  1. Here is a link to the Carnival Ticket Contract in effect on MY cruise: Carnival Ticket Contract 6.CANCELLATION BY GUEST, REFUNDS established that for MY booking, the day on which I cancelled provides for a 100% refund. (91 days or more before Sail Date for a 6 day or more itinerary) WRITTEN letter from Carnival to me dated 03/22/2020, lists NO PENALTY applied and states: "A refund of the government fees and taxes will be processed to the original form of payment within 10-14 business days." I STILL have not received that refund. That written document constitutes a "written and app
  2. You bet I'm still ticked off, as every single CCL customer who has been made to wait to get their money back IN VIOLATION of a LEGAL CONTRACT. Had Carnival refunded my money in the time frame THEY quoted on the written cancellation confirmation THEY provided, I would not have been deprived of the deferred interest terms on the $1532.90. For me, that means a loss of several hundred dollars that is UNRECOVERABLE. For a small businessman who is 1) trying to stay alive financially, and 2) trying to put food on the table, several hundred dollars is significant. Would YOU voluntarily set 3
  3. 1) Booked on March 7th, 2019 - Paid $718.00 for Vacation protection, Prepaid Gratuities, deposit. MASTERCARD (Citi) 2) Paid entire remaining balance on June 30th 2019 = $1532.90 VISA (Synchrony Financial/PayPal) 3) Cancelled March 22nd, 2020 - IAW Contract, prior to 90 days before sailing date, I am entitled to a 100% refund back to original forms of payment. 4) Received a Cancellation Confirmation stating that I would receive FULL refunds within 10-14 business days. On MAY 10, 2020, I FINALLY received a refund of the $1532.90 on Synchrony/PayPal credit
  4. I surely hope so, but I see no evidence to point at any consistent policy in the matter. It would seem to me that a consistent policy AND proper communication from the company to those affected would be the prudent pathway to NOT losing customers. Apparently, CCL does not see it that way.
  5. Arbitration clauses contained in boiler plate contracts are routinely set aside by courts as precedent dictates that boiler plate contracts are to be interpreted in favor of the party that did NOT draft the contract. I have never sued anyone in my life, though I have had valid causes of action to do so. But I am making an exception here, because Carnival's conduct in the matter is IMO particularly egregious. And @jennas_mum.... I saw your response before it was deleted. You have completely missed the point.
  6. Until the lawsuits start hitting the courts.... <wink>
  7. Clearly they aren't.... Frankly, I see no rhyme or reason to the pattern.
  8. IMO, refunding by sail date is inherently unfair. Legally, the refunds should be made according to FIFO... First IN, First OUT.... Refund in order of the date the monies were transmitted to Carnival's "care"... the money should have been maintained in escrow to begin with. ESPECIALLY for a company using accrual based accounting which generally ALL corporations are required to utilize.
  9. Man, I surely hope it is not by cruise date.... My sail date was 25 October 2020.... That is a LONG time to wait.
  10. Ever been a CFO of a large corporation trying to secure financing when your common stock was under attack by short raiders? Me either, but I've owned stock in two such companies. ONE of them beat the shorts and crushed the attack because they had guts and a metric crap tonne of cash BEFORE the attack. The second company. not so much. Their stock went under $5.00; they got delisted; financing dried up, and they wound up being purchased out of bankruptcy. THOUSANDS got screwed.... About the only folks made whole were the bond holders first in line. Trust me, the stock price CAN and
  11. My experience, as well as that of many others, does not tend to support your assertion.
