?
  12. Except it never seems to be just five days with Victoria. This little gem hasn't been that clearly communicated ....:"The brutal five day long lockdown of the entire state of Victoria could continue for up to two weeks thanks to a sneaky detail in health directive legal papers". https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9255859/Disturbing-legal-means-Melbourne-Victoria-snap-lockdown-TWO-WEEKS.html
  13. Just keep monitoring sites and soon as you know the release date and time. Be up and phone Princess straight away to hold a cabin or put the hold on line. You can always transfer to TA later on if you wish.
  14. Thank you. I will try. I got a bit of a knee injury at the moment which doesn't help. But I might do some gardening and pick some flowers for inside the house. Its just been a looooooooooooooong year.
