Nothing has happened. These are the rules for these special two day cruises and the rules are published and given to the TA's who's job it is to pass this information on to you before you book. You are angry at the wrong person. My suggestion is to learn as much about your cruise as possible before booking. This can be done of course by coming to this website and asking questions of both the staff and all the fine people that come here and are willing to share information and knowledge. This also helps insure that you end up with a knowledgabe TA that will tell you information that you need to know to make sound decisions. The 'rules' are special and differant for these 2 day cruises to nowhere. Also, it isn't just Carnival, if you check you will see that other lines also have differant rules for these type of cruises.
