Yup - my 2 friends and I were originally booked on this cruise - RCCL hasn't even notified the one person in our group who booked through RCCL that she won't be going! Tsk tsk, RCCL - converting to a charter is one thing - but not making sure the affected passengers are aware first - well, that's just not good PR. I know, RCCL won't be losing anything when we don't rebook with them - BUT - people would certainly feel better if they thought you valued them!
Just my 2 cents about the realities of cruising.
Ivanna Cruz somewhere on December 9th - so I'm headed on over to see what the other lines have that week.
This cruise is 7 months away. I too am booked on this cruise but, will wait till the end of June to see what they have to offer us. The special Huge has is for the month of May. They have to have their fees paid by the end of June. Huge is giving away inside rooms (and window rooms?). Here's hoping that they will up grade us to a balconey or junior suite at that time.
It is only a 4 night cruise!! My daughter knows someone who planned for a year for a 10 or 12 night Carnival cruise in Europe last month. The cruise was cancelled 1 or 2 weeks before departure. Now that is something to be upset about.
You will probably agree that the itinerary for this cruise is better than some of the other short cruises. Check out your other options but, I wouldn't jump ship too soon.
1 Holland America
4 Carnival Cruises
17 Royal Caribbean Cruises
