Nisha Van Wyk and her daughter Mikaila from Maryborough, Qld, Australia, are also on this ship with us - Damian & Debbie Foale, and Don & I.
When Debbie, Damian, Don and I left Maryborough for this voyage, we thought the city of 26,000 people was well represented having four residents among Australia’s 235 passengers.

We were wrong – there are six. Nisha Van Wyk and her daughter Mikaila are also here.

Nisha had seen our photo on the Fraser Coast Chronicle before leaving and once the cruise was underway made contact with us via the reception.

Nisha is a teacher at Riverside Christain College and Mikaila attends Maryborough West School.

Our new friends from Canberra, Ian and Jenny, have told us Australia’s capital city also has six citizens onboard, but since Canberra has a much larger population than Maryborough – we’ve claimed a higher percentage of representation, based on percentage.

We’ve also met fellow Aussies from Perth and Ipswich, so far.
