This was supposed to happen last year for my 70th birthday but New Zealand and Australia were still not ready to accept international visitors in early 2022, so Holland America moved our booking to 2023 and switched it from Oosterdam to identical sister ship Noordam. The itinerary was also a week earlier in the year and one or two port changes but the cruise was one day longer at no extra cost and it covered my birthday, so we decided to stick with it...

For this trip, Andrew & I would be joined by Angie, Carol and Julia - and we were all going to have to fly a very long way!
