Cruising again—Sydney to PNG and Back

Cruising again—Sydney to PNG and Back

WE'RE OFF AGAIN—OUR FIFTH CRUISE OF THE YEAR.  We are on Holland America's Maasdam again—third time's a charm they say—this time up the coast of Oz to Papua New Guinea and back.

   That's the Ticket — AU$5 to the cruise terminal

We were both coughing from last night's smoke and the car was covered in ash this morning.  It took longer than expected to drive the 100km back to the rental garage—Sydney traffic, even on Saturday, is awful.  Instead of using a taxi or Uber, we walked to the Mascot train station and for about $3 got a train to Circular Quay and our ship.  Boarding was unusually smooth and we were aboard in time for lunch.  Surprisingly, once aboard we were forbidden to go ashore again.

We don't expect to have internet connections along the way but you never know.  So check in from time to time and we'll see you in three weeks.
