4 night Libra cruise to Phuket

We went on a 4 night cruise to Phuket on board SuperStar Libra recently. It was a last min booking cos I was informed rather late of a travel voucher from my sis which could be used to offset about 1/3 of the cruise payment. We managed to secure a quad cabin with port hole finally !!

This is the first time I board Libra. I've been on SuperStar Virgo & Aquarius!!

Off we go ... ... ...

The boys were amazed by the mega ship !! Their virgin ride ... .....


There are a total of 9 decks. Our cabin is on deck 2. Really very cramp...this was how we let the 2 boys to sleep. We brought down one of the mattress on the upper bed & placed it on the floor. They were so interested on the ladder & kept climbing up & down :(


The yummilicious spread of food from Four Season (left : Western) & Ocean Palace (right : Chinese cuisine) These were only food we had for 2 meals. You can imagine how well fed we were on board throughout the whole trip :):):)


Entertainment from the cruise crew on one of the night at Star Lounge !!
Zac volunteered to participate in one of the game show called the Horse Ride. He is "horse" number 3. I bet on horse 1, 3 & 6.... not my lucky numbers though. Horse number 4 won !! :):)


How can the boys missed playing in the pool there? The water is so ...... saltish ;p


We embark at Phuket (Patong Beach) on the 3rd day & spend about 8 hrs on the island.
The main attraction is the elephant ride at Island Safari. The 4 of us sat on the elephant. You can imagine how strong the mammal is to carry 3 adults (not forgeting the trainer too) & 2 child up & down the challenging terrains *sweat*
The boys also had a jolly good time watching the funny monkey doing its tricks. We also took photos with the cheeky little fellow that lifted its tiny hands for the photo shot. So smart !! :):)


We also went to Phuket's most famous Buddhist temple, Wat Chalong. The boys were amazed by the magnificient sculptures :)


These were the things we brought home. Mostly photos..... haha... they are really precious & expensive photos I should say !! :):)


This marks the last post from me for the year 2008.
May I wish everyone a fruitful year ahead :):)

Farah Deen said...

oh my god! how absolutely exciting that was. I've always wanted to go on cruise somewhere, and we were even planning to go on a star cruise somewhere nice, but still the time has not come yet. I bet the cruise to Phuket is fantastic,I could see it's really beautiful on the cruise, and Phuket is always a fantastic place for the family. We've been there too but by air, I know it is much better to travel by sea.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year too Janice.. :)

J@n!ce said...

Juliana : You participate in the contest again. Ok, will be over to take a look :):)

J@n!ce said...

Farah : This is the 2nd time I been to Phuket. The first time was via air. Its really amazing how a mega ship could float on the water like that. So impressive. I hope you get to board on one real soon with the kiddos :):)
