  1. Newcastle has been trying for years to use the old BHP site as a container terminal but is being blocked by the NSW Government. Something to do with compensation to be paid to Port Botany due to lost business. The ACCC has launched a Federal Court action claiming the Port Botany deal is "anti-competitive and illegal"See ACCC. Time will tell
  2. I wonder why Hayes Dock cannot be used permanently? I have been to plenty of overseas container docks on a cruise.
  3. As did Carnival when I booked a cruise on Carnival Spirit.
  4. Just goes to show some Carnival brand companies can accept email. Why not Princess?
  5. I have brought 2 bottles of wine in port and took it back onboard, bags were scanned and was not asked to pay corkage. This was on a cruise from Australia.
  6. I have trouble with Firefox when opening up a link and have found using Chrome or Edge as a solution.
  7. Transport is an issue at OPT and White Elephant.
  8. It would be a great outcome if the Garden Island option was adopted. Not looking forward to going to Botany Bay.
  9. I was looking at the wine list on my last cruise on the Golden and have attached a photo of two most expensive wines listed. As a comparison, I have also included Penfolds Grange.
  10. Can't even get away from it out at sea.😮
  11. Chez, It has cleared up here today in Nelson Bay. I hope the southerly has reached you and cleared away the smoke.
  12. I have just read that the air quality in Port Macquarie today was 1739 🤬. New Delhi was only 817 and Beijing 192. I used to worry about traveling to South East Asia when Indonesia was doing their burn-offs, but this is way worst. I need to get out to sea, quick. Here is a photo of the beach at Nambucca Heads covered with ash from the fires.
  13. I live and sail from Australia. My Loyalty OBC is converted from USD$ to AUD$. The last USD$75 gave me AUD$ 107. It follows that a TA's USD$ OBC will convert to AUD$. The Shareholder OBC is AUD$.
