  1. I would highly recommend booking the Norway fjords cruise, it is probably my favorite of the 14-15 cruises I have taken. My husband and I did the five-port itinerary (in and out of Southampton) in early May 2017. The scenery was breathtaking, both on land and while cruising on the ship (Eclipse). We had some adventures: Bergen (took funicular up to enjoy the view and there are about 10-12 hikes to choose from...we hiked for about 3-4 hours and enjoyed stunning views), Flåm (2-hour hike to a waterfall on our own and then a 3-hour ferry ride through the fjords), Geiranger (booked incredible snow-shoeing excursion on our own, one of the best days of my life with great views), Ålesund (walked around and hiked to viewpoint- a purposeful ‘down day’), and Stavanger (Celebrity excursion of hiking Preikestolen- Pulpit Rock=incredible). Norway is a stunning country!
  2. Hi David, remember me from last year's Great Barrier Reef cruise discussions? You gave us so much information for our 3-30-18 GBR cruise on the Solstice (w our daughter who was studying abroad in Australia) on which we had a WONDERFUL cruise. I was just thinking of you the other day and wondering if you were on your New Zealand cruise....that must be next year. Your itinerary for this cruise looks GREAT; I wish my husband and I had joined this cruise- we are really 'feeling' another cruise this time of year. We did the 14nt on the Eclipse Jan 7-21, 2018 and the itinerary was almost identical to yours. We LOVED the ABC islands especially. Hope you have an excellent and tropical time on the Reflection. Our next one is on the Edge in early April, but we are always looking for something else- and may add on something to make the $600 airfare from MSP to FLL seem more worthwhile. Anyway, Bon Voyage and I wish you and your family well.
  3. Hello again, mahdnc! We are so grateful, too, for your time & efforts and great photos to document this cruise. Only 12 more days til we board the Solstice on March 30, and along the past few weeks, you have really helped our excitement factor to grow! Plus, you have provided clarification by answering a few questions along the way- Thanks! It's been nice to read, too, from the perspective of our similar family situations (a couple who are traveling with their young adult children - or in our case, singular child- just one of our daughters). Theresa (the one studying at the University of Newcastle) spent last weekend in Port Stephens, Australia taking her open water certification tests. She is now even more excited for the GBR! Also, she talked us into joining-in on our week in New Zealand first (it didn't require much convincing, she's a good kid)...so she will meet up with us in the Auckland airport on Thursday, March 22. We'll drive around and tour North Island together for a week, then we'll fly to Sydney for the Solstice cruse. I'm excited for your family to cruise NZ in two years. In the meantime, I wish you well
  4. Great review and photos and explanations! We are soaking it all up, as we get ready to board the Solstice on March 30. We plan to be on the 400-person boat out of Port Douglas too; it was awesome to hear that the sea life was incredible to see. Are you using a GoPro camera or something else underwater? I like how you think, too. After some of the cruise excursions (especially those where we are physically active), we always yearn to be back 'home' on the ship and enjoying showers, food, and alcohol. That Conundrum wine is absolutely one of our favorites. We tasted it at a local bar that had a wine tasting a few months ago, and we bought two bottles for a special proce of 2 for $35. We now wish we had bought 22 bottles- especially at that price. The Conundrum white is tasty, too.
