How’s your week going so far, Lifestylers, I hope you’re busy in a good way, not trying to be perfect (you did get the newsletter on Friday, didn’t you?), and enjoying being You, the very unique You that you are.
We’re already looking forward to the weekend and wondering what to plan and do. Have you got plans already?
Who thinks it’s important to make sure that we have things to look forward to, all the time – even small things, like arranging to meet a friend for coffee?
Keeping occupied I believe is imperative as we get older when the tendency to dwell, or to look back on our lives and wallow in nostalgia is really strong sometimes – don’t get me started on the photo albums! How many times have I been sucked into hours of flipping photos – wayyyy too many 🙂
For the last few days we’ve been everso busy. We had a staycation at a lovely apartment hotel in Perth (above). You can read about Citadines St Georges Terrace Here and here’s my review, Contemporary Apartment Hotel in Perth, and did all sorts of things in the city, and then I spent time with my daughter too.
On Monday I was really lucky to be invited back onto Sea Princess while she was docked in Fremantle for the day, and because lots of people ask me questions like, ‘What’s it really like onboard?’ and ‘What are the staterooms like?’ I thought today I’d share some photos with you.
Just a visitor today
It felt really weird walking around the ship as a visitor and yet knowing it wasn’t ‘home’ anymore. My thoughts did turn a bit nostalgic as I remembered back to all the wonderful things that had happened during our 104 night adventure.
One of my lovely blogging friends, Amanda Kendle (Not a Ballerina) was invited too, so too my daughter and friend. We had such fun and a “whole lorra larfs” (as Cilla Black used to say) and Angus the Customer Services Director made us all very welcome and gave us a personalised tour of the ship, and took us around some of the staterooms and suites too.
And then there were four. All aboard Sea Princess in Fremantle.
Cakes glorious cakes – too many to choose from in Horizon Court buffet.
On a tour of the ship overlooking the main pool area with the big screen – hello Movies Under the Stars.
An elegant lunch in the Traviata Dining Room
I did mention chocolate dessert, didn’t I?
My starter was delish: salmon and shrimps and lobster.
So many little sweets and treats to choose from.
The Sanctuary was a great spot to while away a little time while our lunch was settling.
Then a bit of exercise!
Sadly no time to jump in the pool for a dip.
The lavish Princess Theatre where we watched many a fantastic stage production during our time on the world cruise.
Quick – just time for a short game of table football in Legends Sports Bar.
Browsing through books in the library.
The young ones made the most of the spring sunshine to lap up a few rays by the pool before lunch.
Showing Amanda around the ship – here in the glamorous Atrium with its glass lifts and opulent staircase.
Next time, I’d like a suite please! They are really spacious!
With Angus, Customer Services Director. You can read more about Angus’s fascinating life at sea here, Life on the Ocean Waves.
Who wouldn’t love a suite at sea?
That’s all for now folks.
But I would love to know what plans you have for the weekend? And who’s thinking of Booking a Cruise? I’d love to know where you’re thinking of going.
