>From R3 to Coral - big difference. Coral as you have noticed hit a chord with me. She is a very fine large ship. I do like the thought of smaller ships at the moment. Really small like for 2.<
We'd have an interesting experience going from the Coral, to the R3 and if we book the Star, an even bigger ship than the Coral. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Glad to have the choices and the experiences.
>. Do the NZ to Australia - it would be fun, just a slog to get here.<
We will only do this cruise if I can get business class FF seats. As you say, it is too long a way to go coach.
