Talk about unwinding, sitting back and relaxing. Sipping a hot coffee and reading a good book while gazing out at the blue sea. I guess this was our day 4 on the ship was all about. After our continuous travel from Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, this is a perfect way to unwind and enjoy the different activities on the ship. Today we are cruising back to Singapore. The ship would be at the sea all day. This was our first time to spend a full day on the ship as we had our land tours in Malaysia and Thailand for the past two days. I was looking forward for this day because I wanna have the time to enjoy the ship’s amenities. It’s time to get comfy and cozy onboard!
The Solarium is obviously my favorite place in the ship. Not only because it has the Pizza and Burger bar where I could order unlimited pizzas, burgers, french fries, and hot dogs for free but also it has aircondition. I found it too hot at the ship’s outdoor pool area especially at noon time. Moreover, the Solarium has glass-walled windows and very comfy chairs where you could just sit back and relax. It’s a perfect place to read a good book or just gaze out at the beautiful sea and let your thoughts drift away. Emo mode. hehe.
Since this day was also our last full day on the ship, we took our time to have a picture with some of the ship’s crew.
I also made my stay in the ship more memorable by trying out wall climbing for the first time. I was afraid that I couldn’t make it to the top at first but I was relieved to find it easier than I thought. What’s the most difficult part for me was when I already reached the top of the wall and the instructor was telling me to take my hands off the wall. I was so afraid to let go of the wall because I was on the top and I could see the vast sea all around me. I was afraid that I’m gonna fall down straight into the sea. hehe.
Since this was our last night on the ship, the chef and the waiters sang a farewell song for the guests.
After eating dinner, we went to That’s Entertainment Theater to watch the Farewell Showtime for the guests.
So as every trip has a beginning, every trip also has an ending. Though I dread the ending of our cruise and I was reluctant to leave this beautiful ship, I knew I need to get back to reality. Still the cruise has to end tomorrow and we need to start packing our things for our flight back to Philippines. I’m just glad that as we leave the ship tomorrow, we’re gonna bring a lot of beautiful memories that my mom and I will surely treasure for a lifetime. Though I would sincerely tell you that 5 days aren’t enough for a cruise, you’d find yourself very reluctant to leave the ship on the last day. So I promised myself, next time I should save up more money and book for a 2-week cruise. hehe. But the cruise was really worth investing for. My mom and I found ourselves still daydreaming and reminiscing our cruise weeks after our cruise ended. Once again, I wanna thank God so much for this blessing. I’m very grateful that even though this trip just started from an impulsive decision, still everything went well. Indeed, nothing is impossible with Him.
Our ship arrived the next day in Singapore at 7am. We spent the day in Singapore then I had a midnight flight back to Manila via Air Asia. That’s the ending of our cruise and perhaps that’s also my last trip for this year. Looking forward for more travels next year!
