  1. Hey Todd, great info mate, we have actually talked about trying to squeeze in a short visit to Vancouver as we have heard it is beautiful. Having said that, my wife will divorce me if we fly all the way to the US and don't see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at universal so ultimately time will be the deciding factor. Being such a long cruise work commitments will mean our options before embarking will be limited. Glad to hear you have had the pleasure of a visit to our great land down under. As with the US, you could easily spend a year here and still not see all the amazing sights and experiences available.
  2. Cheers Todd, I live in Australia mate so will be flying to Seattle (via LA) to cruise home. Really appreciate the tips though, never having been to Hawaii or Fiji before. We did Noumea, Lifou and Mystery Island on Rhapsody last year but would welcome a second visit to those places.
  3. Hi all, my wife and I are considering a 24 night cruise from Seattle to Sydney and would love to hear from anyone who has done this cruise before. We are concerned that due to the length of the cruise, fresh fruit and food may run out, entertainment by be not up to usual standards and staff numbers may be down therefore service and attention to guests might be less than what we are used to. TIA.
  4. Good morning good people, I am a newbie to this board and a newbie to cruising so please forgive me if I come across as ignorant. My wife and I cruised on Rhapsody of the seas recently and stayed in a Grand Suite directly under the pool deck. We chose mid ship as we were advised this would be best to avoid possible motion sickness. It was our first cruise so we didnt know if we would get seasick or not. Unfortunately most nights we were kept awake by the scraping of tables/chairs across the pool deck by staff cleaning etc. It was very loud. Soon we are going on Voyager of the seas and have picked a suite forward of the ship to hopefully avoid the pool deck noise. We are a bit worried about the up and down movement though. Is it normal for noise from the pool deck to be this loud or maybe it was just on Rhapsody? Not talking about evening noise from music playing or other guests just from 3am noise from staff scraping tables and chairs around the deck? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. BTW, we loved the cruise so much we immediately booked another the noise was the only nitpick we had.
