3rd Unlock the Past Cruise 10 February 2013

Well woke up excited as today is boarding day for the cruise.  Left Hornsby and was driven by a kindly chauffeur to the cruise terminal where we unloaded the luggage (lots of luggage as also stuff for the conference). Will share that photo at a later stage as download lead is in my luggage which has not been delivered as yet.

Then the very short walk to the cruise terminal where you could see the ship from quite a way away as it is a large ship.

Here it is below against the Sydney icon: the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

 The other Sydney icon: the Sydney Opera House.

We managed to get early check-on and got on-board to check out the most important part of the ship.
No, not my room but the Conference Centre which will be our hub of activity for the next nine days.

You will hear a lot more about this in the coming days. Registration is later this afternoon as is our lifeboat drill.then dinner and then our 'Meet and Greet' where the Genies will mingle.

Hopefully we will also get a Geneabloggers photo then as we have at least nine Geneabloggers as part of conference. We will also be getting a Genealogists for Families photo as there a number of us aboard.

The talks start in the Conference Centre tomorrow.
