We also saw all their admin offices, laundry facilities, trash/recycling, etc. It was really interesting to see how much work and effort goes in to making the ship function properly. All of the people work so hard and are really passionate about their jobs. And each job, no matter what it is, is vital to making it all run smoothly. It's a well-oiled machine.

the engineering room. Where are all the hot guys shovelling coal into the burners??
Our last and probably coolest stop was The Bridge. We spoke with the Captain for a bit and then one of his Officer's game a small presentation. They let us take as many pictures as we wanted and even sit in the Captain's chair!
Our room is right there

This little excursion was one of my favorite things we did! And it was the perfect thing to do while we were at sea, lounging around all day. If you ever go on a cruise, ask about the all access tour, it was really fun!
The next morning we pulled into Sydney bright and early. We woke up just as the sun was coming up and got to see the most amazing views of the Opera House.
After 14 days at sea, touring the beautiful country of New Zealand, and experiencing all it has to off, they made us leave. :( We were very sad to go, but also super excited for the next adventure....Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef!!
