Provence Dining Room

It was very nice, but our section was the only one without the sparkling lights. Was a little dark but fabulous wait staff more than made up for it!

Bayou Cafe & Steakhouse

Too many ships coming in at the same time! Airport was absolutely insane! Far too many people flying at the same time and checking luggage took over an hour

No problems until we arrived at airport
