Its quite scary to read in news about the outbreak on this ship 11 guest caught it when they were on it for 11 weeks they are also asking people to go for blood test who were on this ship every body is so quick to bring down island cruises about recent events at easter but in my ipoine you dont read much about them as you do larger ships.

We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine.
