Biggest Mix-Up: When we arrived for the first time to our room, we found two mysterious suitcases waiting for us.  We guessed we had gotten the wrong room number (it was TOO nice), but we later found out, our bags had been sent to the wrong ship and someone else’s had been delivered to ours!  I guess we are lucky to have our original dirty clothes back…

One thought on “Border Crossing: Mediterranean Cruise

  1. haha I laughed at the hiking boots in the gym thing because we had to do the same thing! It was embarassing at first but then we got over it because after all you see all kinds of weirdness on a cruise.
