Singapore and Sea Days

When we arrived to the ship our luggage was already in our room waiting for us, so we spent some time unpacking. By the time we were done with unpacking it was time to eat dinner. We went to the Santa Fe dining room, a Tex Mex themed dining room that served the same food as all the other dining rooms except they had a specialty of Chicken Fajitas. We ate dinner and went back to the room to crash for the night. We were still jet lagged at that point. The next day was a sea day, which was much needed. I spent some time exploring the ship. I've never been on the Diamond before, both of my parents have. I went up to the lido deck and laid out for a bit. Apparently much much too long for my white skin. I got incredibly burnt.
Our first port of call was Singapore. We got off the ship, took a shuttle bus into town and attempted to find an ATM. The ATM that we found was broken so we had to search around for a money converter. We finally found a bank that would convert our dollars into Singapore dollars. We then took the bus to the Singapore Botanical Gardens. We quickly walked through the gardens until we found the National Orchid Gardens.
