Red face no power . . no compensation

Now this is a real power horror story we will never forget! A few summers ago we drove 10 hours, with two small childrwn to Canada to visit Niagra Falls. It was my first and only trip. Just as we arrived all power was lost.
* No traffic lights= mass confusion
* No computers in hotel=two rooms on different floors
* Restaurants couldn't prepare food

OK, that did it.

Chris, it was a Sony Vaio, but a Toshiba or IBM thinkpad will do.

No, sorry if what I wrote was confusing. Carnival did refund what we paid for the original excursion we booked thru them (a ferry boat tour thru the canal which quite frankly was one of the main reasons we booked this particular cruise). However we were then left to scramble and book something else along with the several hundred others trying to do the same (since there are very limited independent options in Panama). Quite frankly it was mass confusion with everyone trying to get their refund and rebook something else in a very short timeframe - with a huge line wrapped around the lobby.

My beef is they were not orgainzed in how they handled this and after already missing one port, should have provided some discount on an alternative tour to those who booked the canal trip that was cancelled (especially since for many people this was to be a cruise highlight). In the end, we ended up paying $89 each for a very overpriced bus 1hr 45 minute bus trip from Colon to Panama City for a city tour and then back again. And to make matters worse, the local lunch at a restaurant that was supposed to be part of this was changed due to time - to poor excuse for a box lunch. the only saving grace was a stop at the Gatun locks on the way back to see part of the canal. However, if Carnival had seen fit to charge say half price for this excursion for those who's canal trip was cancelled, I would feel less taken and better about the whole affair

I don't know what posts were deleted from this thread that I see folks alluding to, but I certainly wouldn't expect a refund for the cruise itself - but after missing one port (Costa Maya) and giving a measly $25 for that, to not do anything else for those who missed their big excursion in Panama was poor form IMO on Carnival's part

BTW - I should note that this was our 7th or 8th cruise and we cruise as a means to an end. For us, the ports are the destination, not the ship. So screwing up 2 of 3 ports on an 8 day cruise is disconcerting. I understand for others the ship is the destination and they really are not bothered of ports are missed or excursions cancelled. I can respect their position and hopefully they can respect mine - as everyone has different desires

OK, I've been all day & missed all the posts. I'm sorry if it sounded like I would panic.After raising my kids (they were real rough & tumble accident prone kinda kids), for the past 32 years, I don't panic about anything anymore. Actually I was just joking around on my post.

Well, at least you have a spouse to have make-up s*x with! I just have to find random people at bars to fight with and then....nevermind.

And if all else fails I can counter offer! NY is a 14 hour drive from Crystal Lake!!! Gosh, I hope your wife does not read this board. I don't want another cyberfight!!!

Unhappy

In February of '03, the Holiday had a total power loss. It was explained later in a compensation letter we recieved that a sensor which monitors explosive gases in the engine rooms malfunctioned and shut down every power source on the ship. We were told that there was never any danger, but that it was fortunate that the bad sensor was discovered, because of what COULD have happened if there HAD been a build up of gasses. The bad part was that we were sailing down the Mississippi River at the time and drifted into a mud bank. After the power was restored (about 20 minutes) the ship managed to pull itself out of the mud, but we had to wait 10 hours for the USCG and Lloyds to come pronounce the ship as seaworthy. A WHOLE lot more went wrong on this cruise, but it was still a great time!!

Default Good Cruise Bad Cruis Okay Cruise.

Okay, I was on this cruise. Missed Costa Mya. This was bad we really wanted to go there. $25 for missing it, okay i can deal with it. Still wasnt happy. 4 Days on Board ready to get off ship. Now if we missed a day stop why didnt we get to Costa Rica sooner? hmm, front desk said they have to book the time there. Costa Rica Harbor Master said we need the boats and had none in and we could have docked and spent the night there but that carnival didnt want to spend the extra money to dock for another day. Dont know how true that is but hey, sounded good to me and he had no reason to lie. Charlie Soto rocked. great tour. Now Power outage, Well I had an inside room,Like the dark. Wife slept through most until the room got too hot. Went up to Lido deck where it was cooler, talked to some really cool people and had a nice time, Some things to note. Left side engine never came back on line, ever notice the shaking onboard after the power outage, 1 engine pushing the boat harder. I asked several crew members and thats what i got told. with only 1 engine it had to work hard to push us along to get back in time. We were on the 8th fllor and could smell a stong order comming from the elevators. did not smell smoke or fire but something smelled strong. oil or fuel like. If anyone looked up at the smoke stack the left side never put out as much as the right side after the power outage. My favorite was CD telling everyone that everything is okay while all you can hear is alarms sounding behind him. I got a kick out of that. This was not the best cruise i have been on or the worse. I think this ship rocked alot and did not cruise a smooth as others i have been on. Also i did find some staff RUDE, if i dont order a drink during dinner cause i dont drink dont roll your eyes at me! My wife did take a slip and fall around the pool area cause of all the water splshing out of the pool. BTW I did read that the back pool was adult only. I have kids and if I want to see them and play with them i would have brought them with me. I didnt like this. Food on this ship was very good Harry's was great. except for the loud party that was sitting next to us, also isnt Harry's formal? Well I said my Bit, I hope I dont get flamed too much. All in all Carni did a OKAY job.

The Holiday has lots of history. Has also run aground in Cozumel.

Once they turned the water off the whole freakin day in Cozumel to fix something. And then the crap that came out of the faucet and shower when they finally turned it back on. Not a chance I'll drink that.

The Poop Name List
LMAO

This thread has be a source of entertainment for my tonight (and I still haven't made it to the end). There were posts about every conceivable thing and I'm thourougly confused. From what I gather the power was off for 2 1/2 hours and someone couldn't go pee and got all jazzy. Someone out there is looking for their ******. May I suggest Versed, it's a wonderful little drug that makes you forget everything. Maybe the poster that didn't want to be related to Aunty Pam anymore could take some too and forget about their little spat.Then comes the poop list and tears are popping out of my eyes cuz I'm laughing so much. The DH thinks I've gone crazy (maybe I have ). OK I guess since I've stopped laughing I can go back and finish reading.
