  1. Bob - I'm on the Golden Princess at end of October this year I can report back. But note: I'm in the steerage (aka inside) 😄 Though, MIL is in a Mini Suite with my partner sister so I can check that cabin out too.
  2. Depends on what part of the world you live in. When I cruise with Carnival in Australia there are a lot of lanyard wearers.
  3. Legend. Needed a good scrub and refit. The ship was filthy. Was a real disappointment after the Spirit. Hopefully, its in better shape now.
  4. Can't wait. I can remember being stuck in a airport waiting for my flight back to OZ which had been cancelled and coming across your blogs about five years ago and I read them all. Some several times now. I always look forward to October/November. Its like a new book being released.
  5. I've seen it plenty of times on Princess ships. I avoid trivia now on any cruise ship like the plague due that type of behaviour. I've seen cruisers berate staff over answers, pronunciations etc. I find went trivia is on its best time to have a coffee from the cafe 😄
  6. Be cheaper probably to stay on ship to Hawaii and get Jetstar back.
  7. 19 Night Sydney to Papeete Cruise on the Norwegian Jewel NC21-JWL-20210227-19-SYD-PPT Norwegian Jewel 19 Nights Sydney to Papeete Sydney Sat 27 Feb 2021 Great itinerary.

  8. I haven't done a gty on World Cruise. But done plenty of Gty on other cruises. I guess the main question you need to ask yourself is would you be happy with the worst cabin in the category.
  9. I looked at the itineraries. Few nice ones, then I looked at the price and though nope. I wait and watch to see if they drop.
  10. To send the names of the people involved that work for Cathay Pacific that were involved in the protests. I think this is going to get a lot worse. Some of the footage today, the escalation of violence has increased. An independent Hong Kong really ended in 1997. However, its only really dawned now on the people of Hong Kong, that China is only ever about one system, one Government. And the two system approach was a fairytale.
  11. Edited. Saw your response above. Bummer. Stewart Island would have been the highlight for me if we went on this cruise. Not many ships stop there.
  12. Thank you and thanks Coral for your prompt response.
  13. Thanks for clarifying Coral. I was waiting a response from you as your always on the ball with the Princess releases. Have you seen any of the schedules yet?
  14. Thanks for the information.I must admit I've yet to read an article. Only articles that would probably interest me are early sneak peeks of upcoming cruise schedules.
  15. Germany asked me to turn my laptop on when going through Security. Took so long and my connecting Paris flight was calling .. You cannot rush the Germans cause if you do they take twice as long.
  16. We staying at Heritage Hotel in Auckland in December. Also have stayed at Hotel Grand Windsor.
  17. If its a unique itinerary i.e only offer its once a year or occassionally then you be lucky to get a cabin. If its a well used cruise route which many cruiselines do then you can easily find some bargains (more so outside peak times i.e school holidays, xmas, Easter).
  18. That why I need to go on the little ship. They will not be with us forever unless you want to pay $$$$$$$$$$
  19. I travelled solo several times on Princess. They have solo gatherings. However, I never attended them.
  20. Just finished paying the deposit on the cruise. Little ship here I come.
  21. Little bit rough that day. Member we were up on Deck 18 having drinks haha
