Sophia Celebrates Her Birthday With an Avegates Cruise

Building strong friendships and improving her lifestyle are two important personal goals for Multicap customer Sophia. 

As a member of Avegates, Sophia achieved both when she celebrated her recent birthday by taking a Whitsunday Cruise with other Avegates members Ann-Marie and Emma. 

“I am very lucky that I celebrated my birthday on the cruise with my friends and Shay from Avegates. It was also lovely to be spoiled by the restaurant staff. They sang Happy Birthday to me and I was so excited that I couldn't blow the candles out and everyone laughed. The best thing about my birthday was staying up late and partying until 4am the next morning. Emma, Ann-Marie and Shay are AWESOME” she laughed. 

The Whitsunday Cruise was a five day cruising adventure taking in the beautiful views of the Whitsundays while also participating in a wide variety of activities. Activities ranged from trivia to swimming, themed party nights, watching movies and sporting games on the big screen, going to a variety of shows or just relaxing.

“I love watching the shows and doing trivia. These are my favourite activities on the boat,” said Sophia. 

In addition to the on-board entertainment, passengers  were able to depart the ship and explore Airlie Beach for a few hours to check out the wonderful scenery, snorkel, dive, swim, paddle or just relax on the breathtaking white sand beach.

 “I love being a part of Avegates and since joining I feel like I have increased my confidence and independence, and improved my lifestyle. I'm happy and most importantly I get to meet and make friends,” added Sophia.
