Review by sarahjocochran

Dissapointed :(

In response to review, BonMike says ...

It's too bad that you were disappointed in so many ways. The crew have several thousand pieces of luggage to deliver and it takes hours to do that.‚ You can‚ look at the deck plans to choose your‚ room, unless you‚ chose the option to have Carnival select your room. Why would you expect compensation for missing a port? The cruise contract states that itineraries can change. Didn't get the Dining option you wanted? There are limited seats in the MDR so not everyone can be seated. Booking early and doing online check in early will help assure you get your choice of time. It looks like you were disappointed because you had chosen to spend so much money on optional things on the ship.‚ 

Perhaps an all inclusive resort will be better for you.

The selection of your cabin is most important when booking a cruise.‚  You need to take the time using a deck plan on your computer, or use the free services of a travel agent to see what will be next to you, above you and below you.‚  Never book adjacent to a bar or other public area.‚  Avoid rooms above, or below the theater, kitchen or lounges.‚ ‚

It is always disappointing not to get the dining option that you wanted.‚  It has happened to me, too.‚  As for late delivery of luggage, someone had to be late but next time, I'll bet you get it sooner.‚  At least it didn't get lost.‚  I am sure that you will be happier on your next cruise.

‚ 

as fopr food, remember that cruise ships have to serve many passengers at the same time at each seating.‚  Personally I think that they do a great job.‚ ‚  I really don't expect better food on a crise ship than i get in a good restaurant locally.

Let's hope that your next cruise is a better one for you.‚

The three previous reviews has a much more favorable review than your review and it was for the same cruise.

I recently sailed on the Sunshine, and I found the crew to be nothing but friendly.

Thank you for your comments. Lessons learned for sure. Most importantly, I will not take a "last minute cruise deal" as an actual deal. The rooms left are most likely the least desirable and the things that I enjoy will most likely be sold out or no longer available (dinner times, faster to the fun & excursions...). Although I did book through a travel agent, I will also do my own research to ensure I'm happy with my cabin before booking.... Thanks again for the comments.
