This Cruise was a NIGHTMARE

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

A YEAR BEFORE THE CRUISE MY FIRST GIRLFRIEND IN HIGH SCHOOL 30 YEARS AGO AND I HAD RECONNECTED. WE DECIDED TO GET MARRIED IN ST THOMAS WHERE THE CRUISE SHIP 'ALLURE OF THE SEAS' WAS HEADING ON OCTOBER 15. OUT OF OVER 6,000 PEOPLE TWO COUPLES WERE GOING TO GET MARRIED, BOTH IN ST THOMAS. WE WERE ONE OF THE COUPLES. WHEN WE LEFT THE BAHAMAS THE CAPTAIN, JOHNNY, MADE AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT PLANS HAD CHANGED BECAUSE A TROPICAL STORM COULD HIT ST THOMAS SO WE WERE GOING TO JAMAICA AND COZUMEL, WHICH HAPPENS TO BE WERE I ASK MY FIRST WIFE TO MARRY ME. NOW BESIDES HAVING AN UPSET BRIDE THAT PLANNED OUR WEDDING THE LIES BEGAN. CAPTAIN JOHNNY SAID ANY ONE THAT HAD ANYTHING PLANNED IN ST THOMAS WOULD BE COMPENSATED BY ROYAL CARIBBEAN. ON THAT CRUISE SHIP EVERY BODY THAT WORKED THERE KNEW CAPTAIN JOHNNY BUT NOT ONE OF THEM COULD PUT ME IN FRONT OF HIM. SO AFTER STANDING IN LINE AT GUEST SERVICES THEY SAID I COULD MAKE FREE PHONE CALLS.THIS AGGRAVATION CONTINUED DAY AFTER DAY WITH STANDING IN LINE. SO NOW I'M TOLD I CAN HAVE FREE INTERNET FOR THE CRUISE WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE ONE DAY; APPARENTLY I WAS CHARGED SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS AFTER THE ONE DAY. THEY WERE SMART. THEY WOULD WALK AWAY FROM THE DESK AND TELL ME LIES SO IT WOULDN'T BE DOCUMENTED. I WAS TOLD ANY THING FROM DRINKS TO THE SPA AND FOOD WOULD BE FREE. I ACTUALLY DID GET A FREE ONE NIGHT TUX RENTAL BECAUSE I WANTED HER TO WERE HER DRESS. WHEN THEY BROUGHT THE TUX THEY FORGOT THE SHOES AND SOCKS.THEY HAD RUN OUT OF SOCKS SO I HAD TO BUY A PACK. I FOUND OUT ON THAT CRUISE THAT THE FEW CREW MEMBERS THAT DID CARE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING TO HELP. I THINK THERE ARE CAMERAS LOOKING AT ALL OF THEM. YOU WOULD THINK A MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY LIKE ROYAL CARIBBEAN WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING!!!!! DO YOU THINK IT WOULD HAVE HURT THEIR PROFITS TO HAVE COMPENSATED US FOR THAT CRUISE? THEY LIED TO ME OVER AND OVER. NOW I HAVE A BILL FOR MORE THAN WHAT THE CRUISE COST! ROYAL CARIBBEAN MAKES YOU THINK THEY'RE GOING TO GIVE YOU THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE, IN REALITY ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY
