Carnival Cancelled my Booking for being 3 days Late and having to pay extra $600

Anybody had this happen and any advise to in getting a refund or on board credit, at least? Booked through expedia who sent me reminder emails but they got lost in my hundreds. No call, no letter, no email or any contact from Carnival directly which seems a bit off. A 2 minute phone call would've resolved the situation but instead they auto cancel me and I have to re-book at extra $600 or lose my $600 deposit. Strange the $600 extra ticket price is the same amount as the deposit huh? Very unfair...speaking the "supervisers" at both Carnival and Expedia I am left thinking I will have to dispute the original $600 deposit via my credit card company on grounds of a completely unethical business practice. They didn't even offer an upgrade or credit of any sort whatsoever. Great service from the fun ships.

Dude .. I sure do not work for Carnival nor have I ever sailed on Carnival ... however in this case you are wrong ... dead wrong ... Every cruise line would have responded the same and I would back them on it ... so put on your big boy panties and just say yep I screwed up and it cost me. Life is all about learning and you just had a great experience.

That sucks

Well said. Happy

Going to shut this 2+ year old thread down as it's devolved to name calling and hostility.
