Each trip they secretly pick one man and one woman to be Mr. and Ms. Veendam. The person who discovers their identity, by talking to their fellow passengers, wins a prize, as do the Veendams. We were fortunate - my husband got chosen to be Mr. Veendam.

Quick Tips:

Participate in the sports and activities to win prizes. The first couple events aren't well attended, and you may win a prize for just showing up - check your daily schedule!

We just walked around Key West - it's compact and is nice when the weather isn't too hot.

When you get off your cruise ship at the Key West dock, you can walk a few blocks to the museum. It's on the right on Front Street, just past the Hilton. You can view the garden and some of the memorabilia next to the gift shop for free or pay to take the house tour.
