    Cool Cruiser

  2. In view of the incredible number of complaints posted today about hating Carnival and "never going to cruise them again", I think we need a touch of positive....so.....feel free to add what you wish. On 66 cruises, I've always received every OBC, every upgrade has been a real upgrade to a better cabin. I've never, ever received a bad meal....and I LOVE the new Flatiron steak on the menu.....medium rare, thanks. Chocolate melting cake has never disappointed me. On Early Saver, I've always received the lower price when the price on my cabin, in my category has gone down. Anytime a port has been missed, it's been for a valid reason...usually weather or sea conditions.....and I've always received 20.00 (used to be 25.00) credit on my shipboard account for port fees. I've always received excellent service from Guest Services onboard; found them friendly and helpful. My cabin has always been spit-spot clean....and kept that way by an attentive and friendly steward. On the phone or by email, I've always received a prompt response, answers to my questions and friendly conversation. The dining room waitstaff has always been awsome.....and I love the table dancers.... I especially love "Mr. V, the Maitre'd" on Triumph who actually dances with them....and is a pretty good table dancer himself. Feel free to add your own...........
  3. [B]UPDATE, 2:40 PM ET:[/B] USA TODAY has learned Carnival Corp. Chairman and CEO Micky Arison soon will release a statement saying the company has "no plans" for now to bring back fuel surcharges. "At the time we suspended fuel supplements for our six North American brands, we reserved the right to reinstate them if the price of light sweet crude oil, according to the NYMEX, should increase above $70 per barrel," Arison's statement will read. "While we have now exceeded that threshold, in light of the economic crisis and resulting consumer weakness, we presently have no plans to institute a fuel supplement. We will continue to monitor the situation in the markets and review our position as the situation warrants."
