  1. So not to start a new thread; do all cruise lines have fridges that don't work properly???? I can see Gut saying that earlier. i can vouch for Carnival not working well.. I sell 7-14 of these (Bar fridges) a week, to the holiday accomidation places around the Hunter valley; They don't have problems... So The Mystery deepens!!!!!!!!!
  2. It would have to go to interesting Ports also. eg:Newcastle, Coffs Harbour, Coolangatta, Geelong; ETC
  3. Especially out of Melbourne... We did a 6 day Tasmania back to Sydney; we where Invited to Diamonds lunch as there where only 2 of them & 6 of us Platniums.. The funny thing is the 2 Diamonds a lovely couple who actually live around the corner from me. had only talked to them on F-book in the past... Going again in 3 weeks & where at 150 days & worried we might be the most experienced.. Lol
  4. Where did they tender the passengers too; Not Circular quay; gets choppy they with all the ferries... Plus I wonder how long the tender ride was. Hope it's quicker then Port D...
  5. Newcastle don't need any Navy protection. We got GUT & By the Bay.. No No Sorry; We have Williamtown. The fighter plane base; The Jets (No Not the soccer team); The squadron up here....
  6. As mentioned above Carnival don't have 5 person berth cabins; but when Carnival Splendor arrives here In Dec. it has 5 person cabins. There's only a couple...
  7. Most hotels have USB charging in Singapore... I just used the cable part & when I got on ship used plug & Cable...
  8. My Favourite ship. Love the Urns. She's only got 48 more days left here in Australia, before she sails away for good. ;=(
  9. 8 on Legend & 7 on spirit. Music Manilla are good; but have seen better on carnival ship's. love the soloists/Dou's they have also & Piano bar. the best is The Punchliner comedy club.... Got 16 & 17 next month.. yeah....
  10. If you only have 4 to 6 drinks a day; The Spirit would be a much better option; I usually get 5 of there own Brew. thirsty Frog Summer Ales, to get me through. 595Mls brewed at The Rocks in Sydney for $8.95. Or a cocktail for $12(they usually have 2 or 3) shots of Alcohal in them.. As mentioned above about the age Demo's. There will be a lot of kids on both.. as X-Mas & school hols.. The Spirit is cheaper & they do all the right thing's that's why I have been back 15 times... You could become hooked after your first cruise...
  11. There's also a big difference in Cruise companies with prices to Amedee; RCL who your going with seem's to be the highest by far, while P&O are $199, so was Carnival when I was in Noumea last OCT. Princess is $225, I have been told. Escapade Island is a good Alternative. If you want the snorkling experience with fish 7 Turtles & then have a Buffett lunch. But it has gone up condiserably from $85 AUD in 2015 to now over $150 as mentioned above. I have a few friends & I'm going to try a NEW option it's called Noumea Turtle Tours; To Signal Island only $65 AUD; but no lunch & no real Ammedities (toilet, buildings); But it has just as good or better Turtle snorkling...
  12. As said above; Carnival do have FTTF on 7 day plus cruises. Most of the cruises we have here in Australia are 7 day plus & most of the pacific Islands are Tender/Shuttle ports. They will sell depended on how many Plats & Diamonds there are on each cruise...I'm pretty shaw, we didn't have FTTF on Singapore to Sydney cruise (Journey cruise) plus there where only 90-100 Plats/Diamonds so its good...
  13. John Heald; talkin about this on F-Book right now. It's running about 60-40 in favour of telling.. At anytime dining you can miss the dancing & singing if you time it right. They usual do it 50-60 min's after sitting start's. eg early dining at 5:30 (singing & dancing would be 6:20-6:30). I don't like it, so I anytime at 7:00, miss the first singing & the second sittings singing. Then I get to the 8:00 show at the main show loungue...
  14. That was pretty dear for a Taxi from Cruise terminal to hotel. I paid $11 & was the other side of Clarkes Quay's. Only paid $24 to get taxi all the way out to the Zoo from hotel. I was there 6 months ago in June.. Rip-off with those Limo's, becareful & Enjoy..
