Do you need sea sick pills?

In case you are worried about sea sickness on board, the ride was pretty pleasant with minimum rocking on board. 



With the canopy down while sailing, it was a different experience on board. The feel of the cool breeze on your face and the sight of open seas was a delightful encounter.

The crew on board were pretty attentive . Decked in their white costume and red shorts, it will be easy to spot them.

For married couples, it would be a great way to spend quality time with your other half.A cruise does transport you away from the daily grind of work and children and be engrossed with each other's company under the moonlight. You might even consider booking the whole ship and plan a proposal with family and friends #ideaforproposal.


If you are in the mood, you can also choose to groove to the music after dinner.


Highly recommended for those seeking a romantic time away!
