  1. AUD is fine or you can use USD if you feel like it but as you are from here probably stick with your home currency it is easier.
  2. On the Grand I did find they did had Laphroaig though only a single bottle tucked away in the Explorer's Bar. There were a couple of other whisky's to be had that were not on Ocean so checking out the bars is your best option but if you are looking for peated don't hold your breath....
  3. Yes it is new, we had no issues having Lobster Benedict for breakfast on our cruise in January if we asked in advance and it certainly wasn't an upcharge item...... They are always looking for ways to wring another dollar from passengers it seems.
  4. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈDunno, we send the message and it magically disappears. I am guessing the same person who comes to collect trays/dishes as it is in the same category?
  5. There is an option now on the app to notify that you have laundry ready to be picked up that you can use rather than waiting for your steward to collect during their rounds. Similar to room service.
  6. After touring some of the crew areas I am pretty sure the crew don't like ducks πŸ˜‰
  7. I gave up and just used the web version, it still works properly πŸ™ƒ
  8. Even opening and scrolling to the end on the new app won't let me sign it off 🀬
  9. Yes it has been removed from ours as we were rebooked while we were onboard the Grand a fortnight ago. Upside is we have an extra $600 OBC to offset the cost πŸ˜‰
  10. As someone who has to fly to catch almost any cruise, we will always pick any other port ahead of Melbourne. Honestly it is the biggest pain in the butt we have come across to use so if we have to fly anyway we go elsewhere.
  11. Who was following Grand through the sounds today? Couldn't quite make them out through the mist but they looked to have a dark hull.
  12. I am hoping Melbourne can actually supply stock this time! Pretty sad to see the ship running short on a 6 day cruise due to non delivery at the last resupply. Maybe one of the reasons they are cutting away Melbourne?
  13. There are at least two on Grand at the moment that we know of. This one we found and another, who knows how many more ?
  14. Listening to quite a few people on Grand this trip and it seems one of the downsides to the packages is the inability to use the benefits. This being a 6 day leg there is no vacancies for any of the specialty restaurants leaving plenty unable to use their 2 included booking with thier package. Lucky we are doing 20 days so no dramas for us.
  15. The trick to prevent that is to just continue on home πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  16. Happy New Year all! Here is hoping that 2024 brings much joy and happiness to everyone.
  17. Looking good so far, how do you rate this year compared to last year? Have you had any luck with the next leg?
  18. We head off in a week so the new app can wait until we get back I think.....
  19. Like sav blanc drinkers will drink chardonnay or pinot grigo same same πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ all sour white grapes? πŸ˜πŸ˜‰
  20. Would you mind having a look at what whisky's are available onboard as you wander around?
  21. Would be so happy if your were the next sitting and won the wet seats......
  22. Mrs Womble would be happy if they were on the menu every night πŸ™‚
