I've booked an apartment in Auckland for 2 weeks prior to the AU/NZ cruise. It seems like a convenient base to explore parts of New Zealand the Cruise won't take us to. It would be fun to connect in Auckland, and I'm putting this out so that its in our Vortexes ( or is it Vorticies ) for the LOA to act on. And also so we can pre-pave by communicating here.
I was on the Mexican Rivera and Caribbean Cruises.
Clearlight, I'm booked on the NZ/AS cruise too and plan on staying a week at each end of the cruise. I haven't even begun to think about plans yet. But it would be nice to connect with other Abers to explore. It's possible we could play. I need to do my research yet.
I was on the Caribbean cruise with you but I don't think we met.
HANGING OUT IN NEW ZEALAND PRIOR TO CRUISE
So far I've planned and paid for my trip till we get dropped
off in Sydney.
My plan for New Zealand prior to trip is to keep a place in Auckland and get travel passes for public transportation, and take train trips to see the sights. Sometimes this means staying over night somewhere and therefore paying double that night. NZ is much cheaper than Australia, so its doable.
