i've never been on a cruise, although i've been on the sydney harbour ferry once, and i'm so excited. maz and i are going on a very short cruise this week, we have a balcony cabin. melbourne cruising to sydney. i must say i'm excited but the stuff up with the cost has been a pain. i made a huge mistake with the return from sydney but most of the $ have been refunded so it's not too bad. i'm travelling light with only carry on and can put anything i buy in maz's bag as she has check in luggage which is kind of her. apparently there's so much to do on board that we won't have time to sleep.
