  1. I did a 10 night cruise with Carnival in March and we definitely paid $125 per cabin for FTTF. I think it would be worth asking them to relook at the amount you have been charged.
  2. Hi MFR, I'm certainly no expert in Sydney travel but have used the train service to CQ and as a country girl found it surprisingly easy to navigate. As long as you are comfortable handling your luggage, it will be very straightforward.
  3. Thanks for the review, I'm on Splendor at the beginning of March, it will be my first time with Carnival so it's nice to read this prior to cruising.
  4. The Golden Princess snuck in for an overnight stay in Port Lincoln yesterday afternoon so I grabbed a quick photo while I was in town shopping. Unfortunately that is as much as I will see her this visit as I'm working until 5 tonight, well away from the sea.
  5. Hey Esilef, do you think your son would cope with a hop on, hop off type of tour? In Noumea, they have what they call the Tchou Tchou train which is a bit more open than a bus but heads to the same places. The Aquarium in Noumea is really good as well, lots of movement and colours which may keep his attention. If the weather is good, Lemon Bay is a great option to get out at and let him play and run on the beach.
  6. Merry Christmas to all! Adding my thanks for the entertainment and advice always given cheerfully here, it is my first stop whenever I check CC. I've been at work for an hour, only 8 more to go, catching up with the family for tea this evening, spoilt myself with Christmas pudding and Bailey's flavoured cream for breakky!
  7. She made it here to Port Lincoln on schedule this morning, no chance for a photo as I got called into work early, guessing all is fine again!
  8. I'm sad that it's nearly over, yet thankful that I got to enjoy it! Thanks Sid!!
  9. Another tribe member late to the party - I blame being on the other side of the world! Oh well, page 3 isn't so bad, looking forward to following the rest!
  10. Last time I was at Ilse de Pines, I did a tour of the island with a local driver for about $35 from memory. We went to about 4 different places, including the old ruins of the original gaol which I found fascinating but may not interest the kids! I have also done a turtle bay tour from there, it was definitely turtle bay as we only saw one! It was a lot of fun and some good swimming though. On Mystery Island, I have done tours with locals out to find turtles for about $20, but there is great snorkelling if you walk through the market area and across to the other side of the island. If you head to your right along the beach, there is a lot of really good reef to swim around. Sorry, I have short hair so can't help with the braiding!
  11. Sorry Chiliburn, I've only just seen this. I think there is lots to see and experience, depending on the interests of the visitor. I know they run a hop on/hop off loop that stops at various places around town, including parks, museums and seafood eateries. There are also lots of tours on offer, including swimming with sea lions, visits to oyster farms, visits to national parks and koala sanctuary areas. There are always markets on, showcasing local talent and the walk from the ship to the markets along our beautiful beach, with it's sculptures of Makybe Diva and the recent addition of the Tuna Poler is fabulous as well! There are also a number of friendly pubs with outdoor seating across the road from the beach for a nice meal and a frothy if that takes your fancy!
  12. I'm so, so glad that the Golden Princess is in tomorrow and not today! 44 degrees, roaring northerlies with gusts up to 80kph and a power outage from about 1pm this afternoon, with no end in sight as yet! all our schools have been closed for the day, my friend's agistment centre is in a direct line if the fire from last Monday gets going again, so we evacuated all the horses to the race course by 7am. I started work at 4.30pm, looking forward to some coolness but to no avail, evidently essential power does not extend to aircon in offices! Hopefully the change arrives and power is restored by 12.30am when I get home!
  13. Welcome all to my fabulous home town, we've put on a wonderful morning for you, not sure it's going to stay that way as it's forecasted to get windy later. I hope everyone has a great day, unfortunately I'm stuck over the hill working all day! I am going to a Princess cruise presentation after work, to drink wine and wave goodbye as she heads back out.
  14. Shucks, really you didn't want to miss out on being on our first ship for the season on Wednesday, I'm sure!
