After leaving Fiordland, we had two sea days (three evenings) heading west towards Melbourne. The first night after leaving the New Zealand coast was a little bumpy, but after that things smoothed down.

We arrived in Melbourne on schedule, and are now waiting to disembark. Like most other things on board, this is a highly organised procedure, with passengers being allocated a specific disembarkation time. Most of the time slots are for passengers with "independent arrangements", which seems to confirm my impression that a large number of those travelling have been from Melbourne and nearby - a market that Princess appear to have tapped into very successfully.
