  1. I am so curious what the price difference is for the same cabin on an Aussie cruise when purchased from within Australia vs purchased from within USA. Princess pricing, no TA. Just compare cabin price apples to apples since Aussie prices I guess include the gratuities in the fare
  2. Only military ibc from Princess is refundable. Shareholder obc is not. Sometimes if your TA gives you additional obc it might be refundable
  3. This is fantastic. Thank you for taking the time
  4. It’s very obvious if one does any research at all that you can purchase the train tour on your own and pay much less. Except in the cases where the cruise line blocks out the entire train for certain days so no other option. Princess does this
  5. Agree with above. If you have not yet gone thru the old locks, do that. Sooooo interesting. We were on the island at xmas and had a great time
  6. We decided to rent a car and tackle on our own. Any recommendations for a path or itinerary is appreciated. Would like to see the countryside, geysers and boiling mud pools, blue/green lakes? Is there a forest? Would like to do a little moderate hiking. Not interested in Maori village on this trip. Thanks for any suggestions
  7. You guys are AWESOME! This is all soooo helpful! I may have to run my full itinerary by you for improvements and suggestions!
  8. thank you. Also need to walk if possible over to Melbourne arena for tennis. We are pretty mobile can easily walk longer distances
  9. Quest Southbank apartment. Hope this place is ok?
  10. i see your blog but having a hard time finding the post from Dec 2010?
  11. Thanks to everyone for all the great information. This helps a lot. Thank you for those that sent links also that are very helpful. So you need a Myki card for any time you take a tram (or bus?) If we use Skybus at all on our stay should we purchase tickets in advance? For taxi should we use cash or credit card? Thanks again!
  12. Also we are spending several days in Melbourne before the cruise. We fly into MEL and have plenty of time to get to our hotel in the southbank area. Would Skybus be a good option for that transportation?
  13. What is recommended for best/quickest transportation from Melbourne cruise port to MEL airport? There are 2 of us. We will be on Golden Princess disembarking on Wednesday February 12. We have a noon domestic flight out of MEL (to SYD) so want to get there with time to spare. I’ve read that there might be a lot of waiting time using Princess transfers. Is taxi best option?
