While I appreciate the 20% and have already booked my next cruise and had the 20% discount applied, it did come with a lot of restrictions.
"Not valid on cruises to Alaska, Hawaii, or Europe. Not valid for holiday embarkations. Valid with MOST fares. Valid until 10/10/2012"
Not all of the ships affected by the hurricane received the discount. Some maintained the same number of stops so had no compensation. I am pleased that Carnival stepped up with the offer as soon as the change was announced. I think that kept the casual cruisers from feeling as bad about losing the ports.
After the troubles tendering back to the ship in Grand Cayman, most people understood the necessity of getting away from the storm.
