how a hotel helped me choose a cruise
15 May 2014
You may be puzzled by the title of this little story....
Let me explain.
One of the great joys of travel is you never quite know what it will uncover.
I am currently surprised by my desire to go on a cruise but that is where I find myself following an amazing family mini break at the Shangri la in Sydney in February.
The first thing to say about this is the view from our suite or the club lounge or the bar is amazing with Sydney harbour being one of the worlds great vistas.
The Shangri la sits slightly up a hill affording amazing views of Sydney harbour Bridge and the famous opera house.
I expected these to be beautiful ....and they so are..
But the memory that lasts with me as so often happens is one that was unexpected.
You see just near the bridge lies Circular Quay home to Sydney's main
passenger cruise terminal.
We were just blown away by the beauty and in some cases size of these
They certainly got me thinking about going on an ocean cruise.
Better just chose one where there is a Shangri la hotel at the other
