5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 13, 2010
Ship: Carnival Inspiration
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The cruise that my wife and I booked was supposed to leave from Tsmpa @ 4:00p.m. on the 13th of December; high seas prevented the boat from gettting under a bridge to get to port. This is completetly understandable as obviously the weather can't be controlled. My wife and I drove from Oklahoma to Tampa and budgeted for a 2 night hotel stay then on the boat monday. Carnival would'nt reimburse for the additional hotel stay and would'nt apply credit to this cruise (other than a measley 15$ per person for meal credit). Instead the credit would be pro-rated and applied to a future cruise with carnival plus 20% off. What are we supposed to do with that? Food was fast food quality even the one formal we attened was baked shrimp and lobster tail, but was not "to die for." We are very displeased and would'nt recommend to anyone! STAY AWAY!!
