  1. I find a small cross body the best. Keeps your hands free and you can put in other things such as glasses, patter, etc. as well if you want.
  2. Thank you very much for this information. Very helpful. When they say single entry visa does that cover you for 2 ports as we go to Nha Trang one day followed by Ho Chi Minh City the next day? By the way, if you have been to Cambodia, did you go direct or use Princess?
  3. Fleece, daylight robbery, price gouging - where do I start with Princess over this visa. 10 times the price is ridiculous. And what makes it worse is that US $55 is about $80 Aus so $160 just for us to step off the ship. Will have to see if I can get it cheaper going direct then.
  4. How long ago was your cruise as $6.00 is cheap. Princess wants US $55 for my upcoming cruise in February.
  5. I am on this cruise and also booked it as one 21 day sailing. My cruise history shows 2 credits as well so does this mean we will get a second mini-bar and second lot of internet minutes?
  6. I have often looked at the prices of 7 nights cruise around the Hawaiian Islands but found the cost per day quite high compared to what I would normally like to pay. Do people think this is reasonable at $4,690 per person inside twin? 13 night Tahitian & Hawaiian Island cruise from Honolulu to Papeete onboard Norwegian Jewel in an Interior Cabin Economy flights to Honolulu, returning from Papeete All onboard meals in complimentary dining venues & selected non-alcoholic beverages Wide range of on board activities & entertainment.

  7. No - online agent. If you want the OBC for the Cruise, 1st search the various websites as I only found it with one of them.
  8. Just booked Sea Princess ex Brisbane return on 17 November for a 7-night cruise up the QLD coast. Only $782 pp interior twin and managed to get $75 OBC as well.
  9. Can you please add 17 November 2019 - Sea Princess - 7 nights QLD coast ex Brisbane. Thanks.
  10. The 3FF you saw is different in Australia - we don't get the free gratuities. Instead we get a meal at a specialty restaurant and a $25 bottle of wine. Big deal. I would rather save the $824 I am looking at for tips on an Asian cruise I want to take that is included in the list of eligible cruises. If we cruise ex Australia our tips are built into the fare and if we cruise overseas we are excluded from promotions like the upcoming 3FF where you get the free gratuities. You Americans can sail the world and get free gratuities whereas we Australians cannot. So that is why a lot of us feel it is not fair and don't always pay them.
  11. Not available for Australians as usual. Maybe we will have to do our own promotion - just don't pay the tips to make up for it! This will get a few of you going no doubt.
  12. Now that our dollar is dropping against the US dollar, the cost of the tips for a 21 night cruise we are doing in February is getting quite scary - currently $852.
  13. We used a FCD to book an overseas cruise on Princess. Onboard currency will be $US. FCD we used was $AU. Length of cruise/cabin type entitles us to $125 each in OBC. Just looked at my booking which shows an OBC credit of US$125. Happy with that.

    Visa for Vietnam

    For my cruise in February Princess are now charging US $55 for the Vietnam visa - ouch for us Aussies with the dollar at 67c currently. Certainly seems to be far more than the other cruise lines.
