Paul, when I suffered through my auto accident back in July of 06, I had already paid for a cruise on the Conquest for October of that same year. I had not even thought of it afterwards for obvious reasons, I had to get my mental and physical characteristics back to wanting to survive and live again. No one else was aware of the cruise. On day 46 before my cruise, I ran across the documents and frantically called Carnival. I kept getting the automated system and I left messages for a return call. The next day, day 45 before the cruise, I tried again and this time I was able to speak to someone. I explained what happened and that I was not going to be able to experience the cruise because I was in the physical appliances and it was all I could do just to move from bed to the kitchen table. I would not be safe in a crowd of people. He said I would not be able to recoup my deposit because of the time period. I complained that I was mentally unstable before the time period and that even then I was still unstable. He understood and suggested that I send a doctor's notice and a copy of the accident report and hospital report to the Carnival offices and they should refund all my money. I did that and I still had to forfeit my deposit afterall with nothing more than an apology for having to keep my deposit. That is my unpleasant experience with complaining.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
