Sat 10/9/16 - We're off! We had an uneventful trip to Melbourne...
These are the lights of Devonport at 5.58am...
She's a huge ship - Built in Finland in 1997, first crossing in 09/2002.
194.33 metres long, has 59 twin bed porthole cabins, 72 four bed p/h cabins, 81 inside cabins, 2 wheelchair access cabins and 8 deluxe cabins. Licenced to carry 1400 pax and 500 standard vehicles. Crossing time is 9-11 hours and distance is 429kms.
We were snuggly warm (I bought a new feather/down doona) and had a good nights sleep, although my head got a bit cold. I might need to invest in a beanie!
Cheers - Joolz
