"I could swear it was this way... But the stairs are only going up here!? I don't understand... Where am I? How do I get to my room?"

I can't even count the number of times this happened to me. The ship is not symetric and is quite large. I'm getting better at it, but for the first couple of days I either followed someone to the mess hall, or had follow a well-defined path: get out of my room, turn right and follow the hallway until I exit on the port side, walk by the rescue boats, then re-enter the ship (before reaching the heli-pad) at the door labeled "upper deck", which opens to stairs going down (?), follow them and then walk to the starboard side, confirm that the main lab is on my right, go down another two sets of stairs (conveniently near each other, not something you can count on here!), and it should be right there!

It's really easy to get lost on the Louis!

At least I know where the ship plans are! 500 deck, port side, looking aft.   600 deck, looking port.
