On the 7th of February on our noon cruise, we bring you the Chinese New Year at its very best.
The Chinese New Year also known as the spring festival is a corner stone marked by the Chinese lunisolar calendar and the date changes yearly. A Chinese new year is embodied by one of twelve animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac. Well, this year just happens to be the year of The Monkey. Persons born during the year of the monkey are perceived to be quick-witted, curious, mischievous, and innovative. The year of the monkey is believed to be one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar. Why do we celebrate the Chinese New Year? We celebrate to appreciate a year of hard work; relax with the family and to wish for a lucky, prosperous coming year.
The Monkey has lucky signs ranging from numbers to colors to flowers to directions. Curious what they are? Here goes; 1, 7 and 8 are the monkeys lucky numbers, white, gold, and blue are the lucky colors, chrysanthemums and alliums are the lucky flowers and finally north, northwest and west are the lucky directions. Another interesting thing about the year of the monkey is the train of famous people born during this year. Top of the list is Julius Caesar, followed by Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Dickens, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Will Smith, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Nick Carter, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus the list is endless but startlingly interesting.
Apart from the tacky 3 card poker which will be hosted in the 3 card poker casino, there will be hot entrees sampling the diverse Chinese cuisine and exotic Chinese dances and tunes. Traditionally, red packets for the family were distributed during dinner which often contained money to reflect good luck and honorability. To honor this tradition, everyone on board will receive a lucky red envelope.
