Cruise ships keep on coming


Sorry – I missed a few days on the blog. I hope you weren’t planning to go ship spotting in your harbour. This the list for this week – there’s is barely time to draw breath as the cruise ships come and go at the height of our season.
If seeing these ships inspires you to cruise, we can handle last-minute bookings for this year, or take early bookings for 2010. You could be arriving in Sydney March 8, 2010 aboard Queen Mary* 2 after a relaxing 23-night sailing from Hong Kong to Sydney for $5,500 – or arriving aboard Queen Victoria – 23 nights from San Francisco – for $4,330.00
