Raymond Ng (Bo) and Frederick Chow took an Alaskan cruise together (of course, their better halves came along too) and here is what Bo has to say about the trip,
“Alaska has been a place I have hoped to visit. As Chow Ping Hon shared the same interest, we decided to go together for an 11 night Alaska Cruise in end August on board the Celebrity “Century”.
The voyage started in Vancouver. It was an inside passage cruise. We visited Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway of Alaska and Victoria of British Columbia. Perhaps it is because it was already August and we were not sailing that north of Alaska, we did not see any iceberg. We did see the glaciers in Ice Strait Point. The only land excursion we joined was in Skagway and Emerald Lake is the highlight of this bus excursion. However, you can actually find more beautiful lakes in the Alberta Rockies.
“I didn’t know Bill well and in fact my first impression of him was not all positive. We never got any response from him when we tried to collect fee for our Toronto reunion despite repeated reminders sent to him by email. It turned out that he never read his email and the way he handled email was to delete all every month without opening even one. During the reunion gathering in Toronto my impression of him turned 180◦. I found him warm hearted, generous and fun loving and that’s how we should remember him” -- Dominic

When I first told people that we would want to spend a week driving around in Croatia and Slovenia prior to joining a river cruise from Budapest to Bucharest, most would give me a sidelong glance before showing interest. Even my wife had misgivings up to the point of our departure. She heard many horror stories of how tourists got stranded and robbed, especially in countries with foreign cultures and foreign languages. She told me she even prayed very hard at church. As it turned out, her prayers were fully answered because we had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable weeks ever. We encountered zero problems throughout. There was no difficulty in communicating as English was truly a global language, especially in the hospitality circles, failing that, body language worked wonders too. On the whole, we found people in both countries very friendly. We never met anyone unwilling to answer our questions, be they for direction or general information. The roads in cities and highways were in excellent repairs and when the sceneries were also pleasing to the eyes, the trip became a total pleasure.
