Today was my first opportunity to get back to the harbour for the year, and what better way than with the largest cruise ship to call Sydney home. Here is Ovation of the Seas departing for a New Zealand itinerary; first stop Port Chalmers, but not before transiting the Sounds in Fiordland.
Ovation of the Seas returned to her Australian Home Port of Sydney this morning, without all of the fanfare that greeted her last year on her maiden port call. The other major difference was the weather – not the torrential rain from last year, but pleasingly clear skies.
Rather than spending more time at Sydney Harbour, this morning was spent at the airport. Nothing too spectacular – just nice for a change from cruise ships & ferries.
