Weather bad until Colon. And unfortunately, the second night we had a passenger suffer a medical emergency resulting in a lost port. It can’t be helped so you make the best of it.

Attendant needs to clean bathroom floor along wall and clean dressing table more frequent. Couch must be original. Bad shape.
