Post 2018 World Cruise get-togethers

Friday, 01 Nov. 2019 - Springwood, Logan / Brisbane

Another fabulous catch up at the Lions Club in Springwood with around 23 people attending. So many wonderful people - it's like a big happy family.

  


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.

Home to Brisbane!

Arrival was at the Multi-purpose Grain Terminal, located at the mouth of the Brisbane River on Fishermans Island. This is directly opposite the new cruise terminal (currenly under construction).

At Sea

Friday, 04 Oct. 2019

 

Last day at sea for this cruise, travelling from Sydney to Brisbane, Australia.

 

 

 

 

Thanks to everyone (friends and crew) onboard the Sea Princess for another wonderful holiday. On reflection, some highlights included:

 

  

  

  

We cruised a total of 21,647 km at an average speed of 33 km/h. Some onboard highlights:

  • The company of old and new friends
  • Our daily ukulele jams, concluding with a Tribute to the Beatles concert in the Atrium
  • Playing chess most sea days – some very intense
  • Being looked after by the wonderful staff and crew
  • The production shows
  • The excellent food. We brought our own wine – much better quality and considerably cheaper, even after $15 per bottle corkage.
