Judy's Bucket List of SE Asia, Australia and New Zealand

a trip by Judy Stewart
From: January 11th 2017
Until: February 18th 2017

Glenn and I will be celebrating my 60th Birthday by going on a NCL Cruise. We'll start off in Hong Kong, sailing through Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia (Bali), Australia (including Tazmania Island) and ending up in New Zealand.

I have always wanted to tour New Zealand - and now celebrating my 60th birthday year, we'll get to do that.

We will celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary (January 19) in NHA Thang, Vietnam.

Currently the NCL Star has had some azipod problems. Something about the electrical current in propelling the ship. They have ordered a part for the repair and it seems that the repair will take place in a two day port stop in Singapore January 22, 23. Because of the engine problem, NCL deleted our stop in Bangkok and Saigon, Vietnam to allow extra time in Singapore. Although we are disappointed in this change of itinerary, we will still have a relaxing time.
