Fiji Airways FJ910 Sydney to Nadi

Recently flew Business class with Fiji Airways flight number FJ910 we were on a Qantas code share ticketed as QF391. The aircraft used was an Airbus A330-243  - MSN 1394 - DQ-FJT first flight date recorded for this aircraft was 19/02/2013

The business class seats are good in this aircraft, not as good as the likes of Qantas 330 or Cathay or Emirates A380 but ok.

Rydges Sydney Central

Spent one Saturday night staying at the Rydges Sydney Central in Surry Hills, booked a Deluxe Room at a cost of $282.00 with breakfast included and parked a car in their carpark overnight which cost extra. The car parking is self parking below ground under the hotel at a cost of $40.00

We were emailed with an invitation to upgrade

Miller Apartments Adelaide

Recently stayed over a weekend with Miller Apartments in Adelaide, we booked direct with them as is our preference these days and received excellent communications from them leading up to the stay. We selected a 2 bedroom apartment and requested a two bathroom version as not all two bed apartments are guaranteed two bathrooms. We used their car park which is our preferred self park offering and is located in the basement of the complex.

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.
