    You would have hoped, I think most of the issues were the check-in agent not knowing what to do.
    The food was very good, for Gate Gourmet.

    Had to smile when you spoke about the time share sell as Orange Lake is where I fell into the trap during our very first trip in 1991.
    The hotel was great, thankfully I had been forewarned about the timeshare thing and so knew what they were up to with their 'tour' offer.
    The car was great, if it wasn't for it not fitting on UK roads I'd like one here.

    Gorgeous apartment, though. Very comfortable for the duration!
    Very comfortable indeed.

    Nice easy travel day and I could have told you that you could use the ecv up to the gate
    Yes I knew what we should have done with the ECV, but you have a nephew who was quoting the IATA regulations about Li-On batteries....

    Looking forward to the rest of your trip
    It was bigger than our first house, by quite a long way.

    We think Norwegian are great, low prices, friendly crew, comfortable planes...

    Maybe next time when we have a little longer to relax, we only slept in the appartment remeber.

    We have considered Orange lake as an option if we go back as Sarah would like to go with us and their 2 bed apartment looks a good alternative to a hotel or villa plus we like that area to stay

    We're going back there in January, so I'd happily say we recommend it.

    The accommodation is fantastic. I even quite like the slab!

    How you could tear yourselves away from this sweet thing is beyond me.

    Slab grew on us as the week went on, so much so that we did look to see if Ford sells anything similar over here, sadly they do not.

    Mr Fluffels does a very good 'put upon cat' face when he wants to.

    I can't believe I just sat here reading a trip report that's a year old.

    It wouldn't be so bad if you hadn't have commented on it the first time around.

    I didn't resurrect it from the archives, blame PalmerGang and Deb.

    That's what alerted me to the fact it was ancient. Man, I need a holiday.
