After a year being land-bound, Lisa Perkovic joins the Western Australians getting their sea legs back post lockdown on a TRUTH NORTH adventure.
Almost twelve months to the day since I was on board a cruise ship, I’m on deck, drinking a frozen margarita.
That fact shouldn’t be unusual because I love margaritas and for some reason, they taste better when you’re on a cruise ship, when you’ve got the wind in your hair and the sea all around you.
Twelve long months ago, I was drinking frozen margaritas while floating on the Arabian Sea. Aboard the Celebrity Constellation. I’d hopped from Singapore to Thailand, onto Sri Lanka and India, then over to Oman and Dubai without a care in the world. There’s no way any of us could have known how much the world would change; shockingly, suddenly, and on the coattails of my journey back to Australia. However, to be back aboard a ship, albeit a much smaller vessel, contained to Australian waters feels like the winds have finally started to change.
