October 2014 - Carnival Inspiration to Mexico
The Inspiration has no heat aboard. I was told by one of the crew members that it was built for the Caribbean run only. My wife & I both were ill after the first night.
I have registered a complaint with Carnival about the unprofessional treatment that I received on Oct. 8th, when I went to the medical department aboard. Upon entering this facility, I was greeted by a nurse (no insignia), and Dr. Johnson popped his head into the foyer. I told him that I didn't know what my problems were, I'm 85 and had never experienced the extensive aura, the weakness, and the light-headedness before. He immediately disappeared without being told what my problems were, and during the preliminaries (temp, blood pressure & completion of the standard type sheet listing ailments) I asked the nurse when the MD was coming to examine me. She replied that he had to attend a meeting, and she didn't know when he'd be back!! She said that she'd call him for his recommendations, he told her to administer an I.V., which I refused.
I took migraine tabs, which eliminated the aura; and drank water & other liquids. and felt better.
During the P.M. of the 8th, the med. staff called and said that Johnson would examine me at 3 PM.
I refused, but I'd filed a grievance against him with the ship's office at around noon.
