Ohhh see I'm tempted by that lol! I'm planning on buying my wine at the port I think (can you remember if they had wine there?) so may just squeeze in a bottle of something else too!

We were on this cruise too a back to back with the med cruise so the weather in Sydney was quite a shock. Had a great time and enjoyed the fact that it was different to 2015. Sailing in to New York was magical.
Have already booked for next year.

Thanks for this great report... still slightly undecided as do like some time on deck sitting in the sun but not a deal breaker... sounds great sailing into New York and spending a few days there but do you think 3 nights is more than enough? although you did manage to do a hell of a lot sightseeing lol

This was our 2nd visit to NYC, 4 nights before & 4 nights this time, neither enough. Could have easily spent another couple of nights there.

Thanks for this... I could stretch to 4-5 nights as we like to stroll around places and do spur of the moment things after having a couple of things pre-booked

Can't believe I never noticed the scanners were before the shop, missed opportunity there! Blame it on it being our first cruise and being a bit overwhelmed but I will be more on the ball next time!
Ha ha that's funny, I bet we did!

Yeah we hadn't noticed either but got a nudge from others!

Yes they had wine but not a lot to choose from like the supermarkets, only San Miguel beer and maybe a couple of red and whites!

Yeah we're hoping for a different WBTA itinerary, fingers crossed 👍

Sounds like you have the WBTA bug 👍

3 nights was perfect Kev especially if you have a late flight home as we had a full day after the cruise and then until 6pm on our last day 👍
