So I guess that I am just the exception to the rule when it comes to being taken advantage of and caring about what I purchase. This is my last cruise with them. This is why our country is so bad right now because of corporate greed. Carnival won't take the hit on docking fees that they paid to dock in Catalina. Sack up Carnival and stop being greedy and take the hit and give me what I paid for a cruise to Mexico. By the way team if you want to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau here is the link Carnival has a B- My company a Radio Promotion company has an A and yes my friends in Radio will know how bad I was treated by Carnival. Maybe we can have justice when this gets on the Radio and TV and they have a look into Carnival. Sorry I'm just mad here is the link http://www.la.bbb.org/BusinessReport.aspx?CompanyID=13021905
You keep saying that you had a contract with carnival. Maybe you should read this. It is directly taken from their site under the Legal section:
Port Cancellation Policy
If Carnival Cruise Lines ("Carnival") has adequate notice prior to sailing that a vessel will deviate from the published itinerary, it will promptly -- upon making the itinerary change -- notify guests of the change through their travel agents or directly, in the case of a direct booking ("the Notice"). The Notice shall offer guests an opportunity to cancel their booking without penalty within 24 hours of the delivery of the Notice. Carnival shall not be liable to guests for any charges, fees or expenses paid or owed to third parties (such as air travel booked by a guest directly with an airline) in connection with a cancelled booking or substituted port. In the event a guest does not cancel his or her cruise on a timely basis, no additional compensation for the itinerary change will be offered to the guest at a later time.
In the event the itinerary change becomes necessary while the ship is at sea or when notice prior to sailing is not feasible, Carnival shall attempt to substitute an alternative port. Carnival shall promptly provide written notice of the itinerary change to the guests as well as announcing the change in the Carnival Capers and via the public address system. No compensation shall be provided to guests when an alternative port is offered.
If safety, scheduling or other concerns prevent the ship from calling on an alternative port, Carnival shall promptly provide written notice of the elimination of the scheduled port to the guests as well as announcing the change in the Carnival Capers and via the public address system. The written notice shall also offer a shipboard credit of $20.00 (U.S.D.) per person to be reflected on the sail and sign account.
Nothing herein shall affect the guest's ability to exercise the Vacation Guarantee on sailings where it applies.
Stop complaining. You had ample time to cancel your cruise. It's obvious Carnival notified you BEFORE you cruised.
