Received a call last night from Carnival to tell me that my booking on the 7th June cruise has been cancelled due to contactors coming on board. I was in an aft wrap so they really look after the workers!!

Maybe they need to figure out the list problem, or finish tucking the wires up into the ceiling, or take the bio hazard bags off the urinals, or replace the plywood with real decking material at the tops of some of the stairways.


Hope they compensated you appropriately, including airfare.

They will refund cruise, airfare & pre/post cruise hotels plus a free future cruise.

Just to confirm... are they just cancelling certain cabins or the entire sailing?

So sorry to hear that, knowing how much we all look forward to our cruises. Is the whole cruise cancelled or just a selection of rooms?

Im surprised they are cancelling expensive Aft balconies instead of the guarenteed inside rooms that were booked for like ~$500 during the Friends and Family sale.

Wow, that is a pretty good deal. But I understand the disappointment of the cancelled cruise. Hopefully you get on another cruise soon.

If they got a refund for their current cancelled cruise, I would think they can spend it on another cruise...regardless of the line.
