SS Galaxy - Queen of the Sagittarian Sea

by Darleez DeCuir

SS Galaxy, anchored in the Sagittaria Estate, celebrated its 1 year anniversary in June 21st – 22nd 2008. SS Galaxy is a creation of architect Bill Stirling - it is the only full size, full scaled, and full featured virtual cruise ship in Second Life. It spans 3 sims with more than 8 decks of fun and entertainment.

Read more about the ship and the activities it has to offer on the SS Galaxy website.

As I currently hold a position as a Stage Manager on the Meta Makeover Show (for SLCN TV) production team, I was honoured to celebrate the 1 year anniversary as a VIP Ticket holder on board together with the Prim Perfect Publications staff. Thanks to the whole team for this wonderful experience, and especially to Saffia Widdershins, the CEO of Prim Perfect Publications, Editor of the Prim Perfect Magazine and Hostess of the Meta Makeover Show who invited her staff to celebrate this magnificent event.

During the anniversary weekend there were also lots of fun stuff on board; fireworks, skeet shoot competitions, helicopter rides around the ship and more. And what did I dare, yes – take the helicopter ride…

Here we fly and admire the gorgeous views!

After the helicopter ride I was enjoying a wonderful concert, Mia Maxted playing and singing live in the Zodiac Ballroom.

Well done Galaxy, I hope many more years to come for this luxurious ship. I also want to thank the friendly and helpful staff I met there. I am so going to visit The Galaxy soon again and encourage you to do that too!
