Review summary

Been a while since last cruise..pleased with larger room..learned a lot from this one..planning another in 2020..have balcony for next time..will ask for fan and ice bucket next time..learned how to use hub to keep in touch with each other..pack less..didn't use everything brough..will bring my soda when come next..cause sodas on islands taste different..need more things for men to do..we don't drink or gamble..I loved getting pampered..not having to cook was great.
