  1. If memory serves, it wasn't so long ago that we had, for what feels like such a fleeting period, a Radiance, Voyager and Quantum class ship all sailing out of Sydney. The perfect mix if you ask me.
  2. I looked into cruising Pacific Explorer from Freo to Exmouth for the solar eclipse in April 2023. It's a five-nighter and you don't get off the ship, but you'd be anchored off Exmouth for the eclipse. It seemed like a good idea but then I Youtubed the Pacific Explorer. I was put off completely. I'm literally trying to arrange accommodation in the caravan park instead, LOL.
  3. Would the government have been consulting with Royal about this? No point building such a facility unless the cruiselines intended to utilise it for their biggest ships, right?
  4. Foreigners are allowed in. So if cruises resume I don't see why not.
  5. In Jan 2020 out of Singapore it was free. That was back in the before times, though. As a side note, I view iFly as a "one and done" activity. It takes 30-60 minutes from start to finish, including suiting up, a briefing, demo, and waiting for everybody to have their turn. And all for a 60 second go, where you feel uncoordinated and rely on the instructor at all times. It's a fun little adventure but not worthy of repeating regularly. Just my view.
  6. Yeah, I've been to those two islands on both Radiance and Explorer.
  7. I'm not sure. Are other lines visiting? Is it a covid thing? i.e. the locals don't want to risk it?
  8. In fact, it's a shame we won't have Voyager class either. Two Quantum class ships seems like overkill.
  9. Love Radiance. It's a shame we won't have that class of ship for the foreseeable future. Enchantment in 2023-24 might have to do.
  10. Those sailings have now been pulled from the website.
  11. fyi @Matt just some tidbits of news above ^^^
  12. So Quantum, Ovation and Enchantment for the season.
  13. Once The Twangster caught norovirus on a ship. After five days of excruciating pain, the virus died.
  14. When The Twangster stays in an interior cabin, he doesn’t turn the lights on, he turns the dark off.
  15. If The Twangster was onboard, the iceberg would've dodged The Titanic.
  16. Some say The Twangster is more myth than man.
  17. National cabinet also discussed allowing cruises again after biosecurity orders that had prevented them from operating in Australia were lifted. “The Commonwealth, NSW, Victoria and Queensland agreed to work with the industry to implement new protocols to enable the resumption of cruising over coming months,” a statement said. https://www.news.com.au/national/politics/national-cabinet-scott-morrison-orders-audit-to-check-australia-can-handle-flurona/news-story/53fd63a2e1ccb350299d427e677cafc0
  18. When are the sailings released? This morning I see only two sailings between April and June.
  19. This was in late November. Maybe Omicron has changed the rules back? https://cruisepassenger.com.au/news/exclusive-singapore-welcomes-australians-to-cruise-aboard-its-ships/
  20. Wasn't this due to change?? Australia is one of the VTL (Vaccinated Travel Lane) countries for Singapore entry and I read an article recently that they were opening up cruising too. Will see if I can find the article.
