We are on the cruise for 1 week then we are having a week at The Hard Roch Hotel in Orlando. weve been to Orlando and the Hard Rock numerous times so we are ok with that.

Board early, book dinner at the speciality restaurants which are fab (under 13s not allowed though), stuff yourself on onion rings and burgers at Johnny Rockets, see the iceskating show, relax and enjoy...! Any specific questions just ask here!
