Quantum of the Seas...a sneak peek inside cruising's new wonder ship!

Quantum of the Seas is the smartest cruise ship to ever set sail and she offers more in the way of innovation than any cruise ship before her. She is the wunderkind of world cruising right now.

Rhapsody of the Seas cruise, November 2013 (Pt I)

I'd heard great things about Rhapsody of the Seas from fellow cruisers who had spent time on her, so I had been looking forward to this cruise. And I wasn't let down - Rhapsody is a splendid ship.

Voyager of the Seas cruise (Pt I), Oct 22 - Nov 5, 2012

This cruise on Voyager of the Seas was booked 198 days out and waiting for the boarding date was, at times, tortuous - like being a kid again, waiting for 'next Christmas' to arrive!

Fremantle, Western Australia (not a port of call but the ship disembarked there)

Pacific Dawn cruise, Feb 2012

Food, glorious food...cruising and your waistline!

My flight in an Australian Army Black Hawk helicopter.

In my real-world life away from this blog I work as the photo editor with ABC News Online in Brisbane, Australia. It's primarily a desk job but every once in a while I get out and about. I don't always share my ABC escapades on the blog but I thought I would with this one.

Gallery of photos from south-west Queesland

A flock of galahs sit on powerlines at dusk in the town of St George.

Here's a small gallery of photos I took while on assignment near Cunnamulla in south-west Queensland in May, 2013. These were taken as part of my 'real' job as photo editor with ABC News Online.
