AS SEEN IN TRAVELLER: CONSTANT CRUISER
by Sally Macmillan
ROBERT & EVIE GAREB, NORTH BONDI, NSW
NUMBER OF CRUISES TAKEN 89
LAST CRUISE Two back-to-back, sevennight cruises on Celebrity Edge in Europe. Celebrity Edge is the latest Celebrity ship and has many new features, including the Magic Carpet. We booked this with ecruising.travel just after Celebrity started building it. We travelled with two other couples from Sydney and enjoyed it so much we have booked the same ship for a Greek Islands cruise next year.
NEXT CRUISE ecruising's POSH Cruise - Sydney to Tasmania on Majestic Princess. It's the first of three cruises on this ship, which we haven't sailed on before.
DREAM SHIP Difficult question. We have cruised on the 6400-passenger Harmony of the Seas - at the time the biggest in the world - down (in size) to Ponant's Le Laperouse, which carries 184 passengers. The bigger ships have bigger and more spectacular shows, while the smaller ships are more of a luxury. My preference is Harmony of the Seas, because of all the activities and entertainment. Evie's is Celebrity Edge.
DREAM CRUISE Sailing around the Greek Islands - so we have booked it!
DREAM PORT Sydney is spectacular, both arriving on a beautiful summer morning and departing in the evening. However, I'd still like to sail into Venice on a small ship.
BEST CRUISE TIP Always check the daily newsletter that's delivered to your cabin each evening for details of the next day's activities. Take a highlighter pen and mark off everything you want to do so you won't miss anything.
