We're now on board the Dawn Princess and there's a window of opportunity to access the internet before the ship departs. There's a lot of information about the ship on the internet, and so far, there haven't been any big surprises.
Initial thoughts? Very mixed group, quite a lot of "seniors", but others as well Boarding arrangements - efficient enough but there were a lot of people, so all up it took us an hour from arriving to getting to our cabin.
We've just departed and now have a few "sea days" getting across the Tasman Sea to Auckland. I've brought a few books to read. I wonder if they will be enough to keep my occupied!
