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…
