thumbs up for free colored champagne!
I have cruised many times with Royal Caribbean and have earned enough nights (after the NZ cruise) to be a Platinum member! Woo hooo! And lucky for Matt, when we got married, he automatically got upgraded to my point status too.
us with the Captain
First up: Milford Sound. We arrived around 7am. Matt and I got up and stood on the balcony and enjoyed the view.
it was really cold out!
Unfortunately the pictures just don't do it justice. So, here is a video of Milford Sound.
Next up: Doubtful Sound.......
What an experience. I really can't even put into words how beautiful it was out there. We would just stand on the balcony and stare up at the amazing cliffs. Because of the rough terrain surrounding the Fiordlands, most people do not get to see what we saw. They are typically only accessible by air and sea. Because of that, I am so happy we chose to do the cruise. We would have missed out on a lot had we just hit a few cities in New Zealand instead.
Stay tuned: Our first port visits are up tomorrow.....Dunedin and Akaroa!
