  1. How could I forget that delightful Ukrainian young lady ...what a gem , as I drank Martinis every night she was worth every bit of the tip she got from us at the end of the cruise
  2. Me too the 9 night Qld ...I enjoyed the cruise and the staff were wonderful but I will not sail on Voyager again ....I agree with the tired comment ....our suite toilet blocked twice on our trip and it took a quite while for it to be attended to...the redo seemed more of a budget cutting exercise by adding/ slides and cabins without any basic maintenance
  3. The same for me (Voyager in a GS this time 2 years ago)...3 cancellations later I'm holding out for a suite this time next year on Ovation....If this Govt can open up sporting venues where people are cheek by jowl screaming for their heroes or nightclubs where a tin of sardines wouldn't envy the social distancing why are they so pig headed about cruising
  4. Ovation of the Seas..December 7th to 14th..2022.. Sydney ,Tasmania and Adelaide..another rebook after yet another cancel by Royal
  5. 30% off Excursion and gifts saved us AU $100 so I'm not complaining....the cruise prices work out the same even with OBC added to the package though so I would stick to scouring the cruise planner
  6. Thanks for the "shocking" blog laughed my way through all of it ....you are a wonderful wordsmith
  7. Start with Edinburgh ...St Andrews for the open is a lovely village if a bit windy..there is a nice restaurant called the Dolls House in town ..We stayed at Aviemore in the Cairngorms then Inverness , travelled across to Skye then Loch Ness followed by Glasgow....from there down to Stratford upon Avon and onwards to London....it really depends on how much time you have and how willing you are to keep moving....Britain is full of wonderful places with history and scenery whichever route you take it will be rewarding
  8. Ovation of the Seas..December 7th to 14th..2022.. Sydney ,Tasmania and Adelaide..another rebook
  9. Thank you for your wonderful pictures .....you have cheered up an Aussie who is suffering cruise withdrawal
  10. my cruise next January has been cancelled on the crown and anchor login ....no email yet from Royal
  11. if its New year why not have both staterooms bring 2 bottles of champagne each in their carry on luggage......I'm sure you could have some nice toasts on the balconies
  12. Sorry for your recent loss Jim....I hope you enjoy your cruise ...I wouldn't sweat the small changes to the key cancel it and move on
  13. Sleeper on the overnight train from Amsterdam to Copenhagen leaves around 1800 arrives the next day about 1000 hrs https://www.bahn.com/en
  14. this happened to me for 2 weeks after I rebooked a cruise when my previous cruise was cancelled it eventually catches up ...I guess they are really busy
  15. Finally received FCC to apply to suite booking .....hoping it goes ahead this time ..
  16. Ovation of the seas Jan 21st 2022 Sampler SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA replaces the above.... booked again
  17. The lift and shift are for 1 year away ...FCC if you do not request refund hope that helps
  18. Rebooked cruise on Ovation ....one day later and same owners suite...... wait for it.....priced at AUD3001 dollars more than the original, admittedly the earlier cruise was a lift and shift X 2 times from 2 previous cancellations so it progressively increased in price over time but as I feel I will have one foot in the grave if I have to put it off for another year with another lift and shit I bit the bullet with the FCC, in the long run it will cost an extra $2175.......a shame as I had already final paid it...it goes to prove my husband is right..I am addicted....oops I meant lift and shift ..or did I?
