In no time, I have realized that the major thrust of a cruise is fancy food, so I decide to try out everything on the menu. The next morning, I wake up early and proceed to the fitness center, in order to make up for all the delicious bingeing I’m going to be doing throughout the day! There are lots of sophisticated machines, and I figure they even have daily morning classes (for Pilates, yoga, aerobics, body pumps, or zumba)!
After the morning workout, I predictably stuff myself with a heavy breakfast at the café, and then wash, change, and get ready for the day. There’s a range of activities to choose from and I’m almost confused at the wide scope: a cooking demonstration, an art history seminar, and a talk on skincare. Soon, I break for lunch and decide to try out an à la carte joint this time, Azura.
After lunch, I sit through an art auction, sipping a glass of wine. It is captivating to see several serious art buyers animatedly bidding for some of the most beautiful paintings. I feel sleepy after about an hour, but there’s still so much to do before the day is done! I shift to a hip-hop class at the Fyzz lounge, followed by a talk on how to detox.
The cruise is turning out to be one action-packed event, and I suddenly remember that I’m in the middle of an ocean somewhere far, far away from any land surface…
