    We have a cruise booked on carnival very soon. You will not believe what they are pulling. Especially to adopted children that already have security and abandonment issues.

    My wife's sister works for Carnival... I will forward a link to your video and see what she has to say. Maybe she can help.

    Wow! That is appauling service. I used to work for a cruise compnay. We would have never pulled something like that! Granted we were a small ship with 32 passengers max... Good luck getting it all worked out. Also, you probably already know about it, but if not look into travel insurance. It can really save your hide.

    Just a quick update. I posted a message on Carnivals customer feedback forum today. I went back an hour later and my account had been deleted and my ISP is banned from creating a new account.

    Contact your local attorney general and get a lawyer.

    They've made it pretty clear that they have no intention of making things right. Sounds like it's time to force their hand.

    That's the worst customer service I've ever heard of and I've experienced some bad stuff. Sorry you have to go through all of this for something that should be a fun celebration.

    Agreed: we took two of our grandkids to AL last year with Holland America. No trouble at all, but then we were in one cabin too. The paperwork required was substantial, had to get custody papers, passports, health certificates etc, but Holland America had someone that was well versed in what we needed and we had it all together when we hit the dock to sail.

    We did take Carnival through the Panama Canal and booked an extra day in Cancun. Flight delay got us in so late the restaurant was closed and no way were we venturing out at night to eat. Got to the ship as fast as we could the next day so the extra day did us no good at all. Other than that the cruise was OK. We went with 4 other couples, 3 of us registered at the same time and got adjoining rooms the 4th reserved later and we on another deck.
    Personally we like Holland America better anyway.

    Holland American has cruises to Alabama? Wow, I mean, I am sure the state has history and interesting sites to see, but a whole cruise?


    J/K I am assuming you mean AK?
