Universal Studios Singapore

Once off the Mariner, we embarked on our week long adventure in Sentosa, Singapore. Our first mission was laundry! We had to go on the mainland to find a coin operated laundry or risk paying more than $100 to have things washed! The cruise didn’t have a self-serve laundry and neither did our hotel. Apart from this and a mix up with our transfer off the ship, it was the only thing I could fault about our stay!

Anyway, once disembarking off our ship, we checked into the Festive Hotel in Sentosa.

It’s central to everything in Sentosa and we got given monorail passes for the duration of our stay. The monorail gets you around the island, it’s the main form of transport.

So needless to say, first stop was Universal Studios Singapore! Was a short 5 min stroll from our hotel…

I don’t have a lot of photos from this day. We were on a lot of rides!

The girls loved the rollercoasters! One of them was in Far Far Away land (all Shrek-themed rides). In the middle of the day, it started to pour rain, but this did not stop the ride running and they rode the rollercoaster in pouring rain! They loved it (my husband, not so much!). IMG_0321

As Miss O had a fractured toe, getting around was an issue. So we hired a “stroller” for her. Turned out to be a blessing! We were able to store all our stuff in it and not have to carry it around. Plus it didn’t stop Miss O, she went on everything!!

We had a fab day. After the park closed we went to the Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa for dinner. Universal Studios is located next to a whole area where there are shops and restaurants all nearby. A bit like Downtown Disney in California. The Hard Rock was just across the road from the park. Was lovely to not have to think about anything. Then a short walk later we were back in our hotel!
