yeah, i just got back. Our ports of call were not affected at all (beautiful weather for all of them, in fact) but saturday and sunday the ship was really rocking, bad enough to put motion sickness bags on the boat. We ended up being 17 hours late.
Just got off the ship 2 days ago. The cruise was great and the ship was very nice. It was when the captain decided to follow hurricane Dennis in the trouble began. We had very rough seas for 2 nights. It waS so bad that you could hardly stay in your bed. If you were lucky to stay in bed you did not get much sleep. The doors were sliding and banging all night. We understood it was a hurricane and little the cruise lines can do about weather. The problem was coming in to port. I guess they closed the port and we were told to be out of room by noon. Then they changed it to 4:00 then to 7:00 and finally 9pm. I felt so sorry for the family's traveling with young children and older people. We were left standing for several hours waitinig to get off the ship. They finally dumped us off at 2 in the morning. What a sad reflection on Carnival. They pu the new group on 3AM WHAT A JOKE. It would have been so much better to leave everyone on let them go to bed put, the other group up in hotels and let them get on in the morning. They had already lost a day and everyone on out ship had missed their flights. It was no use to get a hotel at 2 in the morning and have to be at the airport by 6 am fo stand bye. SHAME ON CARNIVAL FOR DUMPING PEOPLE LIKE THAT.
