ELATION Review 10/31-11/07 See message


Recommended Posts

I tried several times to post a very long review of this cruise for you. Each time, even when cutting it up into parts, I was told it was still too long. I gave up!


I have since posted the entire very long detailed review of this cruise in the cruise review section and they say it will be available in a day or two. If you want to read my review, kindly check there a day or two after this post appears. Thanks.

Hi. I just checked and the long review has not yet been posted in the review section. Meanwhile, I remembered something else not in the review that I think you'll be interested in.


We went to Tulum while in the port of Calica. The day before, it was raining fairly hard and we went to the excursion desk and asked if it was raining the next day, would the trip to Tulum be cancelled as it was a walking tour in open country and we didn't want to do it in the rain.


We were told that we could cancel but they would deduct 25% from what we paid. I asked if it was a thunderstorm with lightning, would they still insist the tour go on. He said yes.


We hear over and over that the safety of the passengers and crew comes first with any cruise line. I guess when money is concerned, that statement is waived.


If we cancelled without reason, they have every right to charge us a cancellation fee, but when it's the weather and could prove dangerous, we should have the right to cancel without penalty.


Just thought you'd like to know about the "rules" for ship excursions on Carnival.
