Being into wine, we had really looked forward to Adelaide. The ship was greeted with live folk music (the Gum Tree-O Band, whose CD we bought) and dancing information guides... There was a lot of trouble getting the gangway installed from the dock, but it was entertaining to watch from our veranda. The ship-arranged tour was very disappointing. Beyond transit time, we had perhaps 35 minutes for a rushed tasting and tour at the first huge winery, Richmond Grove, and about an hour at another huge related winery -- Jacob's Creek (whose wine is available in the US). Jacob's Creek had an interesting vineyard display of most grape varietals, which we could taste; something we hadn't seen side-by-side before. More time at the wineries would have made for a nicer experience, even if we weren't particularly impressed with the wines. (Note: ship friends who arranged private tours were very happy with their experiences at other wineries.) Not sure why we had a ridiculously long queue to reboard the ship, but wait and wait we did.
