    As far as private islands go, I don’t think that’s happening. All 7 ships won’t be in the Caribbean. Even if they are, all major cruise lines do well with one private island.

      I just sold my private island to a guy from M T Lott Real Estate. He said it was for his parents as an anniversary present. I knew I should’ve held out for more money. (Wink, wink and tongue firmly planted in cheek)

    Bug Juice! So exciting! Though will probably just make me sad that I’m a grownup now and can no longer go to camp 🙁
