MAJESTIC PRINCESS - 24th August - Shanghai to Sydney

Recommended Posts

The equivalent cabin on port side is E424, it is 4 up from us and is one of the angled balconies with the largest balcony, great pick!!

Just a quick question, I am in E436 on the next cruise, so is your cabin next to that? Question being , is it very busy/noisy outside the cabins being so close to the lift area? First time I have been so close to the lifts.

 

Thanks .

Your cabin is the one with the balloons, you can see the lift area on the left.

The cabins ard well soundproofed, perhaps a little more noise.

Not much to tell so i wont bore you with our daily routine of sleeping, eating, watching movies, we did see one in the Princess theatre yesterday, and lunching with friends etc

 

We are passing the islands at the top of Australia, very scenic today.

 

Last night we had the Captains Circle party, they had 3 of them yesterday and a couple last formal night. Ours was at 7.15pm.

About 1012 Elites onboard, more platinums, cant remember the rest, the watered down Cosmopolitan went to my head haha

 

Drumroll.......Captain announced on our arrival in Sydney there will be about 1.5km of flares lit up like a runway for our arrival through Sydney harbour and drones. It will be dark but we will be up.

We are live on Sunrise as well......so not sure if they are onboard from Brisbane or just live from their studio, or they will board when we dock, we shall find out.

Perhaps someone at home has been watching Sunrise and has* more info.

At least that makes us a little excited to come home........might have to hog one of those cabanas friday night, that is the only place on this ship to get a forward view unless you have a forward cabin or are the Captain.

 

I have only just started on Andy's 500 free minutes and will have my internet in Brisbane for the day, so we have done well.

 

To answer a few questions

We depart Brisbane Thursday at 6pm.

I have posted the patter

I have posted the duty free drink prices for those that asked.

(Sorry if it is not clear, i can post prices individually)

Hi Chez,

What sort of adapter is needed did you say American and Australian, !!!

Sounds like you had a wonderful day in Darwin, we really liked it their too.

I did book the crown and grill restaurant but hav seen we can cancel it on board ship and ge the credit on board,if their that noisy I don’t want to go I like to relax over special meals, maybe exchange to another restaurant.

Thankyou for all your info will look forward to hearing about it all on Saturdayxxx

Thank you, David. This is a beautiful region - islands, reef, tropical waters, sunshine - what more could you want!

Elsie, Us and Australian, and two USB beside the bed. You wont need an adapter if you dont have much to charge.
