We could not believe we were on board in less than 10 minutes
since we arrived in Circular Quay for check-in.
Check-in time was given for us is 2 pm
when we did on-line check-in a week ago.
There was'nt check-in desk, instead,
there were a lot of people with iPad
processing check-in around the terminal quite effectively.

We enjoyed Caribbean cruise on Allure of the seas last year very much,
we decided to go on Ovation of the seas
while she is based in Sydney for few months for the Summer season.
It is always so nice to be on a cruise ship from Sydney where we live.
Coming back to Sydney is an another big plus. ^^
