  1. Found a clip on YouTube of Sea Princess arriving in St Johns https://youtu.be/T3icftAN2F4
  2. Dunedin's Baldwin Street stripped of world's steepest street record https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12249877
  3. And in some spots beware the incoming tide does not cut you off ,,,,,,,
  4. Also poplar with Aussies and Kiwis who have had a holiday over there and choose to cruise home rather than fly .
  5. Nice itinerary. Christmas Day at Stewart Island plus calls at ,Akaroa, and Kaikoura .Great ship for tendering ashore .
  6. Th Sea Princess World Cruise arrives in Cobh today and will be given the usual warm welcome from the locals. Heres a link to the local news for the visit. https://cobhedition.com/?p=33648
  7. Please dont rely on my comment about taxis . We were lucky and it was almost a spur of the moment chance that a taxi was available outside the Information Centre . . The taxi fleet is limited in a small town and they are kept really busy when a cruise ship arrives with an influx of 2,000 or more passengers. A private tour would be best if there are specific visits you want to make. Also the wineries will be busy and a private tour driver who knows the wineries you will visit , should be able to serve you any samples and give info , etc , if the winery staff are busy.
  8. Arriving in Portland, Dorset. Portland is a central part of the Jurassic Coast and is very important for its geology and landforms. Portland stone is famous for its use in British and world architecture which includes among many others, St Paul's Cathedral and the United Nations Headquarters . Portland Harbour is one of the largest man-made harbours in the world. The harbour was made by the building of stone breakwaters between 1848 and 1905 and played prominent roles during the First and Second World Wars.
  9. This winery in Hawkes Bay has just been voted no 11 in the world and would be well worth a visit . Craggy Range ....at the foot of the peak of Te Mata. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503462&objectid=12248065 when we were there we took a taxi a visited Te Mata wines , went up to the top of Te Mata , then on to the Mission Vineyard . Mission Vineyard was the first to be established in Nz , and is well worth a visit , if just for the setting.
