  1. Yes, we used the CAT Bus when we were there earlier this year.
  2. The Perth Mint could be another option. We enjoyed our time there.
  3. DOH! 🤦‍♂️ How did I miss that! Yes, it’s Serenade of the Seas. It was advertised on that other social media. I didn’t price check with the cruise line or with any other TA.

  8. I’m reminded of our first cruise on Voyager OTS. DW & I were walking along the Royal Promenade and a watch in a shop window caught my eye. I wasn’t in the market for a new watch but it was a very nice looking men's watch and very reasonably priced at $125. I had a second look and realised I’d misread the price tag. It was actually $125,000. 😱 And US Dollars at that! Needless to say we kept walking. I decided that if I had that sort of money to spend on a watch I’d employ someone to walk 3 paces behind me to tell me the time when I asked!
  9. This morning DW shared a "memory" on social media. It was a photo of us taken on a cruise 8 years ago. I realised that I wore the same shirt on our most recent cruise last week! 😱
  10. I have a pair of sea bands which work on acupuncture points on the wrists. I bout The for $2 from the Reject Shop instead of paying $30 at the chemist. I’m not sure if they do anything, if it has a placebo effect, or if I wouldn’t get sick anyway. But I figure that they don’t do any harm. I started to feel a little queasy part way through our last cruise (last week) so I popped the sea bands on. I also opened a packet of crystallised ginger (yum!) that gets packed into the suitcase each cruise. I later looked at the best before date on the ginger and it was 2016! That packet has been on a lot more cruises than I realised. It still tasted OK, though.
  11. We had 2 shore excursions cancelled on our recent cruise on Golden Princess. As a result our onboard account had a healthy credit balance at the end of the cruise. How long will it take for Princess to refund this amount to our credit card?
  12. Here is a link to the other thread https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/2711336-live-from-explorer-dream/
  13. There’s some good prices for Royal Caribbean cruises out of Sydney in February and March 2020.
  14. I didn’t realise you were on the same cruise as us, Sarah. We joined in Adelaide! We’re in E219 if you want to say g’day.
