Your Sophie was hardcore using the hot tub and the pool, I was so impressed watching her with my fleece on lol

One Xmas/New Year we stayed at the Hilton opposite DTD. There was frost on the ground it was so cold but pool water was lovely so we stripped off and jumped in. After a while got out to find no towels, had to go into the hotel which still had aircon running for some crazy reason, we were frozen.
I always check for towels before entering a pool now

I suppose at least there was a chance to get in the adult pool lol! Going to be weird not being in the pool every day.

Thanks. I only get in at 8pm the night before and staying at the airport so going to have to go with whats at the port I think or try and get some in duty free at the airport. I'm not too fussy with wine but would rather not have dregs lol

It's going to be a great cruise, just be prepared for the weather change leaving the med, pack lots of layers and waterproofs for NY.

I think youll be fine stocking up at the port, lots of ports in the med too this itinerary so lots of opportunity to grab so gorgeous wine.

That's my plan! Get a few in each port! Its only me drinking it anyway so I'm sure 6 bottles will be plenty - Barcelona, Cadiz and Lisbon
