Over 100 senior citizens from the Bhartiya Samaj social group recently ventured aboard P&O’s Pacific Jewel for a three-night Food and Wine Cruise.
Mornings began with a ‘Bollyworks’ session led by fitness trainer (and Puketapapa Local Board member) Ms Ella Kumar and Bollywood dance led by Ms Simran Chadha. Other guests were inspired to join the group and start their day with some Bollywood-style fun.
Guests also earned their calories on the dance floor before sitting together for dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant, enjoying fellowship with both old and new friends.
The cruise was a huge success, with guests enjoying excellent hospitality, delicious food and plenty of onboard activities. Bhartiya Samaj offer heartfelt thanks to Saadia Juvale of The Travel Brokers for organising the group’s participation in the cruise. Some of the guests commented:
Asha Gupta: It was my first cruise trip which turned out to be a memorable one. I enjoyed it very much and we all are very happy.
Sadguna and Madhubhai Patel: It was a fantastic leisure time with all our friends. Thanks to Bhartiya Samaj for giving us this wonderful opportunity. We look forward to many more such wonderful experiences.
Sudha Nayak: We had a blast. The food was awesome! We were spoilt for choice. The service was great, staff was very courteous and ready to help at every point. Entertainment programmes were excellent, especially the dance show. Superb! Also enjoyed informative workshops on metabolism and orthotics. Overall a fabulous experience!
