bgmtrans Posted September 7, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 7, 2006 I am in dire need of some good advice from my fellow CC members.. I have a big decision to make in a big hurry. We had a cruise originally booked on Carnival Valor for this past April.We had to change the date to December .For reasons that are too lengthy to go into in detail ,except to say that our TA made a very big mistake ,we lost our deposit for the first cruise.We contacted Research at Carnival immediately and were advised to write a letter and explain our situation.We did we were denied any compensation. We followed this up for months and months. we were getting nowhere fast and finally decided to book an alternate cruise with RCI - who is our favorite line anyway but had thought we might give Carnival a try this time we went through alot of trouble and many questions on the board *thank you Bonnie Voyager* and finally ended up with our drem cabin corner aft balcony 7688. So we were happy now. I was getting ready to cancel our Valor cruise and decided to call research one last time to make sure there was no further update .This time I am put through to the supervisor . The supervisor at Carnival re evaluates our case and decides to honor our request of a full credit of our deposit to be applied to our DEC cruise.This is four days before our final payment is due. Now we have to decide ..Navigator or Valor? It will in the end cost us $1175 more to go on the Navigator... I am torn here .My kids are really looking forward to the Navigator -great ship , great activities and the great cabins(my oldest daughter has her own cabin)...but on the other hand Carnival has been nice enough to offer us a full credit of our lost money , even though it did take 6 months to get it. Plus Valor goes to places we have never been before.. Any advice will be greatly appreciated..especially from anyone who has been on both Is the Navigator really worth $1175 more than the Valor?
