Member photo by Bennie62: Docked at beautiful Picton (Jan 2016)
Beautiful postcard; Lifou shoreline There is always the gendarmes present eh! View of the ship from My Maunganui Docked at beautiful Picton First look at the ship up close Docked in Hobart Millford Sound Dusky Sound Port of Yokohama Port of Yokohama Yamashita Park across the street from the Hotel New Grand where we stayed a Hotel New Grand. Great place, location, to stay at the night before the cru What gate? Chinatown Yokohama Yep, Chinatown NZ coastline entering port of Picton Sydney Opera House from ship The Sydney Opera House from our balcony before we set sail. Anchor painting The Japanese present everything in a beautiful manner. Here, we were welcomed to a hotel with the lovely origami cranes. This is a photo of the line to tender back to the ship. This is Nahn Trang where we arrived late and only had 3 hours to site see before returning to the ship. We could not go to any of the recommendations outside of a small area in town. Friends were berated for not tipping the pedicab driver $10 or more in spite of being told they had already paid and need not tip. The monkey show and elephant trek was a huge rip off. We were promised a 30 minute elephant trek to a waterfall and instead were put on elephants and walked in a circle around the field for 10 minutes. This was Ko Samai.  The beach looked fabulous but again, the ship was set to leave at 4:30 so we had no time on our own. Total time in port - 7 hours but the tender took 45 minutes each way and is included in your shore time.
