I'm currently in Singapore waiting to board the Azamara Quest. I've treated myself and girlfriend Samantha to a night at te Marina Bay Sands hotel. I couldn't come to Singapore and not jump in that amazing pool!
We board the Azamara Quest today which will take us from Singapore to Borneo first for Christmas Day spent with Orangutangs and then onwards to Brunei,The Phillipines, Vietnam, China and finally finishing in Hong Kong. Weather here in Singapore has been cloudy but hot. Great weather for relaxing on the roof of this amazing hotel. The Azamara Quest is a smaller ship comparatively to some I've been on lately. It holds about 600 passengers so everything is scaled down, but from all I've heard from people who have cruised before, it is amazing! A smaller ship means we can get into ports that the larger ones can't, so we'll find ourselves closer to the action!
Prior to Singapore I was performing on the Celebrity Millennium in Vietnam and enroute to Hong Kong.
Vietnam, in particular HaLong Bay was incredible. It was my first time there and I was blown away by it. Amazing scenery, friendly locals and loads to see and do. We took a little lunch cruise through HaLong Bay that took us around the bay and eventually to an Island where we trekked into a hidden cave there. The cave was enormous and photos can't do it justice...but here's a couple!
Once we left Vietnam we set sail to Hong Kong for an overnight before Samantha and I flew to Singapore. In Hong Kong I went to my favourite (and also the world's biggest) music store, Tom Lee. It's was totally worth the long walk to find it, they had everything...
After the music store we had some delicious dim sum and headed back to the ship in a food coma from lunch.
For now that's it from me. More blogs and photos to come on this next three week adventure throughout Asia performing onboard the Azamara Quest. Merry Xmas to everyone and a happy New Year! See you in 2025!!
