Thankyou Stu....

It doesn't feel like I'm cruising up until our cruise critic bon voyage thread has started...

it is very exciting ... we have had a wonderful roll call with over 180 boarding in Sydney. Our first meet and greet is so big that they have assigned on of the dining rooms as our venue LOL..

There have been numerous lunches organised in nearly all states so everyone can get to know each other... we just had one on Saturday and there was a room of very excited people...

We have around 45 people coming to our night before cruise dinner in Sydney !!

I will do my best to keep the blog interesting and I promise no plugging superannuation funds LOL.... on saying that, I read the world cruise blogs religiously and I have been enjoying Jo's little videos that she puts up on FB... She writes well... I will apologise for my mistakes but I write like I talk... My brain is going faster than my poor little fingers and they can't keep up....

I will enjoy having you all along for the ride!!
