Definitely a thumbs up to Carnival and thumbs down to RCI. Carnival knew that there was nothing they could do but leave San Juan when told they had to and that unfortunately many passengers had not yet arrived and so they really stood up to help their customers. Them requiring the passengers to have passports was something that really they had to do as they knew there would be problems without when returning to San Juan for those people.
RCI also knew there was nothing they could do but leave post when told and they sure did not care about their customers.
