  1. Thanks for posting - we're meeting her in Auckland for the return (to Sydney) journey. Very excited.
  2. Thank you! I didn't notice that, but just checked mine again and it is the same. So we'll probably head over straight after checkout, otherwise we'll plan a lunch in port and head over much later.
  3. I'm in CC for my cruise next month, but they don't want us to arrive before 1:30pm. So this means no CC lunch? (earliest check in is 12pm).
  4. No. The only thing it would stop me doing is going to China. I admit my cruise is low-risk - it is in 3 weeks and it is in NZ and Australia (and the ship is in NZ now so I imagine it will stay close ahead of my sailing). There are only 15 confirmed cases in Australia (one at my work though), the numbers are not growing, and none in NZ. If they keep maintaining border control then we have nothing to worry about.
  5. There are tourism ads on TV now asking people to visit, and this is on their website. I hope to make a weekend visit soon. #BookThemOut Now more than ever, our beautiful Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island regions need your support. Tourism is vital for these regional economies to rebuild after the Cudlee Creek and Kangaroo Island bushfires. So together let’s #BookThemOut. Round up some friends and plan a trip to their backyard. Tour with a local guide, meet the wildlife, buy the local produce, spirits and wine and stay a few nights. So much of the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo
  6. For Dunedin, I found this blog post very informative: https://www.ahappypassport.com/blog/driving-otago-peninsula Hope it helps.
  7. My answer was in response to the original question (which was quoted), whether single tickets are cheaper than using an Opal card.
  8. Yes, what OzKiwiJJ said, Opal will save you roughly about $1 per fare - but like Chiliburn said, you have to fork out for an Opal upfront. However, although you will have to start with a $20 Opal, it looks like you will easily spend that with your planned trips. See prices here (comparisons for single tickets vs Opal/Contactless fares): https://transportnsw.info/tickets-opal/opal/fares-payments/opal-single-tickets And another benefit of Opal/Contactless is transfers - so if you use the same card within an hour, you will often get reduced or free fares - meaning you can
  9. You don't necessarily need an Opal - you can use a debit or credit card (from the website: If you have an American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit or debit card or a linked device) (one that is contactless) - just be sure to always tap off, and to tap off with the same card. https://transportnsw.info/tickets-opal/opal/contactless-payments
  10. Newcastle has Uber if that helps (if there are no taxis). But hopefully someone else can answer re taxis.
