The Indy has a fully kitted medical centre, on deck 2, which has 2 doctors and 3 nurses. Thankfully I have not needed their assistance but a freind who did could not believe how good they were.

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you?
