We have two days at sea and guess what??? – yes it’s sunny hip hip hooray!! – good to just relax on deck after all the touring and walking we’ve done over the past few days…It’s time to top-up the tan.
Friday February 25th
7am Pyjama Sail-in Party on the front lower deck for World Cruise guests only – not the Seggers (that’s what we call the guests who are only doing segments of the cruise. Great fun in the early morning sunshine. Bucks fizz, tea, coffee and English muffins but we will of course go for our usual breakfast later at 8am.
Dentist for Vance again (boo hoo) but this time the dental practice is in the arrival terminal’s shopping mall on the 11th floor – a private practice (no NHS here!!) and really posh which was reflected in the cost!!
This afternoon we did the city highlights tour to Hong Kong Island – Victoria Peak, Aberdeen Bay and Stanley Market. We started with a coach ride to the funicular lower station and rode the train up to the Victoria Peak (1805 feet high) where we had stunning views of the Island and mainland Kowloon.
From there we went to Aberdeen Harbour and boarded a junk for a trip past the old houseboats and one of the floating restaurants that looked like an Imperial Palace. After that we travelled on to Deepwater Bay & Repulse Bay where the beaches are protected by shark proof nets!! We finished with a shopping trip to Stanley Market – mostly tat but Vance did manage to get a Greg Norman golf shirt for a few dollars….original of course!!.
