Camemberu is going on a 5D4N Royal Caribbean cruise!
preview tour of Legend of the Seas, Royal Caribbean chose 10 bloggers to go on a 5D4N cruise to the Isles of Southeast Asia for a blogging contest. Oh yes, I'm totally thrilled that I'm one of the lucky 10! And I am pleased to count among my cruisemates some old friends (Calvin, Darren, Eunice, Philip) and new friends (Cherie, Christine, Estelle, Mui Yee and Yee Leong). We'll be accompanied by OMY.SG folks and Royal Caribbean representatives and their ad agency.
From the preview tour, we've already seen that there's lots to do onboard the huge ship. Unlimited food and drink (even fine-dining is free!), a cinema, gym, sauna, spa, rock-climbing wall, golf course, swimming pool, suntanning deck, library, card/games room, ca$ino (!!), video arcade, lounges, etc etc... I didn't even get to see all of it.
But of course, the best thing sometimes is to do absolutely NOTHING. Yes, just simply chill and unwind, away from the stress of everyday life and work. In fact, this is the prefect chance to take a break from the Internet (not that it's not available) and phones.
Royal Caribbean even gave us two pieces of luggage - and solid ones too! We didn't know we would be getting these, but the surprise sure is a happy one.
They also gave us a shoe bag (given that we'd have to pack some nice shoes for a Captain's Night gala event), travel adaptors (although there are two types of sockets in the rooms), and luggage tags. We'll also have an hour's worth of Internet access, should we want to make tweets or online updates live on the trip.
Here are Nadine and Jolie hoping to go on the cruise as well. See Jolie going, "Pleeease?"
No, you are not going, no matter what cute smiles you try! Muahahaha! This trip is mine, all mine!
Actually, I'll miss these two, of course. The cruise ship is great place for families, so maybe next time I'll bring them. I'm grateful that hubby insisted I come for this trip. He's taking leave to take care of the household. I'm also missing out on some dinners, especially the Makansutra Christmas dinner, but oh well, this is my very first cruise after all!
I am going to pack after this post, but my most critical supply is all ready. SUNBLOCK GALORE! Because I don't tan, I simply burn! LOL!
We'll be stopping in Kuala Lumpur and Phuket along the way, and each blogger is given a shore excursion to experience as well. All of us will have our posts on our blogs as well as collectively on a special omy.sg minisite (there'll be a voting contest at the end, and prizes for you guys!).
I wonder what shenanigans the 10 of us will be up to. While we may not be as crazy as the Pirates of the Caribbean, but I'm sure there'll be adventures and laughs galore. I can't wait.
And yes, bikini girl Estelle is coming along!
