Review SummaryWe traveled on the Carnival Pride out of Long Beach California. We paid for a Mexican Riviera cruise and ended up sailing in circles outside of LA.
The reason was due to Hurricane Hennriette making landfall in Cabo St. Lucas. We understand that Carnival can't control the weather, but I called the night before to get an update and was told that the trip was still on as scheduled. They did not tell us until we had gotten of the bus transfer from LAX, So what were we to do. There was no time to research hotels in LA, etc. all the things that go with planning a trip. Carnival offered to reinburse our cruise and 25% off the price of our next cruise OR take the cruise, get $200. Carnvial onboard credit (which you end up giving back to them) and 25% off the next cruise. We are not sure we want to travel Carnival again.
Additionally, we never received documentation from Carnival, which meant we had no transfer tickets. The bus company was not very understanding and gave us a difficult time.
We made the best of the trip. But it was definitely not what we paid for.
Pros: Being away from home and work
Cons: The Itinerary was changed and we were notified.
