Following a ‘quiet’ evening in the Loews Royal Pacific hotel, it was all fun, fun, fun from there on in. The group got to enjoy VIP treatment at both Universal and Islands of Adventure, squeezing in every theme park ride (which left one or two of the agents feeling very queasy!), while the evening consisted of fantastic food and some great nightlife at the vibrant ‘City Walk’.

A little bit of work was done as the group visited the other Universal hotels and also got a chance to experience some fine dining at the Rosen Shingle Creek.

There was even a bit of time for some more fun in Wet ’n’ Wild as well as some essential Christmas shopping in the local malls and premium outlets.
