I bet next time you will check your dates better. I do not agree with your "Beware" comment since its your fault that (you) missed the ship. There where multiple time during booking the cruise which YOU did and when you receive your documents you mean to tell me you never looked come on I just don't believe that at all. Personally I would never ask for a refund on something that was my fault and not the cruise line. It's like saying that you expect rccl to also give you a wake up call the morning of your cruise to make sure you remembered that you had a cruise to attend. Not so smart people do not so smart thing's i guess. If there was a problem where the cruise line had been wrong then I would have no problem and fell they owe you something, but in this case for sure not Royal's fault or problem.
