I’m not so much into the theme park scene, but it’s one of Asia’s top recreational facilities and tourist magnet, Sentosa Island in Singapore offers a thrilling ride and fun for children and adults alike, even if for just an afternoon.

Think of cruising as something out of the ordinary. It’s not just another passenger ship going to a destination. It is a full service, mall of the seas, so to speak, considering the many amenities and things to do and enjoy while taking it slow to your destination.

There’s a whole lot to cruising as a different travel option than I thought it would be. Friends told me that they don’t usually do this as it is only for the oldies. But after experiencing one, upon the invitation of the Philippines’s fastest growing budget airline, AirPhil Express and cruise leader Star Cruises, I say, I changed my mind.
