Cruise to January Warmth - Part I

During the month of January many places are cold and snowy. And, if you live in a warmer climate, you have probably experienced the cold and snowy in SL. So, I'm going to dedicate January to introducing some sunny and warm places in SL.

The first is the SS Galaxy Cruise Ship. The luxury cruise ship is 3 sims long and anchored in the Sagittarian Sea. The sims are labled the AFT, MID and FORWARD sections. Teleporters are located in each section of the ship to direct you to the different attractions located throughout the 8 decks.

Because there is so much to see on this huge ship, I will have 3 postings about the SS Galaxy. The AFT section is the main boarding point for the ship and the concentration for this blog entry.

SS Galaxy - AFT Section

When you board the AFT section, you enter the main reception area of the ship. The ship uses avies to staff the ship, so you will often find staff in the reception area to answer your questions and direct you to the different areas of the ship. Pricing for rooms and suits can also be found in the reception area.

In this section of the ship, you'll find:

The Zodiac Ballroom
