  1. Yes . Living full time on a cruise ship is about the same a# full time care in an upmarket rest home or village .....with one major proviso... you must be healthy and fully able to look after and care for yourself. Moral of the story...... Cruise NOW .
  2. I found their web site once which gave the conditions of purchasing. It was quite involved. You had to prove not only assets over and above a certain figure ,but you also had to prove an annual income that would cover all outgoings on the ship . Any owner is seriously rich .
  3. No . My thoughts were along the line that they know they can’t do much about what has happened, but by reviewing the situation they could arrive at clearer guidelines as to who may have the authority to prevent/allow ships from docking .
  4. I think there is more at play with this move than who did what and when . Clarification is being sought as to the powers of the Authorities to accept or decline a ship visit and which Authority should hold that power .
  5. Where do you think all the eggs come from on board ? When I first started cruising I was told they keep hens down below ,feed them all the scraps from the dining room , and collect nice fresh eggs . Its a great system as they use the droppings for fuel and when they stop laying they make great chicken fillets .
  6. From midnight tonight everyone entering NZ will have to enter a quarantine facility for 14 days . No self isolating at home .
  7. 1 hectare = 2 1/2 acres If that was barn it would be huge .πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ₯πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
  8. Update on one of Dunedin’s attractions... In case you missed this on the Ports of Call board
  9. The OBC for shareholders is simply a marketing tool . Carnival knows that anyone who can afford 100 shares has disposable income to spend and are therefore a target market .
  10. We don’t have special times for seniors . They just go to the head of the line , show their Gold Card and are shown in . Some stores have brought in text queuing. You register at the door then wait in your car for your turn .Not seen Any shortages here yet . No shortage of flour ,the problem has been that the packaging of the flour can’t keep up with the panic buying ,so our market is selling it in plain plastic bags .
  11. GOOD NEWS Dunedin has regained the title of steepest street again . A remeasure by the Gluiness Book of Records has found that the claim by the Welsh village was Measured incorrectly. https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/back-your-backyard/120918309/baldwin-st-wins-back-title-of-worlds-steepest-from-welsh-challenger
  12. The cruising industry is in a state of utter confusion at the moment. Imagine the chaos in the kitchens that prepare the tens of thousands of meals for everyday consumption .Imagine the chaos in the supply chain. ......( eg ....cancel that order for a thousand tons of prime steaks .....we don’t need 1 million eggs this month. etc ) Cruises are planned months if not years ahead . I have a feeling that any concern for cruising in Australia by the cruise lines will be way down their agenda .
