  1. I'm envious lol, I really wanted to try the slides. Also I booked one of those SPA staterooms....but it never happened. That must of been so crap, getting there and the announcement of being told th news and the stress of the unknown of COVID. Yeah you never know on being neighbours. How good are the jr. Suite's on the hump, especially the ones behind the lifts......not many walk past your stateroom.
  2. Yep, Noumea is looking back to normal. I agree on Vanuatu, what's yours/others thoughts on Vanuatu being good by 2023. Disclosure.....I have a vested interest via a 9 night South Pacific departing 4 Jan 2023 lol.
  3. G'day also! Yes, let's pray to whoever that they will be open! Yeah I think I read on here that you and your friends got a raw deal with radiance, that sucks bigtime! I was meant to be on VOTS in 2020 but COVID stuffed that up. I really liked voyager the first time round and was really looking forward to going on her again and visiting isle of pines again also. Ovation is great but I really wanted to be on Voyager one more time lol. What deal/stateroom did you get on Ovation? The wife and i ended up getting a Jr. Suite on the hump for a really good price, in fact its the same stateroom we have stayed twice before.
  4. THE KEY is currently available @ $49.61AUD THE DBP is currently available @ $146.37AUD
  5. Yes you can bring snacks. Typically the wife and i don't bring any snacks on board as there is so many awesome offerings available on board. However for the exception, we do bring a few small packs of Kettle Salt & Vinegar chips/crisps.....the wife has a craving for them! Why you might ask? Well in 2017 we paid $11.00USD on board for a pack that would of costed.....$1.80AUD So yes think of the snacks you can't go without lol.
  6. Yes, I agree. It is around that 100% increase mark compared with two sailings that I had in 2020 and in 2021. I think that if was around $90AUD per day I would buy it, but at $140ish.....tell'em ya dreaming!
  7. Yes, it's looking like we just pay as we go at this point.
  8. I've noticed that on a lot of Australian sailings the deluxe drinks package are/is incurring a $143 AUD price point. That would be after conversion $103 USD!!!!!! Some are saying that that is an error but not sure. Thoughts??????
  9. Check in for Ovation of the Seas - Jan 04, 2023 - Jan 13, 2023 (9 Night South Pacific Cruise)
  10. Well that sucks hahaha, time to pick a new cruise, rebook flights and rooms. All I can say is I guess good things come to those who wait. Question tho, I had a cruise canceled in Nov 2020 and I received 125% FCC. I had that FCC applied to a cruise in Jan 2022. Now Jan 2022 is cancelled, do I get a further 125% FCC on top?
  11. https://amp.theaustralian.com.au/travel/foreignflagged-cruising-high-on-the-tourism-agenda/news-story/58b96f34079ea2e42ff0222f5670e4d7 You need a paid sub to read the whole thing but it has a preview of the article. Also another good sign

  13. Hahahahaha, can't even get astra cause of blood clots under 50 and pfizer is scarce for under 50. Most of the pfizer is going to Frontline and folks who need it health wise.
  14. I re booked my voyager march 2021 to ovation jan 2022 and it seems that wont happen now. I'm thinking either ovation Dec 2022 or ovation Jan 2023. Bloody sick off rebooking flights and rooms, but in saying this tho it could be absolutely much worse regarding how many people are suffering and dying in the world.
  15. Upon reading a topic about sea sickness I thought about after my first cruise and how I got land sickness. God it was horrible especially in the shower, it felt like I was in rough seas in the damm shower hahahaha. Even a week after the cruise! What was yours like and do super seasoned cruisers still get it?
  16. I get motion sickness and sucks big time! I find that the good old phenergan really helps me, I take one the night before the cruise and one every night of the cruise. Just one pill and I'm absolutely fine and I can drink with it too and not feel drowsy!
  17. Not sure how you americans folk feel about lobster on a pizza? In oz we have prawns-shrimp on pizza but not lobster tho @ $120aud per kilo for southern rock lobster lol. Tomato base, garlic, herbs, onion, lobster, chilli and not sure about cheese tho. Hmmmm.....
  18. Good point! Imagine getting a pizza base and walking around putting whatever on it within windjammers and then getting them to cook it. Granted some odd concoctions may occur lol
  19. Bacon, cheese, red onion, tomato, sausage, mushroom and egg pizza with maybe a swirl of maple syrup? On a side note I need to visit sorrento's more often because it seems from what iam reading there is rotating options.
