It was certainly an annus horribilus with beloved having 8 eye surgeries and Mum suddenly dying. I pray for a gentle 2018 and my goal is to eliminate stress eating and drinking. Wine flows too easily on a ship! Somehow I’m up from my goal I brie... Read more

We have to change rooms in the morning and go down one deck. There were only three empty rooms available last week and we chose the least expensive of them. No need to totally nuke the bank! It was still way more than we spent on this room but w... Read more
