Sydney Today

View 2012 Hawaii Millennium on greynomadm's travel map.

Up early this morning to capture the last 'at sea' sunrise. I mistakenly used yesterday's sunrise time and spent an extra 30 minutes waiting. Some extensive clouds made for a reasonable experience. I also observed that the ship was 'rolling' by up to 10 degrees either side of horizontal. It leads me to wonder if the ship has stabilisers and if they've been deployed.

Breakfast and then off to the Theatre for the last lecture by Alan Dowty on the topic of Shackleton and his epic voyage to Antarctica. A tale of amazing determination and tenacity. Next off to collect our Whisky purchases prior to packing it away for tomorrow's disembarkation.

Up to deck 12 for our approach to Sydney and onto our temporary berth at Garden Island. Later this afternoon we will be relocated to the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay.

Spent most of the afternoon packing all our gear

The relocation to Overseas Passenger Terminal was delayed due to the late departure of the ship occupying the berth. We were in the dining room for our last main meal aboard when we were on the move. Quite an operation to move the vessel just a short distance.

Spent some time on Deck 12 taking photos of the Sydney skyline.
