Saga Ruby Cruise Ship Arrives in
It was wonderful to wake up on Saturday morning and to stand out in the street and see the huge profile of the cruise ship, the Saga Ruby, anchored off shore. The taxi delivered us to the Hangaroa port and we were ferried out to the Cruise ship on the ship’s tender.
Once on board we were given the ship’s information and key card to our cabin. Our cabin was surprisingly roomy. There were twin single beds, two wardrobes, two sets of drawers and a fridge. The bathroom had a bath with a shower over it and a good sized vanity unit.
The ship was multi layered with approximately 8 decks. On board there was a ballroom, a dining hall, restaurant, shop, hairdresser, gym with weights and table tennis and cycling machines, a small outdoor pool plus an indoor pool.
Numerous activities and classes were offered for the enjoyment of the passengers – all included in the price of the ticket. Paul and I enjoyed table tennis and the gym equipment. I went to the computer class and the water colour painting which was great and we both met lots of new friendly people.
