As Joey said, these kids loved their 5 day ocean voyage. And it’s great to be home again.
Before talking to the kids I was expecting them to be dying to get off the ship as it was basically 5 days of cloudy rainy weather but to my surprise they were all in great spirits and it was … Continue reading
