They know about Yorkeys Knob, they were referring to the "Princess Cruises Itinerary" she had posted from the Princess site, it says Cairns.
And I get the table for two......we request that also, we only have dinner with others if we know them and arrange it
Having meals with loads of strangers isnt high on our list on a cruise either!!
Thanks Chez, now I know !! Re tables for two, each to their own, but we always get a table for 6 or 8 at MDR traditional dining and share tables at breakfast and lunch in Buffet or MDR, you see I am a big conversationalist and besides we have a table for 2 at home every day !! No way my better half would want a table for 2 anyway, she asks for a table of 10, but I wear her down to table of 6 or 8.

Yes!! I'm loving the blogs from this couple. I'm sure their cabin is a couple down from ours (we are on the next cruise to Tassy), I got worried about the noise from above the theatre but remembered there's not much chance we will be sleeping while shows are on we are usually up late. We also watched her leave Sydney on Sunday from the live webcam and I've been watching her movements on marine traffic since she was over in New Zealand.
I can't wait to board in 7 days!!

The Bloggers reported on Brisvegas yesterday, raining Koalas. And a bit of a bumpy night on the ocean, all part of the adventure.

Looking at bridgecam just now, bit of a swell and rock and roll happening as they head north. Should be a few empty chairs in the Horizon Court for lunch.

Had to smile that the taxi driver did not know the way back to the ship.

Not unusual in some of the Australian Capital Cities these days David. Whatever happened to the 'area knowledge test?'

Probably the same in Auckland or Wellington ? New arrivals from overseas, can't get a job, although they may be highly qualified in the country they came from, so go driving taxis or Ubers.

I got into an Uber last year in Sydney, the driver was an Iranian Doctor of Medicine who could not practice here without a lot more study and examinations, all of which cost money, hence the Uber job and they are not highly paid.

No doubt the Golden Princess crew will be alert as to any signs of the 6 trawlermen missing off the Qld coast, after their fishing boat overturned in heavy swells. Tragic incident.

How lucky was the bloke picked up yesterday morning by a passing boat?

Thought the Golden Princess would have had a rough ride when I saw all the whitecaps on the waves as I landed in Brisbane. There was thick cloud cover all the way from Sydney to Brisbane.

Looking forward to reading the blog.

Sad about the missing trawler crew at sea. The extreme weather conditions are making the search difficult. How lucky was the single sailor who treaded water once the boat went down, until he was picked up by a passing boat!

Just read their blog on the sea day yesterday, they had strong winds and a rough seas, the duct emerged to seal the cabin draws etc. As long as the bottles in the mini bar did not break. So the MTP (most travelled passenger luncheon) is now the MTG (most travelled guest luncheon.) Means the same, top 40 cruisers get invited. We have made it once, but a rough chance next year perhaps on Sapphire or Royal.

Hopefully the weather clears for them Les.
The MTG Luncheons and the appearances at the Captains Circle party would be a novelty at first but I would think that after attending lots on B2b2b's......it would become annoying, for me anyway. Not that we have that to worry about
I am happy with my few Elite perks and remain annonymous.
Our Golden cruise in September the MTG had about 750 days!!!

Good old duct tape comes in handy!

Doesn't really meant the same. "Guest" in lieu of "passenger". Who thinks up these crazy name changes? You can be a guest anywhere, including my house, but you can't be a passenger unless you are on a ship/flight. My dream is to be a passenger, preferably long haul.

Some pax love the glory Chez. The MTG luncheon is nice actually, provided one is seated next to a decent senior staff member, but as for the Captains Circle Cocktail party, don't even bother turning up anymore, watching all those poor people fighting for a watered down drink and trying to grab a savoury left from the last party.

I was really surprised at the Captains party on the Golden recently, we were undecided whether to go, but as Andy had thrown the suit in
The drinks were very strong, a few different cocktails, wines, beer, they even had platters of hot food being handed around, plus our two lovely waiters from Skywalkers were looking after us, they had our drinks lined up!!

Just curious why they think "guest" is better than "passenger".

Of course, it doesn't matter in the big scheme of things.

Like a cabin is a stateroom, silly term, who invented that, I know don't tell me, from across the Pacific. A place where you sleep on a ship is a cabin. Stateroom to me is like where the HM The Queen resides at Buckingham Palace.
