Five Days to Go

Monday, 20 January 2014

Most of our commitments have now been fulfilled and we're starting to get serious about selecting, sorting and packing. Despite our previous experience with cruise travel the itinerary and time of year have a significant impact on the clothing to be packed.

An increase to the number of electronic devices that need to be charged has also changed the range and number of cables that have to be included.

In addition to the general link to my 365 project I will attempt to include a link to today's specific image. This link should take you to today's image http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-01-20

This is a more general link to my project is http://365project.org/tonydebont/365

Busy Weeks Ahead

Tuesday, 31 December 2013

It is New Year's Eve and I'm trying to prepare things for the cruise which starts in just over four weeks from now. It would be nice to think that there was plenty of time to prepare. In the real world there are a number of appointments and commitments that need to be kept.

Later this week we will be driving to North Sydney for my sister's Golden Jubilee marking her 50 years of convent life. We will be there for three nights before heading for Scone to spend some time with No2 daughter.

On our way back from Scone I have a regular appointment with the specialist. The car will need to be serviced and there's ongoing issues with a recent repair that has left the rain-sensor inoperable.

We've also accepted a wedding invitation, a podiatrist appointment and selecting and packing clothes for this cruise.

Will provide a further update when we're closer to the start of the cruise.

The Itinerary

Saturday, 9 November 2013

This will be our seventh sailing with Princess Cruises in less than two years and we will have completed 151 nights. This will qualify us as 'Elite' level passengers from now on with all the perks available in their Captain's Circle program.

There will be three 'new' ports for us on this cruise and we're looking forward to revisiting the others.
I will try to keep up the daily postings whilst at sea.
