THIS WAS OUR FIRST AND LAST VT CRUISE.... BUT AT THE TIME WE DID NOT KNOW
THAT TRIP ADVISOR WOULD SHUT DOWN VIRTUALTOURIST IN JUST 3 MONTHS.

20 VT MEMBERS HAD JUST ENJOYED 5 FUN LOVING, ACTION PACKED DAYS IN AND
AROUND SYDNEY INCLUDING BEING INVOLVED IN A MAJOR FERRY CRASH THE DAY
BEFORE THIS CRUISE. THANK GOODNESS NONE OF US WERE SEVERELY INJURED,
ALTHOUGH WE WERE A LITTLE SORE AND BRUISED.

HERE IS OUR BIG BOAT :)

HUBBY AND I LIKE ALL SORTS OF HOLIDAYS FROM CAMPING THROUGH TO 5 STAR LUXURY,
BEACH HOLIDAYS, WINING AND DINING HOLIDAYS, WILDFLOWER SPOTTING, COUNTRYSIDE
DRIVING, MOUNTAINS, DESERT, ANYTHING OFF THE BEATEN PATH AND ESPECIALLY MIXING WITH
PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

WE OFTEN HEAR OF PEOPLE THAT DON'T LIKE CRUISING. MOST OF THEM HAVE NEVER BEEN ON
A CRUISE, SO THAT TO ME IS NOT A REAL INFORMED DECISION. YES, ON A CRUISE YOU ARE
CONFINED TO THE SHIP, BUT THERE IS NO ROOM FOR BEING BORED. THERE ARE SO MANY
ACTIVITIES TO CHOOSE FROM TO FILL YOUR DAY - TRIVIA, BEER PONG, COMPETITIONS, MINI
GOLF, WATER SLIDES, A CASINO, SHOPPING, PROFESSIONAL PICTURES, DANCING,
NIGHTLY SHOWS, KAREOKE ETC.

PLUS ALL OF YOUR ACCOMMODATION, ENTERTAINMENT AND FOOD IS INCLUDED. THE ONLY
THING YOU PAY FOR IS ALCOHOL..... MIND YOU IT IS EASY TO SPEND ALOT ON GROG :)

Wow, that's a big ship! I have been on a few cruises but nothing so large - the biggest was the Marco Polo when we went to Antarctica, which I think takes about 800 passengers although was only half full for that trip to meet environmental regulations. The others were a Rhine cruise and the Galapagos one I'm currently blogging about, on a small boat with just 16 passengers. I loved that, even though you don't get the facilities of a cruise ship. By the way, what's with the corridor lined with giraffes?!!

Oh I would love to do one of those Rhine River cruises!
Haha yes, the nature walk. That was just a quiet walk that had seating near some of the port holes for sitting quietly and reading a book etc.
