  1. Our thoughts & prayers go with you. A great attitude you have....Safe travels home! Bellairvideo
  2. Keep safe & well folks.... here is a thought. I wonder if HAL have considered chartering a Qantas or Virgin flight direct from Perth to LAX or SFO with just a fuel stop in Sydney. With the airlines stopping their services from the end of March they could easily fill a new Dreamliner 9 that has the range. It would mean a 4.5 hr flight to Sydney or Melbourne then straight to The USA. Best wishes for a safe flight home Bellairvideo Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. Don’t forget Perth to Melbourne ( regular flights with QF etc) as this city has AC flights direct to Vancouver & virgin, Qantas, UA direct to SAN Fran & LAX. Most of these are daily flights plus Jetstar, a cheaper Qantas budget service direct to Honolulu. I believe these are all flying as I type. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Many thanks for letting me know re your Norfolk Island experience. S glad you enjoyed the video. In the news here today that some of the South Pacific French islands are not allowing cruise ships to land due to the Coronavirus. The islands are Lifou, Isle of Pines & Mare.
  5. South Pacific Islands visited on this cruise: Tadine, Mare-Easo, Lifou-Luganville, Vanuatu-Port Vila, Vanuatu-Anelghowhat, Vanuatu-Noumea, New Caledonia-Norfolk Island, Australia-Tauranga, New Zealand-Waitangi, New Zealand-Auckland, New Zealand
  6. There have been some great deals recently on both the Noordam & Maasdam. Friends were able to take advantage of a Neptune suite unbelievable fare recently.
  7. We were on the Maasdam of the rare WW2 S.Pacific cruise in Sep. from Japan to Sydney & also saw some great places in PNG Here is the video highlights....a wonderful cruise. https://youtu.be/qilbZf1hEnQ
  8. You would definitely love this itinerary and the islands are so unspoilt.
  9. during our recent cruise (disemarked on Monday) we saw not one person use Club Orange facilities on board the Maasdam. The marked/roped red carpet at reception (not attended by any pax) and the menu item in the MDR included a standard meal itemm each night) I think it is not working for HAL
  10. Wonderful, yes he was a great Captain with a very dry humour indeed. I hope they made it to Norfolk Island with the Tenders this time....the island is much like Easter Island with 80% chance of not landing.
  11. This video provides a highlight of ports and up-to-date onboard experience during the 6-20 Jan. 2020 cruise visiting ports in New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Norfolk Island and New Zealand including a spectacular departure from Sydney Enjoy the cruise!
