Matt, John, Carol, Daniel and I headed to the Mix Bar for some Cocktail Making fun!  What a blast…

Excitement was high as we boarded the Pacific Dawn, after a quick stop at the TRS counter to claim back the taxes on our recent pre-cruise spendings.  Once on board the first stop for Matt and I was the Aqua Spa.  Here we quickly signed up to take advantage of their couples package again.  Then it was off to Plantation for a quick lunch.  The Dawn now has an amazing adven…
