Anyone skipped every port through choice?

Have fun, and behave.
We had fun, & behaved. Great day, but very hot. The cruise covered the inner harbour ie west of the bridge & so went into bays etc that are not on 'normal' harbour cruises. The vessel was the 'Rythmboat'.

No port stops, plenty of food & entertainment & no shortage of drinks, although they ran out of limes, so not so different to a sea cruise

Just to stay with the nautical theme, on Sunday morning we walked from Darling Harbour thru the city down to the Quay to take a look at Solstice & then caught the ferry back to Pyrmont - good weekend!!!

Good job, Mr walker. Glad you had a fabulous time.

About 5 years ago when we did the Baltic sea, there was a group of ladies who would never get off the ship. Used the port days to have the Lotus spa to themselves, getting their hair, face, nails etc done ready for dinner. At the time I thought they were crazy, given the amazing destinations we were stopping at. But having gone around umpteen times before, the thing they looked forward to the most was booting us all off at port.

I'm starting to see the appeal...

I will remember that much money on alcohol forever!

Now I just need to convince myself it is worth every cent for convenience alone!

Good luck, maybe book your self in for a detox session after the cruise straight away.
