One of my golfing mates from down here, 'Big Terry O' , is on the Dawn Princess WC, doing the Sydney to New York bit. Bon Voyage to all.

I fear the buffet will damage Terry extensively.

Just looked up the itinerary and this world cruise has a great return journey from London.

Wouldn't be too keen on 8 sea days from Brisbane to Singapore though, as there are so many interesting ports in between.

I would think that there would be at least a few. Is there any site that tells us that sort of info?

Thankyou to all for good wishes. We have had a very active Roll which is a good sign for great company. A few are already making their way to Sydney, I'm off tomorrow, and there are already a couple on board from Auckland.

It should be an interesting cruise, even missing Egypt, with a few private tours organised as well. Can't promise my blog will be to the standard of Socram, always a good read, but I will try.

Regards
Pat T.

Have a wonderful time Pat. From the Roll Call it looks like you are in for a very active cruise.
We watched Dawn Princess sail past our piece of the coast last night. She looked glorious as it was a clear sky , a full moon and she sparkled on a glistening silver sea.
