  1. Diet coke and Sprite zero were available in January on around NZ cruise.
  2. "Calling in" to Auckland is nothing to do with no longer having any embarkation or disembarkation in Auckland.
  3. This absolutely stinks! 🤬 My Jan and Feb 2026 bookings on Crown have been cancelled. I'm particularly upset that the 5 night Auckland to Auckland has been cancelled, it would have been my dd first cruise and no, there isn't anything else suitable!🤬 So no Auckland departures at all! 😭
  4. Bulkhead with a wall in front of you? So you cannot stretch your legs out?
  5. Your TA can ask cruise line to release a particular cabin from Sydney allocation so they can then book it for you.
  6. Did you find premium economy better than Skycouch?
  7. Oh sorry, I misread your post 😬
  8. Had 2 balcony chairs on my January cruise.
  9. How do you get onto the "never upgrade this person" list? Thanks
  10. That sounds like a lot to do when you are unwell. Were you able to send them the documents they asked for?
  11. If you book on board you can have that booking transferred to your travel agent if you wish.
  12. That sounds like a good idea to me, but you don't do it anymore?
  13. You can buy internet for 24 hours. Easiest in the app once on board.
  14. Just off Royal 2 weeks ago, we didn't book for dinner, one dining room is allocated for anytime dining, never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a table for two.
  15. The "gelato" didn't taste to me like genuine gelato which I ate every day in Italy, it was nice enough though.
  16. You buy the fcd on board and can book immediately using it, I have just done so.
  17. Just off the Royal yesterday. The 2 casual dining are Alfredo's and Vines, only option in Vines is the charcuterie board and chocolate truffles. Premium desserts are at the gelato place on deck 5. You can get the regular gelato 1, 2 or 3 scoops instead of the premium desserts which is what we did. We were going to get a couple of the premium desserts just for the photo op but kept forgetting🤣
  18. I had a 4 plug multi strip (non surge protected) confiscated recently. No matter how many times I quoted their own policy to them they wouldn't budge 🤬
  19. I got on in Auckland on Friday. It's not deep cleaning that's causing the delay in Sydney tomorrow it's enhanced immigration.
  20. Hi John, Haven't booked flights yet (coming from Auckland) but will be at least the day before (my nerves couldn't cope with flying in on the day) 😁 See you on board 🚢🥂🍹
  21. There will likely be lots of people getting off in Sydney, a lot of cruisers from the previous cruise before Auckland.
  22. I'm getting on in Sydney too! 😁
  23. I'm in NZ and policy is with AIG. I've just spoken to them and there is no Covid cover! How stupid is that, if Westpac Australia cover Covid but NZ does not, what's the difference? (Rhetorical question but really, that's seems unfair). It also does not cover when in NZ waters, which I see yours does.
