  1. Yes, I think if they take cruising out of Fiordland, I see a loss for Dunedin, as it is an on-the-way or on-the-way-from port. I guess the itineraries would become Wellington Picton Christchurch Napier Tauranga one way or the reverse. I love Dunedin and my good friend Ross Cardus will surely suffer.
  2. Good luck to all over there. Just glad our firies can be over there to help... it's not so long ago when they were flat out here and help came for them. Aside form their work, I trust they can experience some good old Canadian hospitality!
  3. And only once per day. No idea why someone would want to go shopping more than once per day. We have joined the rush to home delivery from Coles/Woolies. Works well & it seems almost like Christmas when the shopping arrives 🙂 Next week maybe I'll need a delivery from Uncle Dans 🙂

  5. Hey Lyle, I read that we have sent a contingent of Aussie firefighter to Canada to help out over there - hope you've got plenty of beer!!
  6. Yes, never really considered law when at school & became a scientist... cost myself a lot of money I guess 🙂 Have a long-time friend who is our lawyer. Last year we met with him re possible move into a over 55's place. He gave us some advice as friends and basically left the legal aspects aside. We got a 'mate's rates' bill for $880 😮 Should have invited him to dinner at the most expensive restaurant in town & had a chat - would've been much cheaper!
  7. Mum is 86 and lives independently in a retirement village here in Penrith. She proudly told me she got her 2nd AZ shot last week. Shots were arranged by the village, so they only had to book & go to the on-site medical clinic - they have a visiting doctor. Her 2nd shot was scheduled at 12 weeks after the first. She has told me that there are a lot living there that won't get the shots. We have arranged her first Coles grocery delivery for Saturday, so she's looking forward to that. If we could get her on the internet she could order for herself 🙂
  8. The other option offered was for a transfer to the following year '23 within a 4 weeks window. There is not QLD coastal listed and the cruise that covers the same time (from 26th Mar) is Southern NZ. I love cruising NZ, but late Mar/early Apr would be too late in the season weather-wise for NZ for us. Anyway, we don' t have to decide immediately.
  9. I was born in late 50's and have been truly fortunate to have lived a life in good times, perhaps the best times to have lived in. During the last 18 months or so I have heard people complain about how hard they have it & often wonder how they would have coped living in the first half of the 20th century with Spanish flu, two world wars and the depression, along with diseases that we don' t have any longer. Give my regards to your Dad for me.
  10. One of the people at the wake was reported to be the elderly person reported as a death this week. And then, as I understand it, one family took the virus home from the wake & now a whole apartment block in Blacktown is in lockdown. There's no fixing stupid selfish people.
  11. Yes I was thinking that if they were to extend validity to end of 22-23 season we would maybe let it ride. We would want to be onboard early April for our special event, well special event 2 years later 🙂
  12. Chilli, the Eclipse cruise, well originally the Solstice cruise in '21, was a SPECIAL occasion for Tracey & I, that has sadly come & gone - well, we still had the occasion, just the cruise to celebrate didn't happen. We originally were happy to let it ride to next year, but now it would be '23, so maybe we just need to move on on that plan. It is just a deposit. We still have a substantial FCC with RC for our cancelled Apr 2020 Voyager cruise which we need to address at some point. I have actually lost track on the current validity on that one as they have just continued to
  13. Just received notice from Celebrity that Celebrity Eclipse Aus/NZ cruises are cancelled thru 17-April '22. So that just confirms for us for our QLD coastal cruise Mar 26 is gone! We had only paid deposit, transferred from Solstice 4-Apr '21 so we will take the refund offered. They are offering 125% FCC good thru 31-Dec 22 or a move to same cruise in '23 (or within 4 weeks of the original date in '22), but I think it is time to reset on cruising until some normality returns.
  14. I didn't immediately think of the man of many faces, but I must say I straight away thought that it may be someone from here on the Aus/NZ board when I read Brandee's posts. Anyway, it sure took them a long time to find their 'evidence' whoever they may be
