I was sure I gained at least 10lbs but was surprised I only gained three. All the walking is great exercise! The crew was very accommodating and so nice. We made several friends from around the world and we look forward to seeing them again. The boat was beautiful and very clean. I loved having a suite with a full view window. There was one glitch.
