  1. Not really. We booked a similar deal in 11/21. 10 day cruise to NZ. We had a 'free' inside but paid for a balcony instead. Our total cost is approx. $1200 US(1663 AUD) for two of us for 10 days. We paid $432 deposit and will receive $600 AUD OBC (so basically $768 US (1003 AUD). Plus $250 AUD (180 US) to spend in Casino. My husband usually takes $300 US to spend in the casino for the week(total, not per day) so not having to budget as much will be nice as well. We also get free drinks for both of us while in the casino, as well as gifts and special things in the casino. and we don't have to pay gratuities like we normally do here (which would be $280 US) so for us, it is a great deal on a cruise, yet alone a cruise to New Zealand that is #1 on my husband's list of places he would like to go. We are hopeful we will get to go but if not, that is ok....worth the chance at this point and for this good of a deal. We haven't ever been overseas due to being busy with kids but now that they are getting older, we hope to be able to go more places....this would be a great start.
  2. You can definately still sail without a passport. After our kid's original passports expired we were waiting on the youngest to turn 16 so it would be good for 10 years instead of 5 so they have cruised without a couple of times. We have never needed it luckily. Definately get a certified copy of any birth certificates sent in so you will for sure have those. I am hoping to get my kid's new passport apps sent in once things start to open up again now that they are all 16+.
  3. It was $8 pp each way for 2 people, $4 pp for 4+ people each way. Take your own snorkel gear....it isn't great there but parallel to the beach between Carambola and Shipwreck you will see some fish. There were a lot of sea urchins when we were there a few years ago. Definately not great snorkeling on this island.
  4. From port to San Cristobal is about .5 mile. some of it is slightly uphill but nothing bad. I have MS and while I get around decently, I don't do well uphill or stairs and I can mange it all right. The trolley takes about 15-20 minutes I would think depending on traffic. I am not sure as we have always walked, the trolley's tend to be pretty full a lot of the times but they do have buses too so be sure to stand at a trolley sign so you can get on either. It is about a mile walk from San Cristobal to El Morro...that is pretty flat though. It is about 1.2 miles back to the ship from El Morro, mostly down hill.
