Crystal Serenity at Kangaroo Island for Valentines Day

Recommended Posts

A beautiful day here today and the sea is very calm - a far cry from the last couple of days 

 

The locals tell me they got the winds earlier this week and one of the Cunard ships couldn’t get in to tender 

 

Heres some shots from onboard and the Island 

 

The tenders are running smoothly and it’s only a short 5 minute ride in and a very modern jetty

We’re docked in the Outer Harbour freight area - it’s a lovely day weather wise 

 

Off to a friends Vineyard for lunch - so life’s looking pretty good

Good point David, thank you. I can be on Hawaii time, right now.  The local petrol station sells flowers, they should be reduced in price now, post Valentines day, I had better get down there old son.

 

BTW, nice looking ship the Crystal Serenity.

Yes just arrived a few minutes ago 

It’s quite a busy port with lots of freighters around 

We had a lone bagpiper welcome us in

Excellent port - plenty to see and do - the highlight for us at least was the National ANZAC Centre - a recent facility set up to mark the centenary of Gallipoli - and this is one time the Government got something right!

 

We loved being able to follow a soldiers journey - everyone gets a card with a soldier and there are points you can scan it and get info on the journey and ultimately the fate of your assigned soldier 

 

Thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Albany 

 

It’s a busy port with freighters taking out grain, wood chip and silica sand - there’s around 5 or 6 freighters at anchor waiting their turn to load up

They are having a day at Bussleton today. They seem to get more Aussie ports than the Aussie cruise lines  offer . :classic_huh:

Tendering in today, then Freemantle tomorrow then it’s farewell Australia for Crystal Serenity for 2019 - off for 7 sea days straight crossing the Indian ocean (hope the containers of supplies are there in Freemantle as they’re starting to run low on some items)

 

Her sister ship, Crystal Symphony, will arrive in Sydney in March for an East Coast visit en route to Asia

Just getting up in the West 

 

Not much view from Starboard side verandah 

 

and Bed Cam isn’t much better 🙂

 

It’s a tender port so well go ashore after breakfast for a look around and the inevitable train ride on the mile + long pier

 

Then it’s that awful moment of bag packing....
