MIYC Extended Cruise Key West & Faro Blanco

Belle was a special treat, followed by an exceptional meal at the Lighthouse Grill. During the day, a small group went to the Dolphin Research Center and swam with the dolphins. Sandy Wallen scouted the Artists’ Colony for fun ideas for the MIYC Ship’s Store, and Aquafit in the pool drew many. We departed on a calm and sunny day with amazing visibility.
