  1. I very much doubt that NZ or Australian borders will be opened anytime soon.Our government has suggested that they won’t open until a vaccine is available,and I think Australia feels the same way.The two governments have recently had discussions re the possibility of travel between our countries once it is deemed safe to do so,but our PM has said it will be months away ,rather than weeks.It is possible that some South Pacific countries could be included. At the moment the focus is on promoting domestic tourism,the government has provided funding for this,anda campaigns are starting.Certainly we are not expecting international tourism until a vaccine is available. On a personal note ,my wife and I along with six other couples have a cruise around S.America on the Westerdam in October.We do not expect to be going. Stay safe, Richard
  2. Here in New Zealand,borders are closed to all except returning NZ citizens,and they are subject to a mandatory 14 day quarantine.Our government has hinted that these measures will be in force until a vaccine is developed. The country is in the third week of a four week, minimum,lockdown. Sources in our travel industry expect it could be several years before we get back to overseas travelling as in the past,subject to a vaccine. So,don’t get your hopes up about cruising any time soon.
  3. Maybe the cruise lines should be paying their employees a decent wage so that they don’t have to rely on tips to survive.
  4. We have sailed twice twice with PG and would not hesitate to do so again.Beverages,gratuitiesand specialty dining are included in the fare and the food is in my opinion a step up from HAL.
