  1. They will most likely be initially sailing at half capacity. 🤔
  2. They are advertising her as sailing from Auckland to Brisbane and doing cruises from Brisbane. Carnival will pay a fixed annual amount to the port for 15 years in return for preferential berthing rights at the new terminal. They will need to get a return on their investment.

  4. Sad for you but good news for us downunder.😁
  5. Looks great Lyle. No doubt the MIL will enjoy a change from the aged care food. 😋
  6. Realistic and optimistic? I cannot see the big 4 cruise-lines restarting in Australia whilst the pandemic is raging in the northern hemisphere. There is a stink around cruise ships visiting Australia after the Ruby Princess debacle. It will need the Federal Australian and State Governments to give the go ahead. Not happening any time soon. 😒 Having said all that, I have 3 cruises booked from October 2021. I will assess the situation when final payment is due.
  7. The cruise lines are very keen to restart services. The same cannot be said for the Australian Federal and State Governments. 😒
  8. You are right about showers in November, it is the start of the Monsoon season. With La Niña affecting Australia's weather this summer, who knows, we could have an early cyclone this year. 😉 2020 has been full of surprises.
  9. I'm sticking to my November suggestion, which is backed up by the official figures. Your recollection of cyclones might be hazy. I suggest you refer the link in post 2 to the BOM official web site. In 2019-202, it records 7 cyclones in March with 5 being classified as severe and only 1 that just suck into November (Severe Tropicial Cyclone Owen, 30 November - 15 December 2018). 2018 had 4 cyclones in March and 1 in November.
  10. If you are correct, there is nothing wrong with your memory. 😉
  11. The continuing bad news about the pandemic, does not signal a return to cruising down under any time soon. 😒
  12. I would choose November. See link in post 2 re cyclones.
