I booked this cruise yesterday. I still have cruise withdrawls, but this will help. Too early to book hotel and flights, but am researching things to do. Any suggestions?
No suggestions yet on the hotel and flights (or things to do), but we booked this cruise on Friday March 11th when Carnival "reopened" it. You may want to check out, if you haven't already, the Facebook page created by one of our fellow passengers: Van-Honolulu-Oz 2012
Am waiting for "official word" on the Honolulu to Sydney cruise, but the port of Sydney shows the Spirit arriving for the first time on October 17, 2012.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Many of you have been asking about 2012 schedules for the ships. The latest news is that we will be opening cruises through spring, 2013 on a rollout schedule that will have everything open for sale by April 15. Most of the fleet will be completed by March 31. Exciting times ahead.
