    Questions that don't make sense

    When I booked my first cruise I didn’t have FB or cruise critic. I just worked everything out for myself. Most of the time now I don’t bother replying to questions on FB because there is usually always someone who will argue with the answer I give. Saying that I am wrong and they are right.

    Booking with a TA

    We have a quote with an agent who was recommended to me. 49 nights river cruise + tour including return flights to London. She did the quote within a couple of hours $44061 for 2 people. I asked for spring or autumn and she quoted for June.She added counties that I didn’t even request. I guess some people are willing to pay that amount but it’s way over our budget.

    Day train trip to Blue mountains

    I live in the Blue Mountains. Katoomba would be too far. Another option might be the Glenbrook National Park which is 1 hour from the city. Glenbrook Village is quite nice with lots of cafes
  4. We enjoyed the cruise. There were a lot of whingers. A lot were comparing it to Princess. Some people complained about arriving late in Fremantle due to the medivac.
  5. We docked in Adelaide this morning on time

    Honolulu Hotels

    We have stayed in the Ilikai. Spacious rooms on the pink trolley stop. You can walk to the Ala Moana Mall
  7. Yes Mic. She was very upset. That was 8pm when she received the news
  8. Sorry my mistake. All aboard at 10:30pm departure 11:00pm. Unfortunately a lady in the lift has said she has to get off and fly home to Brisbane as her mother has passed away.
  9. We are on the Ovation now and the Kung Fu Panda is currently closed for renovations
  10. We are currently on the Ovation and have just arrived in Freemantle at 4pm. The ship is now departing at 8pm so we will have plenty of time to explore. The sick passenger was winched into the helicopter at 7am yesterday morning
  11. We both have pre existing conditions so can’t use credit card insurance now. I’ve used NRMA. I had a non medical claim in Europe and the full amount was paid quickly less the excess.
  12. It has been sold to CMV in Singapore
  13. Ovation of the Seas had 2 medical emergencies onboard so it had to return to Vietnam and is now scheduled to arrive into Singapore this morning now at 11:30 am. We were due to board at 12:30pm and our boarding is now between 3pm and 6:00pm today. We received an email from RCI yesterday. Ive read that some travel insurance companies don’t provide cover if the cruise is late due to medical emergencies

    Well they’ve done it again

    Yep. That’s what I ended up doing
