  1. While I don't like to wish anything bad on others, especially at a time like this.....I hope a lot of people lose their jobs over this absolutely pathetic debacle!!!!
  2. Nothing more to say on this matter apart from "refer to other thread about the 2700 passangers allowed to disembark in Sydney and now 4 (so far) have been confirmed to be positive for the virus" Oh well. Stupid is as stupid does!!!!
  3. totally agree. If anyone in the AFL should get it, I would hope its the head honchos
  4. Why close our borders, issue warnings and alerts, insist on social distancing rules, and then have the AFL go ahead, with players tackling each other, high fiving each other, standing arm in arm or hugging each other for 3 hours. Is the precious AFL brand and the $$$ more important than human life. I am an AFL fan and have paid my membership for the season, but am disgusted that the decision was made to go ahead with the season. Clearly the message is that this is not as serious so why all the fuss!!!! ok. Rant over...
  5. I'm curious how they can allow the ship to dock in Melbourne during a clear ban on all cruise ships in Australia. I also think its pretty ridiculous that they actually sent a letter to all passengers telling them they are free to move about the ship while waiting to disembark. I know we can't leave people stranded on a cruise ship for 30 days, but why not at least quarantine them.
  6. very true. They finally answered and I have cancelled my April cruise unfortunately. This sucks but at least I have my Christmas and New Years cruise to look forward to now.
  7. For those that are trying to cancel a cruise with Royal Caribbean, good luck getting hold of them. I have been on hold for almost an hour so far.
  8. I have a cruise booked for April to South Pacific. I will not be cancelling. Firstly, because I have paid in full and dont want to lose a few thousand $, but secondly because I do not believe there is anything to be concerned about. My wife had the best response to her mother, who said she told her boss we were going on a cruise and he said he would never go on a cruise now. She just said "well its a good thing we never invited him to come along"
  9. I'll add to one of the other replies in that the best way to get to the airport, particularly as it is at peak traffic time, would be the train. Get the train right there at circular quay directly to the airport. I think it is about $18 each one way train ticket.
  10. Take the cost of the rum runners, and add the cost of the alcohol you will buy to fill them. Then take the cost of the alcohol you would buy on board for the same qty of alcohol. The difference in price is really not worth the risk. Just buy your drinks on board. I personally never buy a drinks package because I do not drink enough to justify the daily cost, especially as I am off the ship alot in the various ports. Remember to take into account how much you plan to drink EVERY DAY including the port days to see if a drink package is even worth it.
  11. Many years ago, long before I even moved to Australia, so probably about 25 years ago, I went to a Phil Collins concert. Of course we were not allowed to take alcohol in to the concert venue as we had to buy from the bars there. But who would want to lose their spot near the front to go to the bar to buy a drink. Se my brother, who was a paramedic, got me a few glucose drips from the hospital. We emptied them and filled them with alcohol and then strapped them round our stomachs so when were were searched and patted down (was no metal detector wands in those days) it just felt like we had a fat stomach. The funny part was all of us holding up these drip bags in the middle of the concert sipping out the tube. lol
  12. Hi all, On all previous cruises I had Traditional late seating in the MDR as this is what we have always preferred. On my next cruise that I have just booked, there are only 3 of us, and I wanted MTD, but when making the booking I could not click on that as an option, only on early or late traditional. How would I go about changing this to MTD? Do I do it by contacting RCI before, or wait until I get on board and change it. My booking was done directly with RCI on their website.
  13. Please add me: 9 April 2020, Voyager of the Seas, 10 nights South Pacific 22 December 2020, Ovation of the Seas, 13 nights South Pacific & New Zealand Christmas/New Years
