Default Craziness with Carnival

I had booked two cabins on the Feb 10, 2013 on the Carnival Valor. I got a call from my travel agent on Friday telling me that Carnival has canceled the cruise as they were moving the Valor from Miami to a different port. I have a feeling that the move was due to needing another ship in Europe. It has been very frustrating but I am Very glad that I am using a travel agent. We are re-booking on the Liberty.

Has anyone experience this?

Looks like they are rotating Valor down to San Juan. I don't know if Carnival will be in the European market in February.

Glad you landed on your feet on Liberty.

This actually happens quite often, especially to people who book a year or more in advance. Ships will be repositioned or a private group will charter the entire ship and those already booked have their cruises canceled.

Depending on how close to the sail date your are you may get some additional compensation other than just your deposit returned. If it's a year or so off you usually don't get anything else.

I'm glad you were able to find another cruise that meets your needs. I'll be on Liberty this weekend and we'll try to leave it intact for you.

Take care,

I agree 100% with Mike. The further out you book, the more likely you'll get "bumped" from your ship. Frankly, I think you "done good" anyway. (That's the way we say it in the South!) In my opinion, "Liberty" is a better ship than "Valor". Just my opinion....

I have never been on Valor but have been on Liberty twice. Nice ship and she has had the upgrades to 2.0. Wishing you a fantastic cruise on Liberty.
