Going Overseas: Cruise to Nowhere

The last time I was overseas was February 2020 when the pandemic was still brewing and came back to Singapore acting like a hero by bringing in few boxes of face masks. It has been such a long time since my last travel that packing for travel felt unnatural to me.

Technically, I was going overseas, leaving Singapore for 4 nights in international waters. The feeling while onboard cruise is like being on another world, where you are served well and felt full all the time. While the common name of this kind of trip is “cruise to nowhere”, to many of us, the cruise itself is the destination.

I embarked on 30 September 2021 and returned back to Singapore on 4 October 2021.
