One cannot, of course, control the weather and sea. But the cruise line can decide the ocean is simply too rough to proceed on schedule. Such was the case with our trip. Out cabin was near the bow and on the 11th floor. It was uninhabitable for sleeping as the pitch and roll were violent. No apologies, compensation or even acknowledgment of the issue was mentioned by Carnival. The beach excursions were pushed even when the wind was gusting to 50 mph. Thanks goodness we got the weather report and did not waste even more money. I have been on a cruise before and have never seen so many people so very sick and so very ready to get to dry land. I know to count my blessings, but to be charged this kind of money for such an unpleasant trip is an outrage.
