12 Things I Love from Our First 36 Hours On Board the Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas

Our first 5 hours on board were spent fretting over the luggage American Air didn’t load onto our plane to Barcelona Friday night. Not the ideal beginning. The teen, to her credit, kept the faith while I imagined isolating between two outfits for the next 7 days…and doing a little […]
