Book a Cruise with a Room Near the Elevators

2 of 9

The Request: Book a cruise with a room near the elevators. The reason? The traveler explained that sometimes she drinks too much, and that’s the only way she can find her room at the end of the night.

The Agent: Francine Dumont, Plaza Travel, Encino, CA

The Results: “I didn’t really react,” Francine said. “I kept my feelings to myself, but I thought this was really, really strange.” Feelings aside, Francine’s client was given her elevator-adjacent room and was able to spend her trip hitting the bottle with nary a concern about finding her way back.
