Hi! We are Joyce and Mike from Southern California. Both in our early sixties. We cruise about once per year. We finally made it to Platinum and this is our first trip since making Platinum.
We are on our way to ship in van to cruise line.
More later.

Margaritaville, first beer at District brew house etc. the conch fritters were amazing, shrimp Caesars salad was great! Club sandwich was pretty terrific! Great for lunch, especially if you don’t have to pay for it! Yahoo!

Lots of free stuff in stateroom:
Invites to captains cocktail party, extra free dining too! Trying to arrange it all with shows and dining already booked. Mikes previous casino play is finally paying off for us! Yay! (He is sapphire level if that helps).
