Life on board
Imagine waking up to the sweet warble of chirping. The early rays of the sun start to kiss the curtains and floor of your beautiful cabin. The smell of coffee – strong but not pungent – gently glides to your cabin.
You slip into the Jacuzzi – warm and inviting – and the bubbles start to tenderly massage you. You put on your clothes and walk to the dining room. All along you are greeted by the cherubic smiles of the staff. You think to yourself, “Soon, they will not be staff to me but friends.”
You decide to have breakfast with the rest of the guests. A big spread lays before you. Western cuisine. Asian food. Fusion delights.
You get ready for the adventurous day ahead of you. Ah, kayaking. You have thought about kayaking since the day you left your home country. And now, you will soon experience the dash of adventure and the hint of danger that goes with it.
And you look forward to returning to Violet. To another sumptuous dinner. To a dip in your Jacuzzi and to a well-deserved massage.
As you lay your head on the soft pillow, your thoughts wander to the day after. And you wish this experience never ends.
