Okanagan Lake, Kelowna, BC September 2017, I spent an enjoyable day with friends on their pontoon boat, cruising the beautiful Okanagan Lake which is 84 miles long.   We started out with a fantastic lunch at The Cactus Club on the shoreline of the Okanagan Lake. The service and food are always excellent there.  I have had the fish tacos several times because they are one of the most tasty I have ever had.

This time a couple of us enjoyed the Salt&Pepper Wings and the fish looked delicious.  We all enjoyed our choices off the menu.

Just a short walk through the Marina and we arrived at Gary and Cheryle’s pontoon boat. Len and Donna and I were fortunate to have been invited for this wonderful day on the lake.  One side of the lake is quite barren...

The Celebrity Constellation Cruise Ship took us from Singapore to Brunei, Ho Chi Minh, South Vietnam, Bangkok and Ko Samui, Thailand and back to Sigapore.  Our cruise ship had  three pools and four jet tubs.  One of the pools and jet tubs were indoors, to get away from the hot sun or rainy weather.  I enjoyed swimming while the ship was sailing because it was more challenging to swim in the current of the salt water pool.  Our life guard consisted of a huge green ape, holding a big fish, which towered over us.

There was always music playing while swimming or hanging around on the deck.  If there wasn’t a live band, recorded music would be playing.  The live entertainment was always good and some of us would get up and dance.

We pulled out of the Singapore port at 8pm to begin our two week adventure.  We were pleasantly surprised at how big our room was and that there was plenty of storage.

The food on the cruise was excellent and I don’t think there was ever a time that you couldn’t eat something.  We were assigned a table for the 8pm seating.  We could either choose the buffet, which was excellent or dine with our assigned guests.  The formal restaurant was flexible if you wished to sit at another table. The service was top notch and the food presentation and taste were excellent.  Lobster night in the dining room was my favourite...

After the 14 day Celebrity Cruise I stayed one more night in Singapore at the Mercure Singapore Bugis.  When I booked through Expedia I did not realize there were two Mercure Hotels in Singapore until I arrived at the other Mercure Roxy where we had stayed before the cruise.  Mercure Bugis is further away from the airport, but I had prepaid $190 for my room.  It is a very modern flair.  My room was very small, containing two twin beds.  If there would have been two of us we would have had to put our luggage out in the hallway.  Yes, it was that small and did not even have a real closet.  But it was pretty and the view and infinity pool was fabulous!  The little Asian boy was so interested in me, that it made me laugh. a very modern flair...

Singapore and Sentosa Island

Accomodations, Cruises, Destinations, Dining

Sentosa Island is an extension of beautiful Singapore. My favorite tour was the sky tram over to Sentosa Island.  However I would have loved to explore even more but ou time ran out.  We also experienced quite a few rain showers during our time there.  The giant Merlion stands tall as it protects the island of Sentosa.  I found the Merlion a little intimidating at first.  We explored this special island on our own while we waited for the light show to start.  There were many unique vendor shops, etc to explore.  The view of the sunset from the white sand beach was intriguing.
