Default Great news for Aussies

Just heard that Carnival is relocating Carnival Spirit down to Australia permanently Oct 2012. Finally we will have a fun ship. Wish it was a newer ship but it is a good start and sure beats some of the rust buckets we have had in the past.
I hope they don't change too much in relation to the onboard experience.

I thought you might say someone found the spigot.

Congrads on getting another cruise option.

Radiance of the Seas is coming as well, she's much nicer than Carnival - consider her this year.

I did read something about using the local currency and tipping not allowed.

Is the tipping thing a local custom?

That is really a good news. Mean while in the Port Canaveral the Disney Dream has arrived. It is a very nice cruise ship. Thanks to Disney.

That may be true, but Spirit is still a fine ship. So much of having a good cruise depends on what you yourself make it.

People receive much higher wages over here than the USA for service jobs so tipping is not neccessary or customary .Most Aussies though appreciate good service and will still tip when appropriate
