I have tried to speak with Gerry Cahill, the ceo of Carnival and have been given nothing but the runaround
Did you honestly expect to get the CEO of a major corporation on the phone - especially if you sounded particularly p'ed off? Perhaps a well written, professional letter will draw his attention to your cause and he will intercede on your behalf.
I think the rule is probably put in place to prevent speculating on sales. Also, any more Homeland Security must approve the passenger list, so making changes is even more difficult.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
