  1. Thank you for the review! I am sailing on the Miracle for my first cruise, solo, as a birthday present to myself, on July 7th. I don't have a cabin as fancy as yours, but I did get a balcony with an unobstructed view and I am so excited about it. Your review has added to the excitement, so again, thank you!!
  2. I think YOU need to re-read the original post. She was bringing up an issue and was wanting opinions. You have been nothing but rude and disrespectful to numerous people. She brought it to the cruise line's attention. I agree with the others, NOT YOU, that this should not be ignored. Someone was making a mistake and her complaint was the response she received when she brought it to their attention. it was careless and showed a lack of respect. 21 drinks. That's not minor. Re-read the posts and stop being rude to people offering their opinions. You are no better than anyone else and neither are your opinions. They're in fact, worth just as much as mine!
  3. While I disagree with what Carnival and others have been doing, please don't dismiss someone else's disappointment at losing their cruise. My very first cruise is scheduled for July 7th this year on Carnival. I'm going on a solo cruise for my 50th birthday. I've already had 2 other trips for this birthday cancelled and I had no control over it. So I am really looking forward to this cruise. So please don't judge others for their feelings. We are entitled to feeling angry and disappointed and shouldn't have to hear anyone telling us to get over it. (No that's not what you said, it was implied.) Not all of us can just go grab another cruise or vacation.
  4. I haven't read all the way through the thread yet but I'm guessing Carnival would only be responsible for the cruise itself and anything booked through them. Airfare, accommodations, etc. booked outside would not fall under their responsibility.
  5. I know this post is a year old but I still had to reply. I've loved your comments and am SOOOO jealous! i hope you are having a wonderful time being 100% selfish!!! (I'm preparing for my first cruise ever for my 50th birthday and I'm going solo. I've learned over the past 50 years that no matter how much they may try, leaving your happiness in someone else's hands is asking for disappointment. I'm doing this for me and I don't care what anyone else thinks! 🙂
  6. I'm going on my first cruise ever on July 7th (for my 50th birthday) and I'm excited about going solo! I've tried making birthday plans with friends and others and to be honest, they always let me down so this year I took it into my own hands and decided on a 7 day cruise. I'm beyond excited. I've traveled (non-cruises) to Mexico and the UK and have friends I met there that I still keep in contact with so I'm not worried about being "lonely." I can't wait to do whatever I want whenever I want and not worry about pleasing someone else.
  7. I'm preparing to go on my first cruise in July. From what I"m seeing some cruise lines allow extension cords and some don't. I have a CPAP machine but since I'll be solo not sure I'm going to take it but I want to make sure I have enough outlets for blow dryer, curling iron, phone charger, etc. I have a PowerJC converter purchased for my trip to the UK last year and it works as a power strip here at home when needed. Is this allowed? I'm going on Carnival. Some of the ideas are great and I appreciate them. I've started my "to be packed" list. Not sure what I'd need gaffer's tape for but great idea for someone needing it !!
