Our cruise holiday began with two days in Singapore before embarking on the ship.W.e travelled on the non -stop Tiger Air flight. It was an hour late! As well there was drama over the insulin in my carry on bag Eventually I had to sign an indemnity that I would be injecting during the flight. I have travelled with insulin for many years and this is the first time there has been an issue
The previously booked, Strand Hotel in Belcoolen Street, was an excellent choice.
On our first day we booked a tour on the ‘hop on hop off’ bus tour from the Suntec office of Singapore Discovery. We first went to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino where we had morning tea and enjoyed the panoramic view from the 57th level Observation Deck.
We hopped off the bus at Clarke Quay or lunch. We ate at Hooters claimed to be their only restaurant in the East.The dress standard of their waitress should ensure their success!
