Being on a cruise is one of the things in my long bucket list. I mean, who doesn’t want to get on board and enjoy all the happening activities on a cruise ship? When we go travel, we came back more tired than before because we need to commute and go sightseeing, follow our fully packed itinerary, etc. So if you really want to relax and recharge, the best way is to go on a cruise.
Thanks to Hwajing Travel & Tours (华京旅游), I had the opportunity to board SuperStar Libra for a 2D1N stay. For this cruise, SuperStar Libra that homeported in Penang departs from Swettenham Pier to international waters.
Hwajing Travel & Tours (华京旅游)
Hwajing Travel and Tours has been around for 30 years, being the pioneer in Malaysian Cruise Industry. All these years, they went all their way to design affordable yet unique cruise travel packages to give more value to their customers.
This year, Hwajing Travel & Tours came up with “Royal High Tea” session that is specially designed to enrich the cruise experience for their customers.
Royal High Tea
We made a grand entrance into Four Seasons Restaurant as the steward attendants who stood in line greeted us one by one. It makes me feel so special, just like a VIP! Then, we were escorted to our seats.
Every steward attendant are ensured to be well-trained and is clad in traditional steward outfit, white gloves and white napkins. This is how traditional English high tea standard is. It shows how much effort they put to make this high tea session a special experience.
High tea, high tea, what’s a high tea without tea? Let’s begin by selecting our tea. All their teas are exclusively by Twinings that originates from Britain; truly English indeed! Selections include English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey Tea, Peppermint Tea, and Green Tea. In this “Royal High Tea” by Hwajing, they don’t refill the tea for you. Don’t be too surprised because it is in a good way. They will give you a new teabag instead. Hence, you can try different teas if you want 😉
Here’s the full menu on what we’ve had. Stuffed ourselves silly! Eating is my perfect destress activity! Raise your hand if you agree!!
Let me present to you, the 3-tiers of afternoon tea pastries that will certainly make you happy after enjoying them. Majority of the pastries on the first 2 tiers are savory pastries while the last one consists of sweet temptations. So what makes this high tea so special except from dining in a cruise? Brace yourselves – IT’S REFILLABLE! Yes, forget about the worries of the world and just indulge yourself in the afternoon treats.
