Darwin – Cairns

Darwin

Our ship, the Celebrity Solstice, docked in Darwin today.

March 5th

A very warm and humid day here in Darwin as you would expect at this time of year. Unfortunately Barbara didn’t feel up to making the trip into town but David, Rosemary and I ventured forth. We walked into town, strolled up and down the Smith Street Mall, bought a few essentials at a chemist and then took the free shuttle back to the ship. We’ve visited Darwin a couple of times previously on cruises, most recently in October 2014, so we’ve seen most of the things it’s possible to see on short visits.

Barbara was feeling a little better when we got back to the ship so all four of us went for a coffee and a bite to eat. We have no plans for the rest of the day so we’ll just be busy doing nothing. We set sail for Cairns at 4:00pm.

The cruise around the tip of Australia has been really interesting on previous cruises so we’re hoping for the same this time. We have a balcony cabin on the starboard side so we should be able to sit and relax and watch the scenery pass by … and hope that we’re not passing the tip of Cape York in the middle of the night! 🙂

Our Internet connectivity will be a bit hit and miss over the next few days. I’ll post if and when I can otherwise it will Cairns on Sunday March 8th.
