There’s no Wordless Wednesday today. Just lots of words and pictures.
We met the big, the high and mighty ship again, just like last year. This time, my friend Rose and her hubby came with us. It is their first time on the big ship and even it’s too hot and humid outside, they are smiling.
That’s me and my mom, then Ken and Rose. The short fellow is, well, who else but Pristine, who doesn’t want to be beaten in the widest-smile competition.
Crystal Symphony is so huge, all of it didn’t fit in this photo:
We went to see my friend, Stacey, again. I can’t believe it’s been a year since we last saw each other.
What a difference one year makes. Stacey says Pristine has gotten big. I’d say yes! See that photo? They’re almost the same height! 😉
She gave us a tour of the ship, (the photo is blurred but know that it isn’t my fault..see, I am in the photo so I couldn’t have taken it)
at the pool deck…
treated us to a nice meal…
and invited us to see her show. Pristine loves anything with music so it was a treat for her!
By the way, there’s a casino in the ship (along with other perks like movie houses, disco, bars, etc). Remember this photo I posted last Sunday?
The only reason Pristine was able to get inside that casino is because it is closed for business. They are not allowed to operate the casino while the ship is docked in Dubai! Casino lovers have to wait when the ship leaves the UAE port to have some fun!
The Crystal Symphony at night
Thanks for having us on board, Stacey! I pray for your safe journey, always. Till we meet again!
* Please say a little prayer for my friend Stacey and all the passengers and crew members of Crystal Symphony. The ship will go through pirate infested waters off the Gulf of Aden, near Somalia on their way to the Suez Canal in Egypt. *
