We certainly can sympathize with you. For many years our luggage only lasted one or two cruises when we travelled overseas. It was a joke, for us, buy new pretty soft sided luggage for Christmas and throw it away before the next. That is until we bought our first Samsonite 28’’ Spinner type luggage, years ago. Can’t believe it, we have travelled around the globe so many times with them I’ve lost count and the ramp rats haven’t damaged one yet. We have five now. Maybe Samsonite should hire bigger than their 500 lb. guerillas to test them for their adds, LOL. Hey, they still look pretty too.
