  1. Hello, I thought as much, apparently Princess are threatening to sue the agency if they honor the price, so a case of too good to be true.
  2. Hi all, A very interesting price debacle has recently occurred locally . The local RACT magazine advertised a 35 day syney-hawaii return on sea princess for $3500, my MIL went to book, only to be told that Princess had supplied the wrong price to the agency and were not going to honor it, and the price was actually $6000. Has anyone else had this happen and what were the outcomes. In my limited understanding, if something is at an advertised price, the consumer is entitled to it at that price. Thoughts? cheers maree
  3. I have to agree with S&D with most of what was said. we had an extended family group aged 75-16 . The older ones quite liked the ship, its certainly fitted out well, and is relatively easy to navigate ( one of our party is wheelchair bound). and we found the service wonderful with the staff very helpful, although some night in the main dining room drinks service was a bit slow. we booked traditional dining so our party of 10 could be seated together, and this worked well for us.But as with previous comments, seating was hard to find particularly in the piazza,. The younger ones in our group said that they would have to think twice about sailing on a princess cruise, as there were not a great deal of evening entertainments for their age group ( they really liked the comedy clubs on carnival), although this could have been a reflection on the itinerary ( new zealand) with an older demographic, when compared to our previous sailings in the south pacific. Any way just my 2 cents worth
  4. Hi Holiday junkie, we were on majestic in feb this year, and found could only purchase internet packages on board, no pre pay available. Hope that helps
  5. Hi, whilst i have not been to amdee island ,I have been to escapade island and resort on a private tour and found it to be one of the best days of my life. The resort is gorgeous and you gt full run of the pools and the lunch was really lovely, then a group of us with our guide went snorkelling to see the turtles in the sea grass, and they were everywhere. Not being much of a snorkeller, I thoroughly enjoyed this, and seeing the turtles that close was truely memorable. We were collected from the ship by coach and taken to the ferry and after about 20min were at the resort. It was a very enjoyable day, one i would gladly repeat if we get back to noumea. On their website it is now around $140 AUD. (gateway tours noumea) Hope that might help. Maree
  6. even tassie has been exceptionally warm with constant days in the 30's, normally might get one or two days and then it would drop but its been pretty consistent.
  7. There are quite a few pet friendly options in tassie, depending on whether your air b n b, or motor-homing,/camping. my parents are grey nomads and travel everywhere with their maltese cross, and they find the only drawback is you cannot enter the national parks with a dog, so freycinet would be out, as would the cradle mountain overland track, but still plenty to see in my gorgeous state. cheers maree
  8. For me its traffic flow is important, as we have a son with mobility issues, also are certain areas congested. like public spaces, bars, do you have traffic through resturants when your having a meal. what are the layouts of the rooms, what type of power points do they have and how many. Options for dining, do they have fixed time or anytime, what are the gym facilities like, is there an outdoor walking track, ratio of staff to guests. i agree that things like food and service can be very subjective , but getting an overall impression of whats available doesn't hurt either, especially in areas that are likely to be used by the majority, like the MDR and buffett, as in the range of options available. Just my two cents worth.
  9. Yes, I read on your review you were in my region . Hard to watch the waist line with so many yummy options. Glad you enjoyed your time in my home state. Cheers maree
  10. YUM YUM, left over sliced hot cross buns go down a treat in the ol' bread and butter pud, its my favourite way of eating them.
  11. Yea gods, they have drop bears. I didn't realise we exported.
  12. Between this thread and the meat pies thread I seriously have the munchies, thinking eggs on toast with lots of butter, for tea tonight.
  13. Pita the poor sot who has leven it too long to have their say. Id like to panko everyone for their puns, been a good roll. Slight change of track, how do folks like their bread, i like mine as french toast or the old bread and butter pudd. Cheers maree
  14. Wasn't he the one that met with a sticky end, or was that the younger brother? Loved that series was very upset when the knocked off Travis Fimmel, he was ver easy on the eyes.
  15. Wow, I had no idea that they have expanded their services. Being a bit on the back foot in tassie, we only had uber roll out late last year.Are Uber operating wav in sydney and melbourne? Ta Maree
