August 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas
Nightmare on the seas
My trip was for 22nd August. At 11pm I was contacted the night before to be told instead of going to the 6 islands I had carefully planned i.e. Antigua, St Lucia, St Martens, Barbados and St Kitts, we were going to 3 islands, St Thomas, Aruba and Bonair. This was due to Hurricane Danny hitting those islands which turned out to be less dangerous than they first thought. My problem with this is firstly, weather forecasts are mapped out weeks in advance surely they could have let us known sooner with the option to cancel and get our money back? Secondly, the hurricane was downgraded why couldn't we resume the original schedule? Lastly, it was my birthday and I was meant to be meeting friends and family in Antigua And St Lucia and I came with gifts and items to give to them. At a huge cost to myself I had to ship it to them.
The excursion trips I had planned were non-existent(original trip) I was told I would not get the money back but it would be used as onboard credit i.e. forced to spend it on the ship which I was angry about.
Overall a 50th birthday trip that turned out to be dissapointing.
