Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Our entire family had a Thanksgiving cruise planned for months and the day before the cruise, Carnival called us while we were at our layover in the airport the day before the cruise and changed our itinerary from going to Jamaica and the Grand Cayman Islands to the Bahamas and they only gave us a $50 credit due to this! We left from Miami and we went to the Bahamas which was only a couple of hundred miles away so we didn't :"cruise" much at all. The $50 was a slap in the face for the major change and no one at Carnival was helpful at all! Do not travel with Carnival!

Pros: I went with many family member who had never cruised.

Cons: Carnival changed the itinerary dramatically the day before we left on the cruise.
