Caribbean Cruise 2019

PART ONE – OOOOHHHH MARTIN

Chris had overseen booking 3 nights in a SoBe hotel, with a brief for somewhere nice, central and not too pricey. Technically he met this brief, however, there was a significant oversight to the Clevelander South Beach Hotel and Bar…it had an outside pool, bar and party area, with a live DJ playing until 5am every night of the week.
