Prologue: Raising the Curtain on a Fun Summer Vacation
After finally getting their phones back after 2 weeks, many students' faces relaxed into smiles.
The mobile phone has become an indispensable tool for people living in the modern world. The popularity of smartphones among teens under 20 exceeded 99% by 2020. Looking back, there is no doubt about that fact.
Since I only started using a mobile phone in high school, it’s still not a high priority as a necessity, but I guess it’s only a matter of time until it becomes so.
The luxury liner sailed gracefully across the ocean whilst providing the students a pleasant summer vacation for a while.
Looking back, I can’t really say that I enjoyed my summer vacation last year.
A group I can call friends, a lover.
Even if it’s just a passing acquaintance, the number of students I can call by their name.
All of it is incomparable to last year, showing a great leap forward.
This time spent on such a cruise ship will be a page in our lives that we will never forget.
You can enjoy the pool, a delicious meal, or talk with the person you love on the deck overlooking the ocean.
However, this does not mean that you can do whatever you want. You need to have fun within the confines of the rules.
For example, students are not allowed to leave their rooms after 10pm unless there are special circumstances.
The rules seem to have gotten much stricter than the ones we had on board last year.
These “special circumstances” include sudden illness during the night. In such a case, you will have to go to the infirmary, which is open 24 hours a day.
I don’t think any student would break the rules that have been set, but the penalties are quite severe, so there shouldn’t be any problems.
In addition to that, there are certain levels of the ship that are prohibited to students, so you can’t just walk around anywhere you want. Even within the permitted levels, there are areas that are off limits.
Now, with moderation and morals in mind, let’s enjoy this cruise.
