On Board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas: Day 4 & 5 of 5

By alvinology, December 5, 2011 10:49 am

On the fourth day, we spent a full day on board the ship, going through the various activities. It was also to be our last night on board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas (LOTS). Hence there was much reminiscing among the bloggers on the good times over the past few days.

We started the day early, trailing Christine and Estelle as they went for spa treatment sessions. Christine tried a treatment with heated pebbles while Estelle tried one with a bamboo roller.The working crew took a few photographs and some short video clips of the two ladies before heading off for breakfast at Romeo & Juliet, leaving the two ladies to enjoy their respective spa session.

Remember all the cute animal towels we have been spotting in our rooms every night? Well, there’s actually a towel folding tutorial on board the ship. We learned to fold a few towel animals from the short session. This will definitely come in handy for parents to impress young kids.

The towel folding tutorial was followed by a cake-making class. Cherie, ever the enthusiastic cook volunteered to go on stage to join the chefs in their cake-making demonstration. The completed cakes were cut into slices to share among the audience.

Right after cake-making, we were brought on a tour of the Royal Caribbean’s sprawling kitchen. The kitchen is so big it was divided into two floors. Cakes, bread and other pastries are all freshly baked daily in this kitchen. There is strict quality control for every single dish before they are served to the ship’s guests.

A lot of work goes into running a 24 hours round-the-clock kitchen operation. The chefs need to anticipate when are the peak periods and popular orders to ensure the kitchen is well stocked and orders are always available. Wastage is to be kept at a minimum.

After lunch, it was time for some retail therapy. The retail manager came to greet us, showing us around the various shops and products available on board the ship.There’s a decent mix of luxury brands, jewelery and regular souvenir items like Royal Caribbean tee-shirts and caps. Items are all duty-free since we are on the open sea.

The bloggers then went on their own free time to explore around while the working crew lazed around through a few rounds of bingo game. It wasn’t our lucky draw – none of us won anything, but it was good fun.

Some of the bloggers stayed around to chat at the open deck of the ship till the wee hours of the night, sharing ghost stories and all. After spending five days on the same ship, I became close friends with many of the bloggers, remaining in close contact even till today.

I retired back to my cabin for a few hours of sleep before waking up early to pack and prepare for landing.

The next morning, together with my other two omy.sg colleagues, we dragged our luggage to Romeo & Juliet for breakfast before getting off the ship. We bumped into the rest of the working crew there as well as a few of the bloggers.

After the cave, it was back on the water again, traveling by small boats to the Phi Phi Islands.

Estelle and Christine gamely changed to their bikinis for a dip in the sea together with the very happy Philip at James Bond Island. Their sacrifice was for us to shoot a snazzy Bond girls spoof starring the three bloggers for omy.sg’s Royal Caribbean site.

The Phi Phi Islands was a beautiful place to hang around. It’s a pity we did not have much time there as we still need to make the journey back on board LOTS.

On Board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas – Day 2 of 5

By alvinology, January 18, 2011 1:30 am

On the second day, Legend of the Seas (LOTS) docked at Port Klang in Malaysia at 7.30am. The bloggers went for their respective half-day tour in Kuala Lumpur. This gave the working crew some time to shoot some of the ships’ facilities and cutaway shots while they were away.

After a quick breakfast at Windjammer, we attended some of the dance classes to get some shots.

We were done by around noon. Since it was still early, the omy.sg team, together with Stanley decided to disembark from the ship and do a bit of shopping nearby.

The four of us shared a cab to a Jusco mall. It took ten minutes to get to our destination. The cab fare was steep – RM$100 one-way. Port Klang Cruise Centre where the ship had docked is relatively deserted and far from any food or shopping. The cab drivers know this and probably colluded on a fixed rate. The return fare costs the same. If you are going anywhere further into KL, it might be more worthwhile to book one of Royal Caribbean’s day tour from the ship as the charges may work out around the same (or possibly cheaper) compared to what the cab drivers will be charging you.

At the mall, the four of us parted way to do our shopping. I visited a few fashion boutiques, book shops and the supermarket. I did not buy anything except for some tidbits.

For lunch, I wanted to eat at Kim Gary restaurant initially, but the queue was too long.

In the end, I ate at Resotran Black Canyon as I had a sudden craving for coffee. I ordered one of their signature coffee and a green curry spaghetti. The coffee was good, but the spaghetti was horrible. On hindsight, I should have known better than to order such a weird east-west combination. The spaghetti tasted cold, dry with a strong alkaline note. The green curry did not have aroma in it except for spiciness.

