Even though I have been on a private cruise along the Straits of Johor before, (come to think of it, it was exactly two years ago), when I was handed the opportunity to go on a cruise again, I took it up.

This cruise was at the invitation of Malaysia Tourism Council (MTC) as part of a familiarisation tour of Johor Tengah, after covering the Iskandar Puteri Kayak Challenge 2017, which was hosted at Puteri Harbour.

After some three decades in service, it was shipped to Thailand and was remodelled to its present condition, a comfortable cruise boat for charter by guests looking for a unique holiday.

On the fly bridge, which comfortably seats up to ten, enjoy the beauty of the ocean as the sea breeze caresses your hair. A private cruise like this stays in one’s memory forever.
