It's been a while. Yes, I still owe you the darjeerling tea. Mimi and I are booked on the Star Princess for the Auckland to Sydney itinerary on Jan. 4, 2004. I just reread your great review and got all woozy again during the "48 hours of hell" segment. I'm raring to go but my better half seems to be getting cold feet due, primarily to world conditions and the llooonnnggg flights.
Do you still consider this a "must do" cruise and is it really worth the long trip. It will be our 40th wedding anniversary trip and I want to make sure it is extra special.
