  1. This was a real highlight for us M. We loved that place and could have spent more time there. Thanks for the memory!
  2. Agree with Mysty. If you put your life on hold because someone might die whilst you are away, you might as well resign yourself to the fact that your travel days are over, as you are getting older and that scenario is getting worse. My best friend died whilst I was on a cruise and we could not get back for the celebration of his life. Everyone understood that, so I recorded a speech, emailed it to my friends wife, and they played it at his service. I have two children, 5 grandchildren and a lot of friends and we will not schedule our lives around the thought that they may die whilst we are away. We just completed the Tale of Tales 2019 World Cruise where we made friends with Mysty, Mr and over 300 wonderful people. Fancy missing out on what was the best holiday we have ever had in our lives. Celebrate life, live it and cope with events as they occur.
  3. Well put DCC. A fantastic trip made even better by the wonderful people we met like you.
  4. I think the Darwin Frangipani is one of the nicest there is with deep green shiny leaves. Lovely!
  5. Back at ya Musty. I do hope we can catch up again as we really enjoyed your company. I clearly remember a number of get togethers but especially the night with Pat and Mona in The Restaurant (OR Terazza, Remember the company but hazy on the venue)
  6. Hi Addy, we had never sailed Silversea or been on a World Cruise before completing the 2019 Tale of Tales cruise. All I can say is that you are in for a treat above anything you can imagine. Unbelievable crew, passengers, excursions, special events, food and drink and it seems to get better and better. Loved Musty and Mister and all the CC Team. We aren't cruises as such but would do this again in a heartbeat. Mysty will faint when she sees I have made a contribution. Well done Mysty. Have a great time!
  7. Thanks M, a wonderful night was had, Thanks to the wonderful Lady WhisperTeam. No one could do it better.
  8. Great photos DC and M. I could actually get them up this time and wasn't giddy from watching that rotating wheel.
  9. Got the invite this morning. Think I missed one. Hope we can get an area away from the piano this time. Good shots again Mysty!
  10. Great night tonight Mysty and Mister. We can't believe how wonderful sailing with Silversea is. We are now spoiled forever. Thanks for helping to spoil us.
  11. Channel 7, drone and spectacular site but we didn't order good weather. Great event anyway.
  12. Thanks for starting this string Mysty. We are CC virgins but have found the communications very helpful. Met T1 and T2 a few times whose names I will not Whisper. Love the understated refirb with some really lovely people on board. So many return world trippers that we almost felt out of it on the first night with all the hugging and kissing going on. I wanted to ask could a Silversea and World Cruise Virgin join in without the "been here before" qualification. There are some really lovely friendly people on board. It was a shame that the old gent had his fall. At 95 it is hard to avoid an injury with a fall like that. The reassuring thing to know is that if we have an accident, the crew will make sure we are safe, even if it means they have to turn the ship around. Well done SS! Maybe we are a bad omen as the last cruise we went on we had to turn round halfway between Melbourne and NZ for a really ill passenger. The shame with that trip was it meant Celebrity Solstice could not meet the schedule to sail into Milford and Dusky Sounds, which was the highlight of the trip. Once again comforting to know the lengths they went to, to save someone's life. Well Mysty you remain a mystery as do all except James Bond and T2, however all will soon be revealed. C U on the 9th.
  13. Thanks for your wishes mysty and what a lovely thought. What a way to start a year; one of the lucky .000? % of the population. To all CC's, all the best for a fantastic year.
  14. Look for big, and look for the smile but the tan and the hair disappeared years ago. Looking forward to saying "giday!"
  15. Thanks mysty! Hope you had a lovely day. WE had a great family Christmas Dinner at about 23 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, overlooking the water. A really beautiful day..........how lucky are we! See you next week!
