  1. I was looking at Holiday Inn, Sydney, today, rooms starting at $420 plus b/fast at $40 @$@l!n@a bit OTT. Last May pre Noordam we stayed at Sydney Harbour Marriott, got a travel industry deal for $300, but ate brekkie at City Extra at the Quay. Marriott wanted $45 pp for b/fast and I don't eat most of it. Brekkie at City Extra is fine for $15. In Feb, pre Majestic Princess we are at Holiday Inn KX, harbour view room with b/fast, pay in advance - no refunds for $200 a room, not bad.
  2. At the end of the day I reckon NCL will increase their comp offer from 24% to 50% to calm the storm and in order to retain customers.
  3. Like on Princess, every man and his dog is Elite these days.
  4. And we shall be there in April/May, post cruises. Have to give the Wetherspoons mixed grill a go. Their drinks are reasonable too, they buy up a lot of old pubs, do them up a bit and provide reasonably priced rooms. I have stayed in a couple of them. Below is the genuine article from Wetherspoons, @ 'heart attack on a plate.'
  5. But did they 'Escape Completely' and 'Come Back New?'🤣 (Princess cruisers can decipher that one !!)
  6. And sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  7. $19.40 is ok, remember once on your Princess ship ex Sydney, you will pay that for 2 beers !! Enjoy your adventure and safe travels !!
  8. The Airport Line is a private line, hence the price loading, good service though, we often use it, only thing is the rolling stock is not designed for carrying of luggage, unlike the Heathrow Express from LHR-London Paddington, where they have storage racks. So in the Sydney trains with luggage, get in the vestibule near doors.
  9. Or if you need a night in Mr Gut, try this micro wave one from Woollies Freezer. I tried one the other night, just a snack, not bad, but the meat is snags and meat pattie. Had to wash it down with a Vegemite jar of 'Chateau Cardboard red.
  10. I am of the opinion the 10 pound assisted passage scheme kicked off in the 1950's and went until 1980's. Australian and UK Governments split the bill. If you did not stay 2 years to had to pay back the full freight, which was well in excess of a tenner. I thought it was only a UK/Aus scheme, not Canada.
  11. Good work Mic & Rosie, I had a domestic the other day when I tried to book a 2021 cruise.😮
  12. You would like the pies here Brian, but the beer would freeze your tonsils.
  13. We are staying at the HI Potts Point - really Kings Cross, on 11 Feb, pre Majestic Princess cruise. The rail stn is right at the hotel. Train fare/cab fare from airport to KX is probably about the same for 4 pax. From airport you need to change at Town Hall for the Eastern Suburbs line, first stop KX.
  14. Smothered in garlic no doubt Brian.
