Default Carnival Legend Europe Cruises Cancelled

An email was just sent to Carnival Legend cruisers... several of the overseas dates for next year were cancelled. I made hotel reservations in Venice last night.

It's all cruises dated 9/25/13, 10/7/13, 10/19/13, 10/31/13 & 11/12/13.

I do want to say... however... they are offering some very nice onboard credit for those of us rescheduling!! $200 per stateroom. We will still go to Europe, just earlier!

It was just a big surprise!!

Yes - they are actually leaving Europe a bit sooner - adding a 15-day Transatlantic (Dover to New York), then a "unique" 11-day Caribbean (New York to Tampa), then a 5-day Western Caribbean and then resuming the normal 7-day Western Caribbean sailings.

Considering the recent flooding in Venice with ships not being able to drop-off or pick-up passengers over the weekend, it would make a bit of sense.

I am soooo going to try to talk my husband into the May sailing now!!!

Wow - if it's a dry dock --- it is a very long one!

In that time period, the first cruise on the Carnival website is December 1st from Tampa

This is upsetting. Even though I'm not on one of these particular cruises (We are booked for May 4, 2013 Legend), I feel bad for those who have already paid airline tickets. I know our air tickets cost more than the cruise. And we've already paid for hotels pre/post cruise. The future cruise credit wouldn't be close.

Could this happen to other cruises?

We're booked on the July 27th Baltic cruise. I wonder why they'd want to cross the Atlantic during hurricane season or add additional Caribbean cruises during hurricane season? I really wonder what the reasoning is behind this decision?

Perhaps market saturation. Not a lot of interest, or when you read air fares are higher than the price of a cruise...../

Carnival is giving full refunds inclusive of Carnival's air supplement, optional land packages, vacation protection plan, and government fees and taxes, FYI.

They are also giving a $200 per person credit for change fees on airfare. These cruises were so far out that it would be highly doubtful that anyone could have booked air yet. Air for October & November 2013 was not available for us when I checked this weekend.

I am surprised but this is one of those downfalls of being an extreme advance planner.... but I'm going with the guy who said he rebooked and got credits... I'm sure we will rebook and do the same!

CupKayke,

I have you on our Roll Call for Alaska, are you still doing that cruise as well? Sorry it's off subject. We cancelled our Legend British Isles cruise and are doing Alaska now.

No. Sorry. We cancelled Alaska and stuck with Europe only. Sorry.

Anyway, who knows where we will end-up NOW... but I don't think it will be Alaska... I think it will be the Carnival Sunshine April 2013 cruise... but who knows... I'm at work... hubby's at work...and we have ten days... which seems like ten minutes when you have to research everything as much as I do first!! LOL

Decisions can be difficult when it comes to cruising, too many options. It would be nice if you joined us though.

So does this mean the Legend will still not be back in Tampa until December 2013?

From what it looks like the TA will take place on 9/25 and will be getting into NY on the 10/7. Then an 11 Nite Exotic Carib to Tampa followed by a 5 Nite and then resume normal Carib schedules. That should put the Legend back in Tampa for 10/18. All the Europe cruises from 9/25 on were cancelled and they moved the TA up to 10/7. Maybe not enough to fill the Ship especially with the Sunshine over there?

That would be wonderful because we wanted to sail her in November and was so disappointed we weren't going to be able to.

We have never sailed out of Tampa and have heard so many good things about the Legend.

Thanks for the info......keeping my fingers crossed that this schedule remains the same.

Unhappy Carnival Legend 13th Sept 2013 - British Isles

We're keeping everything crossed that they don't cancel this cruise, as its the last cruise in Europe before the TA - - and we've already booked EVERYTHING - airfares, hotels & all. I know, the moral of the story - - don't book airfares too soon, but with the cost of flights from Australia, you grab a "so called bargain" fare when you can.
I hope their scheduled plans don't include now changing this cruise - who else is cruising then? and how far are you into bookings etc??
