  1. Pre Cruise Melbourne, or during the Cruise stop in Melbourne:

    One of our Aussie friends had dinner on the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, and they loved it…

    3 ancient tram carriages hosting each 36 people, getting 3 or 4 courses luncheon or dinner served during city sight seeing drive.
    Look for TripAdvisor references before you decide, but if you want to make online reservations, be quick.
    During the cruise only possible for luncheon session from 1.00 pm till 3.00 pm due to boarding the Dawn Princess in time again…

    • Oh and about the Colonial Tramcar, hubby and I have been on it twice, it’s well worth the money, the experience you will remember for a very long time. The food is lovely, the wines are very nice, service fantastic, it’s well worth going but you have too book well in advance, they get booked very quickly. http://www.tramrestaurant.com.au

      The trams are a renovated W class, I am not quite sure when they were taken from general use in Melbourne but I do remember using these trams very regularly as a child. There is a City Circle tram that circles the city of Melbourne, it is free to use and it goes to many of Melbournes famous places. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_Circle_Tram

  2. Melbourne is my home town, if there is enough interest hubby and myself can host a tour. (8th April)
    Thoughts?

    • Dee, we would love to, but meanwhile, I had to cancel even our reservation for the Tramcar restaurant, because an Aunt of Brigitte lives nearby Melbourne and they decided that her son will pick us up from the ship by car and drive us to their home to celebrate Easter with them. ;-(
      I hope I wil still see something of Melbourne, my eldest son was once here and he loves this city even more than Adelaide!
