My Royal Caribbean Cruise Adventure - Behind the Scenes

Remember my previous entries on My Royal Caribbean Cruise Adventure Contest by Omy and sponsored by Royal Caribbean International?


My royal caribbean cruise adventure - travel like royalty

Selected to tour Legend of the Seas

My royal caribbean cruise adventure countdown


Well... Wifey and I went for the half-day tour of Legend of the Seas on Monday...


For the actual review...
http://ginsengtonic.blogspot.com/2010/11/legend-of-seas-review-my-royal.html


We took soooooo many photos.. 
And met other like-minded and nice bloggers... 
I decided to do more than one entry and give a little "behind the scenes" take.. 
Before I start writing about the cruise ship and hopefully be selected for the Legend of the Seas 5D4N Isle of Southeast Asia Cruise (Port calls at Port Klang and Phuket) with Wifey!




Us making our way to the event...




Legend of the Seas from Singapore Cruise Centre

Singapore Cruise Centre which was at Harbour Front...
There were about 40 bloggers who were selected for this contest and we were broken into 4 groups to be lead by different Royal Caribbean staff...


Wifey and I grabbing a quick bite while waiting board

Royal Caribbean Staff getting Ready


Janet from Omy
That's Janet from Omy... Whom I am sure felt like a school teacher that day as she tried to organize us... get us to gather... take attendance... and give out instructions!... Well.. at least she looked like she was having fun =)



Alvin from Omy
That's Alvin from Omy... Whatever he said did not register much with my mind still on snooze... 
BUT... THIS I REMEMBER...
Instead of selecting 4 bloggers... they will now select 10 bloggers for the Legend of the Seas 5D4N Isle of Southeast Asia Cruise (Port calls at Port Klang and Phuket)!
Even if not selected... Bloggers will be given some vouchers for the cruises...
How cool is that?!..
They more than doubled the prizes!!!

Wifey seems all geared up to win!



Royal Caribbean Guide

That's our guide.. (Oooops... I forgot her name)...
She did a great job answering our questions over lunch and gave us some highlights of Royal Caribbean's other cruise ships and some of the destinations they travel to...

Here are some pictures of our group of bloggers (not all though)....

Good luck man! Hope both u n ur wife can win n have a great holiday onboard the cruise!

Benjamin Ang said...

@Eunice: Thanks for dropping by... Coz Keropok Man told us he doesn't have any pic of himself on his blog and facebook... so just did some editing for fun...

Check out my actual review entry on it (if you haven't).. and my Wifey's entry on it damn creative lah (and I'm not saying that coz she's my wife!)...


@Peppermin: I did the same thing and "stole" a pic from Eunice also for memory's sake.. the group pic with her inside...


Good luck to everybody involved.. who knows.. They may double it to 20?! haha..
Never hurts to be positive =)

I am so amazed in all the pictures that you posted in this blog post. I can see how fun your adventure is. How I wish I can also experience it.

Michelle Anne Custodio said...

It's always fun to be with different people in an adventure like that. Try Corryvreckan cruising. You will surely enjoy.
