  1. Spectrum will be berthing at the OPT on Saturday after the Ovation sails ( around four or five pm) There will be no passengers to debark and embark will start around six pm or so. It will be doing a cruise to nowhere so could either sail late that evening or stay until early morning and sail then ,as long as it is gone by five am so the Splendour can berth.
  2. Oh look .......Rod is back πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ€‘πŸ€‘ It is interesting though that seeing the number of ships redeploying here from Asia for the winter, and it’s not that big a pie, how they all will fair ( fare ?) Royal is the only line offering the free cruises for the first responders so good on them for that.πŸ‘
  3. Checking out it’s future new homeport ?? Where would it berth ..I think the grain terminal would be too small and the new terminal is not ready yet. No idea really.
  4. It’s ok..I get paid by the hour πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘πŸ€‘ Why would they be stopping in Brisbane?? No pax on board and plenty of news crews ( unfortunately) in Sydney
  5. Unfortunately it does seem pretty short notice to get 4000 odd people to be able to go on a cruise and to what destination. At a quick glance it looks as though the 7th March is the first available date for a return unless of course they double up again but that can only really work for just an embark or debark but not both....watch this space I guess. No comment on the other topic.
  6. Spectrum will be arriving in Sydney on the 29th Feb and will be berthing at the OPT in the afternoon after the Ovation sails. It will be arriving” passenger less β€œ Don’t know much else at this time. By the way, for our Rod β€œfans” , he has been posting on CC theme cruises asking about a KISS cruise he wants to take his wife on. Sounds a bit hypocritical to me, wanting to go on a cruise on one of those floating garbage cans owned by those greedy, self centred money, hungry cruise lines that do nothing except pollute and destroy Mother Earth.......when it suits EH! Bet he doesn’t mention what Royal are doing for the fire fighters and such.. etc
  7. A bit hypocritical by you don’t you think .....you want to take a cruise on one of those floating garbage cans owned by those greedy money grabbing cruise lines, that you hate so much, that do nothing but pollute and destroy the world????? Must only be when it suits you.
  8. This corona case came off the Norwegian Jewel in Sydney last Friday. We only saw one case at first but then discovered the other one half an hour later, so it does spread quickly. Both cases actually had a LIME luggage tag would you believe.
  9. Yep, total beat up by the bottom feeding scum bag tabloids. I was working at the OPT today and yes there were a couple of Noro passengers and the health dept wisely checked the pax out before letting them leave the ship. We did However have two corona cases come off the ship and I was able to take a photo to confirm this. Would you believe the colour of their luggage tag....yep ..Lime
  10. Yep.. it’s called climate.....and it’s always changing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  11. Must be because of all the climate change........ but now that the ground is wet I cannot glue myself to the footpath in protest. 😑😑😑
  12. Not another re meat pies topicπŸ˜±πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜
  13. Yep..and we have got a land tour booked for China May 1st...just lucky I guess 😁
  14. Windsor 26 ..we are also doing the Sun Princess to PNG and the Solomons in March..it will be β€œ funny” if we all get the letters for measles and then get knocked back because of the Coronavirus as they are saying you cannot go there if you come from a country that has confirmed cases of the virus , although things could easily change between now and then
