Default Rule #1 - Check your Docs!!!

It's been said over and over and yet some of us still don't do it.

Newly wed couple friends of ours booked the 14 day Mediteranean for their honeymoon. Everywhere they looked stated October 20 to Nov.

They were so busy with their wedding plans that there was no more thought to their cruise. They received their docs and the date was Oct.21. And so they showed up at the airport on Oct 21. The day after their ship sailed. Apparently it was a typing error. As a result they missed the first three days of the cruise.

So Check! check! check!

Ummmm. Sounds like they should have a nice refund/compensation from Carnival.

Good point, I always check docs, especially spelling of names, etc... HOw unfortunate to have to start your honeymoon like that, but at least they did get on the ship.

Double checking mine now! We leave in 4 days! (Liberty, Rome to Home). But what way to learn a lesson. Thanks for the reminder Fabrizzi!

Thanks for the heads up. I have to admit I check a lot of things on those docs....(especially the VIP Check In for us Platinum folks) but I never would have thought to double check the date!
