  1. I'm so glad that you had a great time on your cruise, I hope the snorkelling went well too!
  2. Talia Beach is about 150ks west of us, heading towards the WA boarder. it's pretty cool that it was still intact after all this time.
  3. Thanks so much for pointing this one out Aus Traveller, it's a great read and has some fabulous photos!
  4. Thanks so much for a fabulous review, I'm pretty sure my bucket list is fast becoming a '44 gallon drum' list!
  5. Hi David, Can you please add: LincolnLegend, 30th Sep 2019, Pacific Explorer, 4nt to Moreton Island and LincolnLegend, 1st March 2020, Carnival Splendor, 10nt South Pacific. Cheers, Anne
  6. If you head to Angelo's once you are on, there are multiple desks set up to help you book any specialty dining you want.
  7. Hey aussiebossyboots, I haven't snorkelled from Noumea, but have enjoyed the aquarium, the tchou tchou train and the hop on - hop off bus at various times. There is also a Patisserie one block to the right of the cruise terminal that will spoil you for ham and cheese croissants for life! Lifou: OMG don't miss the Jinek Bay pass! We spent about 2.5 hours in the water there, we ended up right out at the drop off, which we were told afterwards usually results in a whistle and call back but didn't for us. So many fish and critters among the coral and outcrops, it was fabulous! Mare: head for the beach and take your snorkelling gear as there are some good areas, depending on the tide you may have to head out a fair way but it's all protected inside a reef system. Isle of Pines: We were there at the beginning of May and did do the Turtle Bay and Brush Island excursion. We only saw 1 turtle in Turtle Bay but saw others along with rays and fish at Brush Island. To be honest, I would be more inclined to snorkel around the sacred rock, as long as the weather is kind, it is a nice swim to go right around it and there is plenty of wildlife to be seen. There are also local tours available for about $30 per head which give you a good tour of the island for a couple of hours. I found the old prison fascinating and could have spent lots longer exploring!
  8. I have seen it mentioned elsewhere that P&O appear to have discontinued this package, but definitely keep an eye on the planner in case it reappears. I cruised on Explorer at the beginning of May and did both "A Taste of Salt" and "Love Riot" with the meal included. Both evenings were fabulous, a lot of laughs and great food. As for snorkelling, let us know where your cruise is stopping as we did lots on ours!
  9. I'm fairly sure I was on the same cruise and I'm wondering what shows you are referring to, surely you go to watch the shows, not talk through them? I can't imagine "Rock Anthems Through the Ages" at a low level!
  10. Love the Radiance and looks like a great cruise! Tossing up between this in 2021 or Canada and Alaska, so many places to cruise, so little finance to make it happen!
  11. Embarkation day for you today, have a great cruise!!!
  12. I must agree with MicCanberra and Aus Traveller, when I lived in the Northern territory I did not miss daylight saving but in South Australia I really enjoy it.
  13. Just for the record, the end of Daylight Saving sucks when you are working nightshift. That is all.
  14. Now Holst your horses, just catching up! This will Beet hoven to cook and clean for yourselves for the week. That's about it, think I'm baching up the wrong tree for any more! Looking forward to another entertaining live review!
