One way to unwind & detox post-CNY is to go on a cruise

You will need this.

Now that the last of the dong qiang has been qiang-ed and the incessant badgering to get a job/ kid/ husband/ wife/ boyfriend/ girlfriend/ car/ house/ dog/ cat has ceased, it is time to love yourself a little. Again.

And do a proper unwind and detox from all the unnecessary human interaction and drama.

What though?

Here's a non-exhaustive list of things you can do.

Just you and the non-judgmental water that doesn’t ask you when you gonna have kids.

A rock wall never begs for ang pows, it only begs you to climb it.

A basketball belongs in the basket. Like your second uncle’s third wife’s fourth son’s comments on your impending uncle/ auntie-hood.

You can leap away too, from awkward conversations with that nosy aunty.

The only place to spend your well-deserved ang pow money.

Nothing says “K thx bye” when you can’t say anything at all with all the food in your mouth.

Patty mess > Pettiness

The only kind of human interaction you deserve.

Partner and kid not included. Or you can get them both to fend off the comments next year.


Are you suggesting I spend all my ang pows on these activities?

No. We are asking you to spend a portion of it in one place.

Onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise.

You see, all the aforementioned activities and more can be found on a typical Royal Caribbean cruise such as the Voyager of the Seas.

Hang on, is the ship even big enough for so many different activities?

15 decks?! Enough said.

That’s like a massive building floating in the sea.

And because of the built-up nature of the cruise, you can expect rooms that are unexpectedly spacious.

More activities for you to detox


Seriously, this looks like a mall.

Value for money

So instead of burning ang pow money by doing these activities on an ad hoc basis, why not just spend a portion of said money on Royal Caribbean cruises?

With so many things to see and do (and most without an additional fee), this will be the best detox for any CNY exertions.

Let's not forget that this is also an overseas cruise, so there's plenty of chance to explore exotic foreign lands.
