If a shore excursion is booked thru Carnival and it is raining at that port or we should decide not to go will our money be refunded ?

Most tours operate on a Rain or Shine basis. As for the cancellation fee, I may stand corrected on this one but I seem to remember that if you cancel 48 hours or prior, there is either a 25% or a $25 cancellation fee, if you cancel within 24 hours, you get NOTHING back! If the tour is canceled by Carnival or the tour operator, you get a full refund.

Last September, on the Conquest, in Grand Cayman, it rained like you wouldn't believe! Refunds were given.

Nancy, I can not state that it is policy, but I had my Leaning Tower of Pisa excursion greatfully refunded when I discovered that the previous day's walking tour of the Vatican had left me in P-A-I-N.

Maybe the young lady took pity on me when she saw that I could barely walk, or maybe she just liked my looks

Carnival did make it back - I got a full body massage instead.

lol MTSFP lol,
I guess praying at the Vatican didn't do much good, did it?
Aren't ya just glad you did not go to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and attempt to climb those stairs! That's one of the weirdest sensations ever, as you climb you feel yourself going up and DOWN as you maneuver around the spiral staircase! Gosh it's been ages since we were there. Anyone know if they still allow people to climb up the stairs inside the tower to the top?

when i went to nassau i took my ticket ashore but decided not to go because of the weather. when i looked at my statement on the final night they credited my account with the cost of the excursion which i thought was pretty cool.

We are leaving Saturday on the Glory for the western cruise. I cannot wait!!

We have a horseback riding excursion booked, but my friend found out yesterday she has a health condition that will prohibit her from riding a horse. At this date (2 days before sailing) what are her options? Should we wait until we got on the boat or should we try to call now and fix it? I will probably still go on the excursion, but her doctor has told her she cannot.
Thanks

On the day you board, go to the Shore Excursions desk to cancel the excursion. They will give you an onboard credit equal to the price of the excursion. (They don't do refunds). If you wait to cancel it, they may or may not charge a penalty. but they always allow people to cancel on the first day without penalty.

Thanks for the advice. We'll head that way once we board.

We're sailing on the Sensation next Thursday (Feb. 28th), heading to Nassau. We'd like to go swimming at Blackbeard's Beach, but there's a chance of thundershowers in the extended forecast. We haven't booked the excursion yet. We'll wait until Monday and check the forecast again. If the weather looks "iffy", we'll choose an excursion (bus tour maybe?) that won't be hindered by the weather. Or maybe Capt. Jack Sparrow will sail up on the Black Pearl and we'll consume mass quantities of rum Rain or shine, we're looking forward to a fun-filled weekend. Yo-Ho! Yo-Ho!
