Traveler Tips

I wish dancing would be allowed as advertised, I understand covid changes what we are allowed to do, but updating your site with these restrictions would be helpful.
We opted for the upgraded package so we had all our drinks included, which I would definitely recommend, the waiter just kept bringing the cocktails, nothing was too much trouble.
