Carnival Legend Honolulu to Sydney

Dear Carnival Line, I think most customers feel that if you want us to spend money with you, a really great way to facilitate enjoyable spending is where you might create an environment in which people actually want to spend money with your business. Where Carnival in my opinion fail dismally is that they appear to be blatantly trying to create an environment where their customers are forced to spend with them at excessively inflated prices or go without.

Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Honolulu

Sheraton Princess Kaiulani located in Waikiki Honolulu really is a "has been" property.

On picking up the room access cards after checking in earlier in the day at the start of a seven night stay the check-in person banged on about checkout time being 11:00AM. She even wrote the checkout time of 11:00 AM down for us on the little cardboard folder for the room swipe cards before handing them to us just incase we didn't comprehend what she was saying..

If we had not have been locked into a prepaid deal we would have checked out within 5 minutes of seeing the room.

My Cruises

We booked flights, hotel and a cruise with My Cruises more than 365 days in advance.. Asked them to secure the flight and seats when they became available and had to pay the full deposit early as they claimed the flights were not refundable even though it was the full Jetstar Business Max tickets which Jetstar Claim are refundable.

Mantra Pavillion Wagga Wagga

It has been many years since last staying as a guest at the Pavillion Motel in Wagga Wagga, last time was back in the late 1980's or very early 1990's at that time I think that I recall this property was part of the Flag Inn's chain.

We were in Wagga Wagga this time for a march out parade at Kapooka and we had 3 rooms, for 3 nights, all on the ground floor. The Pavillion has not changed a lot in layout since last time but it is well maintained, the rooms are clean and adequate.

Museum Art Hotel Wellington

Our stay at the Museum Art Hotel in Wellington New Zealand was awesome! We arrived late at night and were upgraded to a penthouse which was huge!! This room covered the entire end of the building with a bedroom at either end, one with an ensuite, a kitchen with everything and a very spacious living and dining area.

If we were to return and it was affordable we would choose the penthouse again without hesitation!

Rydges Sydney Airport

Rydges Sydney Airport 8 Arrivals Court Sydney International Airport is a very convenient property for accommodation that would suit anyone leaving the Sydney International Airport very early in the morning or arriving later in the evenings. This removes the stress of traveling in Sydney during peak times, especially when arriving for a departing flight. The hotel is located right outside the Sydney International airport terminal and we have previously used the property prior to early departures and when arriving back into Sydney International terminal late.

The Crown Hotel Napier

We spent five nights at the Crown Hotel Napier during October 2016. This 1 bedroom apartment style located close to the water featured a pleasant outdoor deck area and the hotel is located not far from Napier center and there is a selection of cafes and restaurants close to the hotel.

Self parking was available below the hotel with lift access to the rooms on higher levels, there is a self serve laundry available and the room was clean modern and well appointed.
