Live from the 2020 Grand World Voyage

Recommended Posts

Safe travels home. I’m guessing Sherita is part of the overland tour that doesn’t get to return to the ship.

Love you are still doing reports in spite of what all is happening.

 

Keep up your spirits -- you'll get home safely.

 

Sorry to hear that the one group will not be able to get back on the ship.

So sorry about all this, Kathi!  The whole world has come to a grinding halt.  At least you are able to disembark in Fremantle, I was afraid they were going to refuse to let you port in Australia.  Hurry home, Canada just announced flight restrictions, the US may do the same.

I'm happy to read that all you have to do is pack, and HAL will ship possessions home to you. Obviously, you'll want a suitcase or two with you, but this is so helpful. Packing is a big enough job.

Kathi, thanks so much for your reports-and of course the trivia! Have an uneventful journey home and I look forward to more trivia in the future ☺️. Hope to see you again sometime on another cruise.  --Susie

Kathi, very sorry about the trip being canceled but glad to hear that the Australian government has relented to allow the ship to dock in Freemantle and allow everyone to fly home. I know that Rodney and Marilyn are relieved, along with other Australians and, I imagine, a few from New Zealand, to have a shorter trip home.

Hope you're able to obtain a reasonable flight schedule home. I would imagine you may have to stay in Perth for a few days before you get a flight home.

Also, most US airlines have drastically cut their flight schedules within the US.

Please take care and let us know when you get back home.

Hoping the best for your trip home. It's a tough situation to be in - especially with the speed of the reactions from the officials. 

 

Best wishes for an easy flight and return to US.

 

Take care.

Kathi, I hope that you have safe travels home.  I will miss your thread as it has been enjoyable to follow along with your travels on this voyage.  May the good Lord bring you safely back home.  Neil

Looks like Amsterdam is following Seabourn Sojourn (at quite a distance) on the way to Freemantle/Perth. Crystal Serenity is behind Amsterdam (also at distance) with a destination indicated of Geraldton, also in Western Australia but located north of Freemantle/Perth. Queen Mary 2 and Costa Deliziosa, in the meantime, have departed Freemantle after disembarking their pax, and are both headed westbound in the Indian Ocean. Privately owned residential cruise ship "The World" is still berthed in the port of Freemantle. Perth Airport will be a busy place for a while

 

Perth Airport took out the honours for the best overall quality of service for passengers and airlines.

Pacific Princess World Cruise was also headed to Fremantle last I checked. They have been at sea since March 3.

Sure looks that way with a March 20 arrival. She does not show live on AIS and her last position there shows her westbound from Sri Lanka. That has obviously changed

Does Copper or anyone, know if the Regent Mariner has reached Perth. A friend of a friend is on that ship. Thanks.

Kathi, on a totally different note, when you have a chance check out Joann Fabrics for Lion Brand Cupcake yarn. I thought of the Project Linus blankets when I saw it-and right now it's 1/2 price!

Not sure

Not sure what's going on with the World.  No signs of any activity on her so I guess her pax have been sent home but don't understand why she is still berthed.  QM2 was given a deadline to get out of the port (Termination of cruise was just announced Sunday AM so getting everybody to hotels and/or flights is an ongoing challenge 2 days later).  Hopefully, HAL will have arrangements for Amsterdam guests well in hand when she arrives.
