  1. Does anyone have any info on a Princess Cruise Australia re structure? I have had a recent email informing me that I have a new "Cruise Holiday Planner here at Princess Cruises". So this now takes it to my 3rd new planner this year with Princess, 4 in total. We had to make an amendment with our pending cruise so I tried to contact my new planner. After 3 phone calls and leaving messages & several emails in the past 2 days I gave up. So today was my CONTACT PRINCESS mission day to try and speak to my planner. I tried the following numbers: 1800 945204 1800 362695 1300 960922 I have spoken to consultants in the Philippines, the USA and 1 other call centre (India, I think) , yet no one can connect me to an Australia call centre. The long and short is that I have been advised that there is no longer a call centre or Holiday planners based in Australia (Sydney). Has anyone tried to contact the Sydney office recently? If so, I would love to have a direct phone number. Cheers, Johhno
  2. Hi Kayla, yes if your a CCL shareholder you can get OBC for your P&O Cruises. In saying this Im trying to get my OBC currently for our cruise on the Aria in Sept. Talk about put me through the hoops,never had any dramas with getting OBC with Princess before but this is a whole new ball game. Cheers Johhno
  3. Hi David, Could you please add the following. 27 Sept 2019 … Johhno -, Pacific Aria – PNG Cheers, Johhno.
  4. For all you past 35 nt Hawaii Princess cruisers was there any advantage to a Port side or Starboard side Balcony. Looking at considering this cruise in 2021. Any advice appreciated. Cheers Johhno.
  5. Hi David ,thanks for the photos. Akaroa was an interesting sailin as we arrived in heavy fog. Even when tendering in the tenders were using their fog horns as we couldn’t even see 10 mtrs in front of us.cleared up to be a perfect day. In Wellington today . Using free wifi at Te Papa museum at the moment. Been here before but always great for another look. Cheers Johhno.
  6. Yes, David currently in the fiords we missed Mildford due to high winds (70 knots) just transit Thompson fiords misty rain and 11 deg. Heading to Dusty sound at present. Les, AFL was live on MUTS and in staterooms 4.00pm yesterday . NRL at 10.00pm on MUTS as well. Cheers Johhno.
  7. Firstly, thanks to Cheznandy, we have followed your posts down to Australia, taking lots of notes for our trip to New Zealand. The Majestic Princess is a beautiful new ship and we are enjoying cruising once again. A few observations we have made so far: We registered on the first day for the Ultimate Ship Tour $175 aud/pp only to be told that they now use a ballot system and that we are not guaranteed a spot. Not first in, best dressed as in previous cruises. Laundry for Elites on this cruise is a 2 day turn around. We have a fantastic cabin steward who has been with the Majestic since day one and is always up for a chat and laugh. The International cafe is always busy. Seating is limited with everyone overflowing into the Vines wine bar. There is no designated walking/track like the Royal and Regal. We walk around deck 18, walking through the sports/basket ball court. Great to see the colour carpets coding for hallways, blue for port (left)side and red for starboard (right) side. Always helpful when leaving the lifts to find your side of the ship! Whilst loving the Princess luxury beds (very comfortable), the beautiful Piazza and the little things that make Princess our preferred cruising choice, we still prefer the layout of the Diamond and Sapphire Princess ships. Must away for now AFL about to start on MUTS. Go EAGLES !!! Cheers Johhno.
  8. Hi all, we will be first time cruisers to Alaska . Need advice from all you experienced Alaskan cruisers. Looking at this cruise Sept next year on the Royal. We are flying into LA from the land of OZ to do this cruise. We always book a Balcony but with this being a round trip is there any real benefit to a Port or Starboard Balcony for this cruise. Thanks in advance. Cheers Johhno.
  9. Thanks for the heads up. I'm now the proud owner of the Aldi/Bauhn Universal Travel Kit. Cheers, Johhno.
  10. Hi Leigh , We are on the Sept 27th Majestic NZ cruise. Like yourselves we considered our options and ended up booking with a booking company like V----r ( not allowed to mention their name), Dunedin ShoreExcursion: Taieri Gorge Railway Tour and City Sightseeing . They pick you up from the port and transfer you to the train etc. Friends of ours have also done this cruise on the Sea Princess and recommended this tour to us.The local company that provides this tour guarantees to be back on time and has never failed to comply. Cost $150 aud per person. Princess cost $310 aud per person. Cheers, Johhno.
