Soon as we left Sydney Harbour the seas seemed to become very rough. We had a swell of about 4 metres. We did however leave on time which was good.
Was surprised to see that the Carnival Internet rates and stuff has changed in a significant way. You can no longer get any sort of pay by hour rate, which I must admit seriously sucks. We only tend to use the internet to pay bills while away, however now you can’t do that and what’s available is very expensive and doesn’t suit our usage/requirements. This is a major negative in my opinion. You can read a bit more about that on the following blog post here.
It was certainly good to be back on board, as our last Carnival Cruise was back in August/September 2015 when we took the same ship (Carnival Spirit) from Singapore to Sydney (post it being in Dry Dock for 2 weeks for updates).
Below is a few images from the day. I wanted to focus on the food (from dinner in this case);
I did manage to also consume a Guys Burger during lunch time after boarding. Something I had been looking forward too prior to the trip for a number of weeks.
