Word on the street - from the Golden Princess passengers

“What do you enjoy most about being on a cruise boat?”

“What do you enjoy most about being on a cruise boat?”

Tiee and Cindy Woo (Perth WA): “Every day we visit a different city. Also, we don’t have to drive home from a ships’ bar or the casino.”
Sylvia Wickson (Melbourne): “I really like the staff. They are very polite, courteous and always smiling, even when they might be having a bad day.”
Robert Bakker (Geelong, Victoria): “No one can ask you to do this, or do that because you’re so far from home, and the food’s not bad either.”
Nigel and Janice Burgess: “No beds to make, no bathrooms to clean. There’s always someone to talk to and it keeps the wife happy.”
Kay and Tony Rafferty (Melbourne): “Relaxing and making new friends, and the gorgeous food.”
George and Isabel McGillivray (Perth, WA): “Doing nothing! You can do what you like, when you like. Then there are the outings ashore at nice places like Gisborne.”
George and Heather Smith (Melbourne): “Not having to do any housework, cooking, shopping. Not having to lift a finger.”
Geoff Keets (left) from Yarra Glen, Victoria, and Ross Troon (Melbourne): “Being with our wives and the opportunity to get off in lovely places like Gisborne.”
Bruce and Kay Eacott (Gippsland, Victoria): “The food, entertainment and being looked after.”
John and Jenny Crawford (Cobram, Victoria): “We get to see places we wouldn’t otherwise visit and you are forced to relax. You haven’t got a choice.”

The hordes of passengers who came ashore from the Golden Princess seemed to have a great time. So the Gisborne Herald asked them: "What do you enjoy most about being on a cruise boat?”
