Missing The Ship Life

I must admit that after almost a year since I disembarked from Voyager of the Seas, I am kind of missing the life at sea. I could still remember the very first day I went aboard this very huge cruise ship while docked in Galveston, Texas. It was almost chaotic at least for me, trying to find my way inside this ship. I remember staying in a passenger's cabin for the first 2 weeks because my own crew cabin was not yet available. The first month was very hard, trying to adjust with my co-workers and the separation from family. It took me perhaps 2 months to really adjust and find my stable ground.

I had a great time working onboard the Voyager of the Seas. I would always remember Windjammer, Johnny Rockets, the mess hall and the gym(Take note that out of the 4 unforgettable places, 3 of which are food-related). Sometimes I would dream myself back in the ship, walking along the decks, giving my usual lectures in the Bar or just having a good time with the Filipino mafia during our dinner or lunch breaks. The port days are the best although I earn a lot during the sea days. I could never forget the time when we crossed the Atlantic Ocean on our way to Europe. Those 14 sea days were amazing!

It is definitely an experience worth remembering. I heard that the Voyager of the Seas will be doing an Asian cruise this summer. Hopefully, I could find an opportunity to take a cruise on the VOTS and reminisce of my fun and even hard times while working on a cruise ship.
