Australia Day

posted by: Marion Rogers from Abingdon Oxfordshire United Kingdom

On 26 January 2014 my husband and I departed Sydney on board Seabourn Odyssey bound for New Zealand.  It was a beautiful sunny day and we left White Bay Terminal at 4.00 pm.  It was the most joyful moment as we passed the Sydney Opera House.  There were still many people, and boats in the harbour, celebrating Australia Day.  The atmosphere on the Odyssey was wonderful.  Everyone was on deck taking in the sights, sipping champagne or cocktails, listening to the band playing "Waltzing Matilda" and sampling Lamingtons.  The crew members were dressed in big hats with corks dangling!  Everyone was having fun.  A truly magical moment!
