Arlene at the Gang plank of Reyna Filipina, upon their return to south harbour, I take this shot from a distance of 500 meters from the pier,
We left manila for a holy week cruise to Hong Kong, it was suppose to be a 36 hours voyage to cross the South china Sea, but alot of delays made the holiday cruise to a panic stricken ship voyage.
nasiraan kami while crossing China Sea, we lay dead in the water for 3 hours
later, I have experienced the largest waves in my life, me and my family are so scared , when we reached Hong Kong we immediately find a Hotel and buy airline tickets home, bahala na about the refunds, Arlene's family did take the journey home
