the royal caribbean: ovation of the seas

I went on my first cruise last April 2018. It was a family trip to celebrate both my grandparents’ birthdays and wedding anniversary, and my grandfather decided to spend it aboard the Royal Caribbean.

The Royal Caribbean ship is huge, and can hold up to almost 5,000 people. It has all sorts of amenities (as other blogs and videos will show), houses different restaurants and holds activities and entertainment on board. The ship was great, and so was the service. And since I found several blogs and videos online to be helpful in giving me a better idea of what to expect, I’ve listed down a few tidbits below.

bits of bohol: the island

Though I barely got to go around Bohol during my short stay, there are several spots I can recommend you visit while you’re there. Here’s a quick mini tour of some areas around Panglao.

South Palms Resort

Another one of Bohol’s beautiful resorts. This isn’t in the main beach area (Alona), but it’s pretty close by. South Palms Resort’s beach is private for guests and has a lot of hangout spots you can choose from. Aside from the umbrellas you see below, there are also lounge chairs and bean bags around.

I really liked the style of this resort–a more modern take on the kubo. Their beach front is wide and long, and the resort is surrounded by coconut trees and is levelled with the beach so it looks extra spacious.
