Hey, full compensation, travel and a free cruise! I wouldn't be complaining, but of course there will those that will! I'm just glad nobody was hurt and they had the fire under control!You took the words right out of my mouth Fire Monkey!!
OMG...just saw a pic of the helicopters bring SPAM to eat on the splendor. Thats really badSpam? Why are the passengers being punished?
We cruised last Nov on Paradise - food was blah. I was thinkingThe passengers on the Splendor have it much worse. They are getting Spam.
of the folks on the Splendor and had a brief giggle at the fact
that they're faced with the same quality of food that was served
to us on the Paradise. Cold and blah.
And I don't see how they're able to serve liquor, you have to swipeCharges can be handled manually with paper. They do this all the time when they set up temporary tables outside with sale items.
the card for that and I'm sure most of the generated power is going
to be spent on working the water pumps (filtration system) and
lights and emergency steering equipment. I hope...
It looks like Splendor won't sail til at least 28Nov.I am also planned on the Nov-21st cruise and wonder where you got that information?
You could talk with Carnival about changing to a Caribbean ship. The Dream out of Port Canaveral leaves on 20Nov. There are several other 7day cruises available in your range. I'd give it a shot anyway. It looks like Splendor won't sail til at least 28Nov.I'd be happy just about anywhere, but yes, cost of airfare at this late in the game prohibits us from going to the East Coast. Where are you hearing that she won't sail until the 28th?
Since you already have the time planned, a reroute of planes could be the only factor, unless you are set on a West coast trip.
Hey, full compensation, travel and a free cruise! I wouldn't be complaining, but of course there will those that will! I'm just glad nobody was hurt and they had the fire under control!I totally agree I would have been ok with being on that cruise, and get a free one
