Sea Princess (2011) - Post 1

I recently had an irresistable offer on a 13 night New Zealand cruise, round trip from Sydney, aboard Sea Princess. As I have always found with Princess cruises, the food, and bar and dining room service were excellent. The ship seemed in very good condition, spotlessly clean and well maintained.

 12th. November - Departure Sydney

Traffic at Melbourne Airport prior to my flight to Sydney.

One of my favourite parts of any cruise - the moment the ship lifts off the wharf at the very start.

The old wharves at Pyrmont, now converted to apartments.

Passing under Sydney harbour bridge.

A Sydney pilot launch accompanying us to the heads, passing Circular Quay.

Two RAN ships at Garden Island naval base.

Symbols of Sydney harbour - a Manly ferry, Fort Dennison and the harbour bridge.

The forward mooring deck. At sea, this area is used as a workspace for refurbishing teak railings, deck chairs etc.

Passing Manly.

South Head.

Outside the heads, the pilot lauch waiting for the pilot to disembark.

  1. Beautiful photos, Tim. the shot of the ship passing under Sydney Harbour Bridge is quite spectacular. My fave is the high contrast almost B&W photo of the Bridge, ferry and Fort Denison.
