It's still there.

Sometimes you have to search the whole of Oz to find the right cruise.

Thank you Sinbad - I finally figured it out - and should have done so earlier if I had my wits about me. Appreciate your help

As much as I’m tempted I won’t get this one as I realised when looking at it we’ll be in the middle of the Pacific on Crystal Serenity at that time. It we weren’t I’d definitely jump on this one

I’m looking for bargains like this to give some other lines a try. It pays to have flexibility to do things at relatively short notice

Great thread and thanks to all the contributors

I’m still kicking myself I didn’t pick up on the tip on where to find this one earlier - just wasn’t thinking straight last night

I find that a great special comes along after you have locked in your plans to do something else so that you have to say, 'I really want to do it but can't'.

Loved my 2 little B2B Cruises on Pacific Dawn earlier this year - she had been extensively refurbished apparently - my first experience of her!

I enjoyed my cruise on her and that was before refurbishment.
