  1. Hi We had 3 nights in Sydney before a New Zealand cruise January 2020 and stayed at the Hilton Sydney. We were very pleased with all aspects of hotel it was opposite Queen Victoria building very central we could walk to all we wanted to see good restaurants close by as well. Feel free to ask any questions I will be happy to answer if I can. 😁
  2. Thanks for that it’s what we thought but with others mentioning taxis & walking to places left us puzzled 😕
  3. So has it been confirmed that we are allowed to do our own thing off the ship and not just ship excursions?
  4. Not confirmed deck or cabin number but online booking process gave me the option of section of ship for me to choose the same as booking any cruise. I chose mid forward which is an area we often go for resulting in grade BB , which we were happy with & I think gave me decks 9-14. Grade BB has been confirmed so we’ll see what cabin we are allocated in due course. Not too fussed in these circumstances where we are just happy to have a week to look forward to fingers crossed. We would normally chose exact cabin position/number if at all possible though !
  5. That’s good we are BB grade mid forward happy with that, don’t tend to use TA these days after problems with refunds on cancelled cruises (certainly not implying your “beast” of a TA would be any cause for concern) Roll on September
  6. All booked on Regal September 9th for 7 days & looking forward to it , seems ages ago when we were last on Majestic round New Zealand January 2020 some rough seas on that one not that it really bothers us. Booked direct balcony grade fine with package and was printing off travel summary by 08:20 before work got in the way 😀
  7. We have gone for 9th September visiting Liverpool & Belfast can’t be away over month end/start wife’s job again I’m afraid. Thought long about cruising considered P&O had 2 cancelled already in past year but we prefer Princess really but not much in it. We enjoy our cruises but mix our holidays up a little to give us variety don’t necessarily opt for Southampton departure either, we’ll fly anywhere to pick up a cruise if the itinerary attracts us.
  8. Yep we are going for it. Regal in September know my grade of cabin & checked our insurance today to know we are well covered before booking. Really fancied Sky but booked to go on her July 2022 and dates worked better for wife on Regal for her work. Roll on 8am tomorrow 😁
  9. Some odd things can happen with your Captain circle status. Both me & wife are Platinum and whilst on Majestic Princess Jan 20 New Zealand cruise from Sydney We met another UK couple who were Elite but only on their 3rd ever cruise. They had been on Sea Princess and Britannia before this cruise and told us that their cruise card wouldn’t open their stateroom door ( not Medallion then) so went to Guest Services got an apology and upgraded them to Elite. Happy days for them 😁
  10. Sailing past Brittania on a very wet grey August 2018
