  1. Beautiful sail-out! Would we be right to guess you weren’t one of the crazy Kiwis that mooned us from the shore!! 😱 😂
  2. Just leaving Melbourne and the Captain announced there’s a Noro outbreak on the ship, on top of the insane amount of people who’ve had the upper respiratory “crud” pretty much since we left Vancouver. Sigh.......
  3. Rich, hope you figured out that we could leave the ship as early as 730 this morning. Sydney is GORGEOUS... can definitely see coming back for an extended visit. We arrived earlier than expected this morning so missed sailing into the headlands, past the Opera House and under the bridge so will be up on deck for sailaway although we’re already about 25 minutes delayed leaving.
  4. Don’t believe it was for everyone staying on. F&B Director asked me for a list of CCers so we were all invited. It was split between yesterday and the day before.
  5. Plenty of outlets, including on both sides of the bed, three near the coffee maker near the angled side of the couch, and one in the dressing area.
  6. This was Easo, Lifou. Would have been a nice port had the wind and rough water not been present for most of the day.
  7. The Neptune Suites for sure were completely redone and are lovely. Suspect SS and PH were done as well. That said, she’s scheduled for another dry dock in Singapore in 2020, assume to finish the things they didn’t do during this one.
  8. Confirmed just now there are pitchers labeled milk and cream near the coffee machine in the lounge plus individual cartons of whole, 1%, and skim to take to your cabin.
  9. Our fridge chills our wine, tonic, and beer. It took about 5 days for the milk to sour.
  10. We crossed the Equator about 800 pm tonight (just under 2 hrs ago) which I was able to confirm with the Coriolis Effect experiment in our bathroom sink! LOL
  11. Yes, small cartons of whole milk available and I think also 2% and skim in Neptune Lounge (we keep a whole milk in our mini fridge).
  12. We’ve tried bottled and tap and taste no difference when we make coffee ... and for what it’s worth we don’t drink tap water plain from the bathroom.
  13. I don’t normally mention food because taste is so subjective but, IMHO, the Exc Port to Table entree last night was among the top 3 meals we’ve ever experienced on a ship (caveat - we’re also partial to eating fresh caught fish when in Hawaii). It was Fresh Hawaiian Macadamia Crusted Ono (Wahoo) Fillets, cooked to perfection. Kudos to the Executive Chef and his team for this unexpected treat ... the Ono was definitely ‘ono (Hawaiian for delicious)!!
  14. No to half and half. The pods appear to be the same size and shape as our Nespresso pods but we’ve never brought one onboard to try it. The brewer brand is Mocoffee Ventura (www.beukenhorst-USA.com) if you want to try Googling it and see if it’s compatible.
  15. Aloha e komo mai to Lahaina, Maui 🌺 🌈 🏝 😍
