We arrived on Monday, April 22nd and are leaving tomorrow morning. On Saturday night at midnight before we left, I told my husband that I was not going based on the reviews. I was so worried about getting sick on the vacation. The reviews were terrible during March and early April and I had not read them until then. I... More
