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. There were always other choices on the menu if you didn’t want the featured dish.
Most of the passengers that we met were from England, but also Scotland, Denmark, Australia, Canada and USA. The Scottish dudes whom were both in their mid eighties were entertainingly funny and full of energy. We also enjoyed spending time with two gents from England. They all could out dance or out party anyone else on the ship. A Saskatchewan Rider fan from Vancouver allowed me to take her picture.
My favorite place on the cruise was The Martini Bar, dubbed ‘The Ice Bar’! The countertop had a layer of frost that kept your drink cooler or cooled you down. The frost on the bar was much more useful there than the frost that we Canadians need to scrape off our windshields during the winter months. The bartenders were friendly and entertaining.
Twice a week there was a Silent Disco. We all wore headsets and had a choice of three different disco channels to dance to. We didn’t know what the other person was dancing to. It was so much fun. This is just one of the many great nights on the cruise.
