Anyone been cruising?

Post by Matney » Mon, 27 Mar 2006 5:57 am

No, I'm not talking about the cruising in your car down the bouvlevard...Has anyone been on a cruisie out of Singapore? School holidays coming up and we were thinking of taking a cruise instead of flying(husband does that all the time), try something different. Any suggestions?

We were going to try to visit the out laws, but that was too difficult and expense.

Yeah. It was good but wouldn't do it again.

Many moons ago, the year after I finished school I went on a cruise.
Not too many sober moments on that jaunt. Got laid 4 out of 9 nights. Different bird each time!!

Ah, those were the days. Don't imagine your wife would be happy with you playing that scenario?
They are big boats though, if you play it smart, 'reckin you could get away with it. Got to be prepared to sacrifice home ground advantage though I suppose.

Good luck brother.

Big Guns,
Read the questions and ALL information carefully. I said that my husband flies all the time, hence that must mean I am the wife...
I'm glad you had fun on your cruise! :wink:

Never mind Matney, this so called big gun is probably the biggest fool on the forum these days.... :?

I remember Wham did a cruise if I am not mistaken, maybe he can give some more info.

Don't sell yourself short Eric.

What I read from your contributions on the forum is the biggest load of verbal diarrhea one could possibly read.
And the the amount of postings you make has Big guns thinking that nobody on the island can give you the time of day & that's why you are sitting at home playing on the internet all weekend long.
Eric no friends from Netherlands.

Tuck those stick mags back under your bed, and find yourself some real mates.

Matney. I apologies for my discrepancy. I think that after a couple days you will find the cruise a little boring unless you are happy to sleep in, sun bake and eat buffets for the duration of your vacation.

Hello fellow friends! :wave:
We have just returned from a 6 days, 5 nights cruise, stopping at Pattaya and Koh Samui. We loved it! :) Yes, you can eat too much and drink too much, but you can also sleep, rest, relax and revive. I actually started to read a book again for pleasure! On the stops you had the option of getting off and going on a tour or stay on the ship.
And yes, we took the teenagers with us and they even admitted they had fun :shock:

Congratulations Matney. It's so rare when that happens isn't it. The Teens I mean. :wink:

I think it all depends on what you are expecting. We just wanted to be able to spend some time together and relax. This we were able to do. We were quite happy to sit, chat, people watch (plenty of that!), sunbathe, eat, sleep, and enjoy the activities on offer. We did the tours when we stopped, and enjoyed quite a few of the various things planned for those on board. We did drink, which is extra, but you could take your own. We aren't gamblers, but we did participate in the bingo games for the benefit of my daughter.

The teens did their own thing, but did show up at meal times to eat together. They probably spent more than they should have at the arcade, but it was a holiday! They went to movies as well as the planned activities geared for their age group. Both came back with sunburns (their own faults because we were busy getting massages!). My son, who hated going because he was missing day two of the Rugby Sevens, didn't want to leave because of the friends he had met. By the time we gathered at our condo's pool on Saturday, I think everyone there had heard from our teens what a wonderful time they had had.
