Earlier in November, close to 40 cast and crew members of Channel 8 long-form drama series, Life Less Ordinary, spent five days at sea, on board a Royal Caribbean cruise liner, to film a few upcoming episodes of the show. They explored every nook and cranny of the ship and attempted several activities on board, from rock-climbing to ice-skating.

There were new faces amongst the cast (Edmund Chen, Chen Yixi and Chen Yixin) and we were told new love lines will be formed and complications are set to arise with their appearances on the show -- so keep a look out for it in the coming new year.

They had early mornings and late nights, but it was not all work and no play - a few actors like Romeo Tan and Xiang Yun even packed their family members along for the short getaway – Romeo brought his parents and nephew and niece, while Xiang Yun brought her mum. Although they did not get to spend as much time together due to their packed filming schedules, the experience more than made up for it.

We go behind the scenes with the show's unofficial BTS photographer Romeo and his trusty lenses for a sneak peek of what went on the cruise.

Watch Life Less Ordinary on Toggle, or on weeknights at 7.30pm on Channel 8.
