What 10 days to go!!

Well you can imagine my surprise one morning when I turned on the computer and the Princess Countdown Clock was down to double digits.... “Hang on, did I go to sleep and wake up 290 days later, where am I”.... then I remembered.....

We were fortunate enough to snap up a very cheap deal to cruise the Queensland Coast on the Dawn Princess. Little did I realise that when the countdown clock sets itself, it sets to your next cruise.... so won’t I get a surprise when we get back and find that the world cruise countdown will be around 200 days!!

Another bonus  is that our good friends Ross and Lesley from our first cruise will be coming with us... We all managed to get this deal for HH Obstructed view for under $1000...... now I know there are others out there that have also booked the same deal .... but when you look at the deck plans there are only 2 HH cabins.... standard joke is that we will all be sleeping in the same cabin ... hence the cheap price!!... lets hope for an upgrade!!

Anyway this is going to be a good rehearsal for next year... we will take along all our bits and pieces and see how well they work.... and decide on other things we think we need and those we won’t .....

We are really looking forward to the break and the extra 12 days that will get me to Platinum by Dubai!!


  1. Long cruises have to wait until retirement, in the meantime, looking forward to cruising virtually along with you.

  2. Looking forward to reading about it!

    Pity the 'Princess' hasn't got a glass bottom!
