In total we have visited 15 ports and enjoyed 32 sea days including one day cruising the Suez Canal.

When we arrived in Sydney we transferred to the Intercontinental where we had a Harbour View

Suite booked for our final week before we flew home on 21st November.


We visited our good friends Iain and Irina in Dubai and enjoyed dinner with them. We also spent one

night aboard but alongside in Dubai so had plenty of time to experience the sights.

When in Singapore we visited Raffles Hotel and the Long Bar, naturally we had the mandatory

Singapore Sling and ate some Monkey Nuts dropping the husks on the floor, as you do.
