Ship tip

Bring everything you paid for on paper, but the check in process before getting on the ship, completely messed up my kids room and changed their package by accident and it ended costing me more money for something I already prepaid.

It took forever, we were actually in the front of the line, and they had a bunch of hold ups at the port.
