we purchased a specilaty bottle of liquor as a gift, requested specifically. We purchased the liqour, and gave it to the cruiseline to "keep" for us until the end of the cruise, per their rules. They lost the bottle - worse,delivered it to another cabin. They offered an unclaimed bottle of generic rum (one that I can buy anywhere) as a peace offering to my lost, rare rum- that I made a specific trip to purchase. I am very disappointed. They refunded my money, whcih took a hour and half for them to do - while I was waiting to disembark. In addition, there were 4 cabins with 4 teenagers in each cabin across the hall from us. There was no parental control, and they were wreaking havoc literally all night. I called security, and upon reponding, the guard was also "responding" to the teenage girls flirtatious remarks. Ive cruised carnival a dozen times before, this may just be my last.
