Cruise Control – In the Dock

Wellington, North Island, New Zealand

I have to admit that I didn’t go ashore in Wellington. I’m afraid the lack of sleep has caught up with me so I stayed aboard in an attempt to catch up. Dad and I won a round of trivia … finally. It’s a good thing we were only in it for the fun. The prize was a little Princess torch. And, because we were in port and there were so few people still on board and playing trivia, everyone who played that day got a prize.

The others did go ashore and enjoyed themselves … a ride up in the cable car …P1020755 P1020756 P1020757 P1020759 P1020762 P1020765

… a walk back down through the gardens which, to judge from Stu’s photos, are lovely …

20150311_133952I do definitely want to go back to Wellington to visit the Zealandia Sanctuary which we heard about on our first trip in 2012. Speaking of which, I must get around to writing that one up.

Today I lodged a formal complaint with Passenger Services about the noise in the cabin. Whether it was that or whether we just got to the top of the list I don’t know. But while we were at dinner we got notification that we were being moved. You’ve never seen two people pack their bags so fast. And, wow, we got a balcony. Not as swish as the mini suite my sister got, but hey, it’s quiet and that’s all I cared about. We were pretty impressed with having the balcony and, if we do another cruise, might just consider getting one.


Thanks for travelling with us. We'd love to hear what you think.
