Think forgetting to pack underwear for a cruise is just a rookie mistake?
It's easy to point the finger at new cruisers, but you'd be surprised. Even the most experienced cruisers and scrupulous planners endure face-palm moments. And chances are, you can recall one of your own.
That's why we asked our readers to fess up about their slip-ups.
From accidentally purchasing a print at the art auction to packing only one of each shoe, the stories will make you laugh, gasp or double-check your suitcase (or all of the above), even if you think you're a pro. Don't feel bad; we Cruise Critic editors make mistakes, too!
