This blog is late because I decided to wait until the cruise is over and tell about all of it, and also because Wi-Fi on the ship is very expensive and slow.
And before I go any further, let me say that this is a big cruise liner and too big for my liking, so I don’t think I’ll be doing a cruise on one this size again.

They were definitely friends we will keep in touch with but it was home time for us not long after. We somehow made it back home after a very fun night - the biggest night out on our trip yet! The next morning Lachie was not in a good state and nauseous to say the least - he didn't improve much throughout the day either. Luckily our ...