After dinner, we caught a cabaret performance at the entertainment hall where the performers were doing a medley of classic Hollywood movie theme songs.

After the show, we got to met the performing cast and took some photos with them.

We then headed up to the top deck where there was a night disco going on. When we got there, there were some hot, muscular Royal Caribbean dancers dressed up as cowboys and construction workers to roused up the crowd.

Some of the bloggers stayed to party through the night. I left once the shoots were done to get some sleep.

That rounded up the second night.

On Board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas – Day 1 of 5

By alvinology, December 27, 2010 12:35 pm

My Royal Caribbean Adventure

Together with Royal Caribbean, omy.sg sent an entourage of ten bloggers onboard Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas (LOTS) for a 5D4N, Isles of Southeast Asia tour in early December, with stopovers in Port Klang, Malaysia and Phuket, Thailand.

The ten bloggers are Darren, Catherine, Cherie, Muiee, Yee Leong, CalvinTimo, Eunice, Keropokman, Chrispytine and Estelle.

I was one of the working crew who followed along, together with Phyllis, Nicole and James from Royal Caribbean; Stanley from DraftFCB; and my colleagues, Weiding and Ming Choy from omy.sg.

The ten bloggers will be writing about their experience with LOTS on a shared blog – http://blog.omy.sg/royal-caribbean. Readers are encourage to vote and support your favourite blogger to help him/her win a 7D5N Mediterranean fly-cruise with Royal Caribbean. Voters also stand to win prizes worth over $3700 in value.

Do check out the shared blog, there’s lots of exciting photos and videos there. If you are looking to planning a cruise vacation, the shared blog is a great information source with valuable travel tips and to-do lists.

On the first day, we boarded LOTS at around 11am, after checking in our luggage and filling up all the necessary travel documents. Most of the bloggers had done their online check-in a few days earlier and were able to breeze through the check point. This can be done on the official Royal Caribbean website and saves you much time and hassle checking in.

Although our room will only be ready after 2pm, we were free to wander around the ship and make use of its wide array of facilities, including the dining areas.

Being typical Singaporeans, we all headed to the Windjammer restaurant for a heavy International buffet brunch first. Spoilt for choice by the wide cuisine selection, I had quite a few servings while chatting with the bloggers and getting the other logistics arrangement settled with the working crew.

When I checked into our triple-sharing room with my other two omy.sg colleagues at 2pm, we were pretty happy with the spacious room area. Initially when we first stepped in, there was a twin-sharing queen bed and the third bed was not lowered from the ceiling yet. We made a call to housekeeping and by the time we came back to our room later part in the evening, three single beds magically appeared.

The room was first like this when we stepped in

The rest of the day was mostly spent planning the itineraries and shooting schedules for the bloggers.

There was a short emergency drill at 4pm which everyone on the ship has to attend. There are over 2000 passengers on board LOTS and over 600 Royal Caribbean staff. The emergency drill is about the only time when you can see everyone gathered in the same location.

For dinner, we dined at the exquisite Romeo & Juliet (R&J) restaurant which will be the regular dinner venue for all of us for the next three nights.

Dinner time!

Dinner time!

There’s a head waiter and assistant waiter assigned to each table at R&J. Service standard was meticulous and there’s always a new menu everyday with a good variety of different starters, main courses and deserts.

I love beef and had steak for most of the nights. An observation I made at R&J was that female diners really love to eat deserts and would usually order many portions to share together. The female bloggers in our group were no exception.

Half Day Ship Tour on Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas

By alvinology, December 3, 2010 2:31 pm
Happy bloggers on board Royal Caribbean's Legend of the Seas

Happy bloggers on board Royal Caribbean's Legend of the Seas

Last Monday, I accompanied a group of 50 bloggers on board Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas for a half day ship tour.

The tour was part of a joint campaign between Royal Caribbean and omy.sg to let bloggers experience the Royal Caribbean cruise experience and share it with their readers. The half day tour was just a preview. Following which ten bloggers were selected to experience a 5D4N Isles of Southeast Asia Cruise. Eventually, one lucky blogger will then be selected for a 7D5N Western Mediterranean Fly-Cruise. Sounds exciting isn’t it?

You can read more about the half day tour as well as check out the photo gallery and videos via the official campaign website. You can also read about the bloggers’ cruise experience via a shared blog on omy.sg which will be updated regularly.

The ten selected bloggers (you know who you are) will be setting sail next Monday together with the omy.sg crew. Stay tuned to the campaign site and shared blog for updates of their adventure, as well as the twitter hash tag, #royalcaribbean.

Below are some photos I took on the half-day tour:
