Great trip report

You appear to have taken the absolute chaos at the start of your holidays very well. Had the same experience about three Christmases ago involving, cancelled flights and missing bags prior to a cruise out of the US. I had the added experience of locking myself out of the rental car on arrival at the hotel (sans bags) on the first night as well. Was never so stressed in my life after the experience and just wanted to curl up in a dark room. The cruise did work its magic at calming me. 3 of our 4 bags made to to us a couple of days late but 1 bag came straight home to London a few days after we arrived back home.

The experience has not stopped my globe-trotting spirit though.
