  1. When traveling, I'm quite determined. We've done a similar schedule on past trips.
  2. Yes to clarify we are coming straight from Florida which will be around 24 hours of travel and losing a whole day. Thankfully our flight to Sydney is a red eye so we should sleep a little. We know we will be pretty but but thankfully the first two days of the cruise are at sea so we can recuperate then! We are thinking of dropping off the bags when we arrive and doing the zoo that day. We want to do a behind the scene tour that apparently only has 2 start times trophies the day. Normally we get on the ship pretty early but this time around we may just drop the bags off and continue to explore. I think it’s safe to say the private car is NOT the best option!
  3. Okay so a bit more information about what we’re wanting to see/do. Definitely don’t want to be stuck in traffic all day so I’m open to some different suggestions! We’re from a Florida and this is our first international trip so figuring out the local transportation is a bit intimidating. As I said, we’re arriving the day before our cruise around 8am. We won’t be able to check into our hotel until after 1pm and we will be at the Travelodge Martin Place. So we also have our luggage to figure out what to do with until we can check in. As it gets closer so will check with the hotel to see if they can just hold our luggage until the room is ready. Theres a few shops in the Rocks we want to stop in and we also want to go to Taronga Zoo and perhaps the botanic gardens. We also have tickets to the Nutcracker at the opera house the evening of the the day we arrive. When I look at a map, it feels all over the place. We plan to make the most of our limited time so we will probably being going going from when we land to when our heads hit the pillow!
  4. Well good thing we aren’t in the 18th Century. Also can’t really think of another word for transportation. Thanks for the fact though...
  5. Because from what we’ve looked at, the places we want to see are all over the place. We don’t just want to stay in Circular Quay. Also it’s our one big vacation we take every two years so I would prefer the ease if it was a reasonable price.
  6. Mulling over the idea of getting a private car and driver for the day we arrive in Sydney. We have just the one day before our cruise and would rather not waste time having to drop bags off at hotel and trying to Uber or walk everywhere. I'm from the states so where is the best place to look for a service like this?
  7. We did this on our Alaska trip in 2017. I cannot remember the ship. I want to say Explorer? The tour was great but the group seemed bigger than the space allowed. Very small parts of the galley at times but we really enjoyed the information. The food was plentiful! Really did get bottomless champagne and the food was set up as a buffet for us. They had anything from steak, potatoes, veggies to breakfast stuff like poached eggs and pastries. I think they even had a whole fresh sushi section.
  8. I've always been a 7 day cruiser but this year we have our first 12 day coming up on Ovation to NZ. I Iike the leisure of a cruise but with the extra time, I'm curious to try out more on board activities. It will be just me and my husband sailing.  That being said, what are your favorite onboard activities that RCC offers? Both free and paid? I know it can vary based on the cruise but still would love to hear!
  9. Is there a ship with bungee jumping onboard? Or are they referring to an excurion? We aren't big thrill seekers so I don't think we'll have to worry about that either way.
  10. Yeah definitely specific to Royal. Not sure why it was moved either! We have our first ship tour booked on this one! Very excited!

  12. This helps me to remember to bring a print out of the terms on my future cruise if they haven't changed the language by then! Only purchased it once so far and definitely had multiple punches for larger sizes.
  13. In my past experience we recieved a letter directing us to pick it up at the coffee shop in the promenade. They had our name down on a list and issued it to us there.
  14. Sorry about that, we did not bake the cupcakes. They had different premade flavors we could pick and then a couple designs they walked us through.
