Day 16: Thursday, October 25, 2012
The drive from Bangkok to the port city of Laem Chebang felt like time had frozen still, thanks to horrible Thai traffic, but we finally boarded the majestic Diamond Princess!

We even got upgraded to a mini-suite on Dolphin Deck!

Day 19: Sunday, October 28, 2012
After two and a half days at sea, we were eager to wake up bright and early for a port excursion — breakfast at the Singapore zoo! Ryan got held up in immigrations for nearly an hour since they were “testing their systems”, so we missed our tour bus and decided to do the excursion on our own (which turned out to be a blessing in disguise).

Afterward, we hit up the Marina Bay Sands again before heading back on board.
