  1. This from the Azamara forum: Just got information that we are being redirected on the present cruise. We will be in Dunedin, NZ tomorrow and will turn north after that staying on the east side of the South Island to avoid Cyclone Uesi coming into the Tasman Sea from north east. Our new ports are Akaroa, Kaikoura and New Plymouth before heading straight for Sydney. We will arrive Sydney one day early on the 22.nd. Our lost ports are Oban, Stewart Island, the Milford Sound and the Fjordland, and we also will lose the overnight planned for Hobart. Slightly sad that we miss out on the most exciting ports, especially Fjordland, but have to accept that safety comes first.
  2. Can you share what you did for the day please. Any advise on such a DIY day would be great.
  3. That may well be a good idea. We could reverse and do the ferry over, then train back in order to spend the evening in town. Thanks for that.
  4. Thanks for the info Leigh, appreciated. We may well spend the day in Melbourne having been quite a few times. Just wanted another option up our sleeves in case we want a quieter day.
  5. We have a full day scheduled as a port stop in Melbourne. Looking at spending a few hours in Geelong. No driving. I see there is a new ferry service from Docklands - Geelong & return, and the timings work well. Anyone used this ? If not the ferry, would the train or the bus be best ? Also appreciate any recommendations for a long lunch somewhere nice in Geelong, with a good view. Thanks.
  6. Our schedule shows Taormina as our port and it also shows as a tender. I believe we will tender into Giardini Naxos. Wondering if anyone has done this recently ? 1. Did your cruise line provide shuttles into Taormina ? 2. How much was a taxi back from Taormina back to the tender dock ? 3. What would be the best spot to catch a taxi from Taormina back to Giardini Naxos ? Thanks.
  7. We are transiting San Pedro for the day. We plan on visiting USS Iowa. On our walk back to the ship we want to shop for wine & pharmacy items. I note there is a Vons at 1221 S Gaffey.St. Would this be the best option for us ?
  8. Can you top up an old MYKI card with cash at the table set up in the cruise terminal ?
  9. Can someone who has been on Majestic this season tell us what the two fixed dining times actually are please. IE: If they differ from that shown on the personaliser.
  10. When one couple can make their online reservations earlier than another couple, what is the procedure for linking those together so they share a table ?
  11. Can anyone recommend a good car service in LA please ? We don't use Uber of Lyft type services. Also, any idea of an approximate cost for a normal size vehicle for the run from Century City area to San Pedro. I know it's a long way time wise, but just an idea will help when I ask for a quote. It would be for mid morning on a Sunday. Thanks.
