We are just back from the 1-21 sailing on the Grand Princess and we were riding back to the hotel with a couple who was on the Elation and they said that the day they left the people loading the big cages full of luggage onto the ship dropped one of the cages into the Galveston Harbor and all the bags from that cage were forever at the bottom of the harbor.
Can someone confirm this?
Also they said that the people were only compensated $75 for the loss of their luggage. IMO that is no where near enough money to re-buy clothes for the entire 5 day cruise.
Can anyone confirm if that was the amount that was given to the affected passengers?
