Work has been pretty busy recently – we’ve been down on people in my team for the last 8 weeks due to people taking leave and getting sick – so it’s been hard to find time to enjoy life recently. But one thing that has perked me up (other than moving to a new house) is the return of cruise ships out my window at work.
The Sydney cruise ship season seems to kick off in October and go through to March or April. After that only the Pacific Sun was in this year, all the others were off cruising Alaska and other locations during their summer.
So far this year we have seen the new Pacific Dawn, the Sun Princess, the Sapphire Princess, Pacific Princess and the old Pacific Sun on her last Sydney based voyage. Other ships such as Statendam and the Seven Seas Mariner have stopped over at Circular Quay, but I don’t have a view of there.
