Before the party started a few of us met in the lounge and shared some delicious appetizers. We had the Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese and the Calamari, which is served with tomato sauce, lemon-lime cilantro ...

Cirque Du Soleil’s Quidam – Mesmerizing

Thursday night I accepted an amazing invitation from a very generous family for me and the kids to sit in a skybox and watch Cirque Du Soleil's Quidam at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. It was absolutely one of the best nights ever. The show was beautiful and the kids, as well as adults, were mesmerized by the strength and flexibility of the performers! I love living in Fort Lauderdale and being able to see shows like Quidam! Deb

I heard lots of members and guests commenting ...

There were fire trucks and there was even a Swat vehicle that looked liked a ...

Hi! Not only am I still hearing great reviews about the Valentine's Day Specials Chef Phil offered in Acquario last week but there's also exciting news about Wi-Fi at the resort.
