It's to the cruise line's advantage to act like all is well ...I disagree that they have millions invested in the Caribbean ... the destinations are on their own ...
For a few days I was calling Carnival about ports being open and ports being closed and even though there is damage at most of them on our itinerary, Grand Turk was the one they were waiting on due to the amount of damage. They made the call and canceled the port for the cruise. With all the cruises still sailing, they were unable to find a port open for another ship to port making it a sea day. For as much as I bash Carnival for their nickel and dime policies, I didn't find any fault with them waiting on the last minute to cancel the port.
I know I about to throw a stick at a honest nest, but I do not listen to the main street media and all their gloom and doom.
