Oh, it was awful. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
In the interest of preserving the privacy of my kids, I won't name any names here. But I can say that 2 out of 4 kids threw massive temper tantrums - one when we arrived, one when it was time to go. One child forgot to pack shoes. One child's shoes were stolen poolside. One child had an accident, rendering that child's shoes unwearable. One child's recently injured toenail popped off again in the lobby, leaving a bloody mess everywhere.
Two children were terrified of the Dead Sea itself, and screamed the entire time they were in the water, much to the annoyance of the other swimmers. Two children broke out in hives because of the saltiness of the Sea. One husband thought to cheer up his wife by bringing her an iced coffee with Bailey's, poolside, but wife didn't realize it had Bailey's in it and let one of the kids drink some.
It was a mess. An absolute, awful, disaster of a trip.
I will say this, though: I definitely plan to go back.
Without the kids.
