Hi, I am going on this cruise and as far as I can tell it is a new cruise for Dawn Princess for this destination, hence no reviews. Sun Princess did a similiar one the same time this year but if you read the reviews it sounds like a bit of a disaster, with cancelled shore trips due to bad weather, etc., etc. I have a slightly pathetic question to ask which I may have to refer to the Princess line itself. I realise the onboard credit card payment will be in AUD and the shore excursions will be New Zealand dollars but I use the laundry rooms on board and you have to use coins for the soap powder. So.....which currency, (coins) do I bring on board for this? There, I told you it was a pathetic question!

Good question!! Be interested to know what the answer is. As the Princess Line are geared usually towards the American market perhaps it will be American Dollars!! Look forward to meeting you on the ship!!

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
