I'd probably still be willing to go for it. I live in Florida, and am used to hot, humid, sticky weather in the summer. (Yes, my house has A/C, but I happily work in the yard and mow my lawn in the heat and humidity).
Besides, at sea, there's always a breeze.

I would go as long as I had a balcony cabin. We live in Houston and it can't get much worse than that.

Thumbs down No Way!

No Way! I live in Baltimore where the three H's are our norm (hazy, hot and humid). It's one thing to have a balcony room with the door open but what about the public areas, i.e., dining. Thanks, but no.

Default Cruise with no air?

We live in Florida and would never consider a cruise without air. On westbound trans-Atlantics in the fall we are always on the starboard side - the shady side, and carry a couple of small 5" fans that can run on batteries when needed with us.

NO! I don't tolerate heat well at all. I have enough problems even when the ship's AC is working properly that after our two tries on warm weather cruises, we plan to stick to cooler climates on future cruises.

Absolutely not. I don't tolerate heat well and can't sleep in a hot and stuffy room.

We normally have an inside or obstructed outside. It will probably be extremely uncomfortable without a/c. No thank you!

QUOTE:"In addition to not sweltering in their cabins, passengers will get a full refund and a 50 percent discount on a future cruise. MSC Brazil is assisting passengers with their travel needs and providing overnight accommodations."

Given the choice of sailing in misery or a full refund, half-off next time and being helped to get home, we'd choose to cancel.

We were on the Rotterdam in January 2010 for her Hawaii/French Polynesia cruise. After 4 days at sea, we arrived in Hawaii and also lost a/c in our cabin. (Many other people also lost their a/c.) We spent 19 days in an uncomfortable cabin, and as we were continuing southward after Hawaii, it only got more unbearable. The front desk gave us one of 9 tower fans that were onboard. It helped slightly. I was unable to dry my hair with a blow dryer since it heated up the room too much. After 19 days, the Guest Relations Manager was able to switch our cabin to one which had a/c.

To answer the question:

No! We would never knowingly consider taking a warm weather cruise in a cabin that had no a/c.

There is no way I would take a cruise without air-conditioning.

I usually book an inside room so no way I would go without AC. Being in any inside area would be too hot can, you imagine waiting on the buffet line with no AC?
