    On deck 5 is La Patisserie. You can get coffee and small pastries there and there is sitting areas around the atrium. Also, there is a coffee bar at the buffet. As for smoking, I saw a dedicated smoking area on the Promenade deck. And no smoking in the casino. (BTW the slots were awful and I would recommend avoiding them.)

    Post is up about our first day in Sydney. Remember that we had been to Sydney before. And that we had about 30 hrs of travel time just to get there. 😞 Around Australia Cruise - Our First Day in Sydney - Riding the Ferries

    I've got the first post up. It is about using the Opal card in Sydney. I did a lot of research before the trip and still found there was a lot I didn't know http://www.travelsnippetsandmore.com

    We took the train into Perth. The station is about a 15 minute walk ... for slow people like us. 😊 very easy to do. And if needed, there is a big grocery store (Coles) right opposite the station

    The ship docks in Busselton and it is a tender port. We were interested in a nature tour of the Margaret River area and coastline. I arranged a private tour with Margaret River Nature Tours and then posted the information to my roll call. We had 6 people and Dirk picked us up at 10 am and dropped us back at the pier at 5 pm ... with the last tender at 5:30. We had a great day. He is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend him. As for getting to the Heritage Trail, my recommendation is that you write to the Margaret River and Busselton's Visitor's Centers. We found the people at the visitors' centers extremely helpful. Perhaps they can suggest a way to arrange transportation to the trail.

    We did not take a tour for two reasons. One, we had been to Hobart before and taken a tour to Mt Fields which we greatly enjoyed. The second had to do with our time in port. We were arriving at noon which didn't leave much time for a tour out of town, with sunset around 6. So we decided to stay in town and visited Mawson's Hut on our own, which we found very interesting.
