  1. Forgot to say that we finally got our refund for our May 11th cruise on Tuesday. We have now been fully refunded for all our holiday. Two cruises, air fares, helicopter tours and hotel bookings. We only lost $110 each for this last cruise so I consider ourselves lucky. Hope that everybody else still waiting for theirs receives a refund soon.
  2. If you are in the centre of Melbourne, the getting to the airport in the morning rush will be OK. its the evening rush you will have to worry about. I would love to go into Melbourne at the moment and see what its like deserted. The news footage looks amazing. But at the moment we are not allowed .
  3. Its around 4 hours flight time Melbourne to Auckland and if Ballarat is your last stop an easy 90 minute trip to Melbourne airport. All freeway, but I would avoid the morning rush hour.
  4. We got a full refund for both our Air New Zealand business flights. Melbourne to Honolulu and Calgary to Melbourne and the the Alaskan cruise from Celebrity, this week. These were through flight centre.
  5. Unfortunately some of the TA's in Australia have not treated their clients well in this period. I can more people booking things directly in the future.
  6. Liked the sound of this one so had a look. Can not believe how prices have gone up. We paid AUS$6000 for a 11 day cruise this February. Same cruise in 2022 is AUS$9000.
  7. Edit. Got the shore refund back in May.
  8. Its taken its time as I cancelled when they first started cancelling cruises in April for our May 11th cruise. But just got this from our Australian TA "We are happy to report that your refund is in queue and should appear in your account within the next four weeks." Not sure if the delay has been with Celebrity or the TA. Still waiting for the refund of the shore excursions I cancel early May.
  9. Hey what's this 65 old stuff?? I will be 65 next year and I am not old 🙃
  10. We had a 7 night Alaska cruise and 10 night self drive Vancouver to Calgary all booked this May 😪 Just don't know if or when we can go. Perhaps 2022?
  11. For our May Holiday I have had full refunds through Airbnb and all excursions that I booked direct. Still waiting for a refund on the 2 Celebrity cruises, excursions and the air new Zealand airfare. I still have my Fingers crossed.
  12. I remember doing that on the SS Australis in 1975, Southampton to Melbourne emigrating to Australia. 5 weeks as an19 year old, what a ball. Thought I recognised the X on the funnel.
