Let’s Cruise…

Boy, it’s been some time since I’ve been here… sorry everyone but life just got in the way and decided to keep me pretty busy but here I am back to share some more with everyone who reads this humble little blog of mine… and thank you to those who do read it, I hope you enjoy what you read… ☺

I just thought it was time for a cruise update since I have under 6 months now before I go on my first ever cruise from Adelaide, Australia to New Zealand and back to Adelaide for 17 nights on board the Golden Princess.

In the time I haven’t updated this blog, I’ve gotten a passport, paid for the travel insurance, planned shore excursions, and met more people online from several different forums who will be on the same cruise and have regular chats with them, I hope I get to meet them once we are on the ship.

During our last cruise season when it was here, which starts in October and goes until April, I’ve seen at our local ship terminal at Outer Harbour the Ovation of the Seas, the Queen Mary 2, Radiance of the Seas and a couple of P&O ships that do cruises in local waters.

When Radiance of the Seas visited, it being roughly the same size as the Golden Princess, I walked the length of the ship from the roadside next to where the terminal is situated and back again to take photos of the ship and to get an idea of her size from one end of the ship to the other. The other thing was I wanted to see her next to the terminal so I could get an idea of how big she is. It did give me a relatable reference for the size of the Golden Princess in my mind, even if Radiance of the Seas is a newer ship and a different cruise line altogether.

When the cruise season returns to South Australia in October, I hope to go see at the Outer Harbour Terminal these ships when they visit our shores Sun Princess, Voyager of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas (for a second time) and Radiance of the Seas (for a second time).

I haven’t been on a cruise yet but I think I’m already addicted to cruising!

Until next time

Today a friend and I went to the Outer Harbour Cruise Terminal today as Ovation of the Seas is in port for its first voyage into Australian waters on its repositioning cruise from Singapore to Sydney as it stopped in Adelaide.

I think half of Adelaide came out to see this ship today as it is such a nice day weather wise and ships that come to Adelaide are such a big draw card. I’m happy that over the next few years more cruise ships will stop here in Adelaide.
