The ship was parked in Darling Harbor right next to the Opera House and I had a stunning view from my balcony.
I hooked up with my friend Carolyn and we had a Bon Voyage drink on the balcony.
That was the good news..... Almost immediately upon departure I felt sick and stayed sick for the next 7 days. Apparently picked up an upper respiratory infection from the previous ship where everyone was sneezing and coughing. I though I had bobbed and weaved and washed enough but it still hit me hard.
So Carolyn saw Brisbane and I saw my room.
Carolyn saw the Great Barrier Reef, I saw my room.
I did take these pictures from the balcony. The Great Barrier Reef is down there......
And this is a shot of the Whitsunday Islands we passed.....
Pretty much that was my week.
