I remember on my first cruise that we kept our suitcases against the wall on one side of the cabin. I tried to put them under the bed but they were about an inch too high to slide under. I didn't realize that I could lift the bed an inch and slide them under. I thought the beds were bolted to the floor and didn't even bother to try to lift them up. :o

Take care,

My wife and I went on our first cruise last April it went pretty smooth .But I asked alot of questions and read alot of old post on cruisemates which I think helped alot.But still we made a few mistakes one that cost us 4 days. First we should of left a day early to meet the ship but we decieded to fly the same day and thats the day Alaska airlines computer crashed long story short we missed the ship and 4 sea days sailing to Hawaii.But Alaska airlines flew us to Kona for 4 days and put us up in a resort it was nice.We will always leave a day early know .Another mistake was the old cell phone roaming charge thing which was my fault because I had read Kukis Post about that subject that one cost $75.00.And just a bunch a little things like getting lost on the ship that was fun tho.I really think that finding this web site made a big diffrence in are first cruise! And I feel that would be a big Mistake if your going on your first cruise is not to find a place where you can ask questions and pick the minds of people who have been there and done that
