  1. Where do you think all the eggs come from on board ? When I first started cruising I was told they keep hens down below ,feed them all the scraps from the dining room , and collect nice fresh eggs . Its a great system as they use the droppings for fuel and when they stop laying they make great chicken fillets .
  2. From midnight tonight everyone entering NZ will have to enter a quarantine facility for 14 days . No self isolating at home .
  3. 1 hectare = 2 1/2 acres If that was barn it would be huge .πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
  4. Update on one of Dunedin’s attractions... In case you missed this on the Ports of Call board
  5. The OBC for shareholders is simply a marketing tool . Carnival knows that anyone who can afford 100 shares has disposable income to spend and are therefore a target market .
  6. We don’t have special times for seniors . They just go to the head of the line , show their Gold Card and are shown in . Some stores have brought in text queuing. You register at the door then wait in your car for your turn .Not seen Any shortages here yet . No shortage of flour ,the problem has been that the packaging of the flour can’t keep up with the panic buying ,so our market is selling it in plain plastic bags .
  7. GOOD NEWS Dunedin has regained the title of steepest street again . A remeasure by the Gluiness Book of Records has found that the claim by the Welsh village was Measured incorrectly. https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/back-your-backyard/120918309/baldwin-st-wins-back-title-of-worlds-steepest-from-welsh-challenger
  8. The cruising industry is in a state of utter confusion at the moment. Imagine the chaos in the kitchens that prepare the tens of thousands of meals for everyday consumption .Imagine the chaos in the supply chain. ......( eg ....cancel that order for a thousand tons of prime steaks .....we don’t need 1 million eggs this month. etc ) Cruises are planned months if not years ahead . I have a feeling that any concern for cruising in Australia by the cruise lines will be way down their agenda .
  9. Covid 19 Coronavirus: PM Jacinda Ardern seeks legal advice on Ruby Princess cruise ship letting virus into New Zealand https://nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=123232186 More trouble for Ruby as NZ looks into why the ship allowed passengers exposed to the virus ashore at its last 2 stops in NZ , before cancelling the rest of the cruise and heading back to Sydney . Both Wellington and Napier have cases with people who came into contact with passengers off the ship .
  10. I am sure the old boy will but he may have to leave the reindeer at home . The pixies and the elves will just have to work harder to compensate .πŸ¦ŒπŸ¦ŒπŸŽ…
  11. I have walked around that clock . Quite historic and famous . I will wait for others to guess the location We were there on a Sunday and l remember passing a local church and being wowed by the harmonies coming from the singing .
  12. If no vaccine is found we will have to rely on herd immunity , just like civilisations in the past that have come and gone .
