Thanks, everyone, for the good wishes. They mean a lot to me. Carole and granny, I am sorry your cruising plans are on hiatus and hope for a speedy return to health and travel for you both. Nothing puts the kibosh on travel like health concerns.

That picture of the Golden Princess in Sydney is amazing. As I understand it, a huge portion of the passengers on a cruise that starts or ends in Sydney are Australians. But that probably doesn't keep the bankers in those office towers from feeling like tourists are invading. That ship looks like it has to let the air out of its tires to get under the legendary bridge. What a sight.It doesn't go under the bridge.

Currently watching the progress of Golden Princess - 43 nm from Sydney - and the Sydney Harbour webcam for a first sighting of the ship; due to dock at 9pm BST. Strange to think that we will be watching from London, England and you will be watching in Sydney at the same time; isn’t technology amazing!
I hope you have a wonderful and exciting (in the right way) season 8 cruising and I will be following along.
