Brisbane meet-up

Wednesday, 31 July 2019

It’s a massive 440 days until sail-away for our Northern Lights cruise to Norway, but that didn’t stop a few of us keen travellers getting to know each other at the Central Railway Hotel in Brisbane’s CBD. It was lovely to meet everyone.

In the photo are Lyn, Helen, David, Shannon and Michelle (L to R):

Post 2018 World Cruise get-togethers

Friday, 26 July 2019 - Springwood, Logan / Brisbane

It was a wonderful catch up with around 30 people today.  We caught up on the past 12 months and heard about the many awesome future adventures that people are planning.

Thanks Alison and Phillip for organising. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Saturday, 10 Nov 2018 - Sandgate, Brisbane

Around 40 people attended the first Brisbane post-cruise get-together in the Northern suburbs of Brisbane. A wonderful way to catch-up with the many friends we had made on the cruise. Unfortunately, no photos from today.

Friday, 26 Oct 2018 - Labrador, Gold Coast

John and Jan organised a post cruise catch-up on the Gold Coast attended by around 14 people. We also had a special guest, the World Cruise's Cruise Director Corey - who was in town for his birthday celebrations.
