Cabin / Stateroom

During the entire trip when you walked toward the Aft the hallways on the 2nd level had a horrendous odor. In passing down these hallways everyone talked about the odor and how bad it smelled. Unfortunately, not only did the hallways reap of this odor but in my daughter’s cabin, this odor was magnified. It smelled like raw sewage (see attached documents of the daily and many complaints). Even people of the first and third floor complained of the odor. I guess, Instead of dumping their mess in the ocean, they are holding it on board and dumping it in the quests rooms. But what makes this situation worse it the fact that Carnival is not willing to compensate you for the fact that you can't stay in your room. They will not even offer you an upgrade in your room neither will they refund you your money. So, if you don't mind being treated like this and throwing away money, then I guess you will not mind Carnival. However, if you believe you should be valued as a customer then sail with another cruise line.
