Default I'M FREAKIN' PISSED!

okay, so my mom and I booked a cruise back in December. it was on the Carnival Glory and was supposed to be on June 13th going to Costa Maya and Cozumel Mexico, Belize, and Nassau.

yesterday my mom called me downstairs to tell me something..... our cruise got effed up!

due to the swine flu they changed all of the ports (and my whole family really wanted to go to all of em!) and they changed em to little crappy islands that we REALLY dont wanna go to... therefore, my mom ended up canceling the cruise and now we're trying to find another cruise but damn, the cruise we had booked for MONTHS took so long to book and it was so PERFECT to us and now ahh we have to do it all over again.

i've been so freakin excited for june 13th that i've been counting down every single day.. "only 39 more days!" is what i was saying just 2 days ago and now blahh

we looked up other cruises and their ports last night but none of them appealed to us and the ones that did, we cant go on cause of my parents jobs, my bro coming home for the first time in months, and me with my summer job.

sorry if im just ranting and if i seem like a spoiled brat but i just really wanted this cruise!!!!!!!![/b]

thats too bad!
i know exactly how you feel. we had a 12 night cruise booked, i had already been talking to people, and i was sooo excited. we had to cancel a few months before the cruise. however, the cruise we ended up going on instead turned out to be the best cruise of my life!! everything worked out for the better.

hang in there & keep us updated on finding another cruise!

Don't worry about it. Cruises do get screwed over sometimes. I almost had a cruise canceled when the dumbasses in the bridge didn't ballast the ship properly for a turn, and thus tipped the ship over almost 30 degrees, on its way back from its previous cruise about 2 days before mine (Crown Princess' inaugural season).

At least you don't have swine flu almost in your backyard. I think my city (New York City) has the highest number of cases outside of Mexico.

I have had itineraries changed before (for better and for worse) I once had a 7 day become a 9 day cruise (whilst onboard) and I have also had a Western Caribbean cruise become a Bahamas cruise (which sucked). Itineraries change according to circumstance, sometimes for better, other times for worse. I guess it just falls on luck. I'm sure you'll find a great cruise though

I hope you will find a new cruise. That really sucks that they had to ruin the perfect itinerary. I am sure a lot of other people are upset.

Rebecca, too bad you had to cancel that cruise it would have been cool to meet you on it but you didn't miss much, I'm sure your Carnival cruise was better lol

I've looked at your itinerary and assuming it is the one showing on their website, its a really good itinerary. Grand Turk is by far my favorite island of any. Its absolutely gorgeous, a max of 2 ships can anchor at any given time, they have a flowrider on the beach, the margaritaville is the largest of any in the caribbean, and it has the best snorkeling and diving i've ever experienced. Grand Cayman and Ochos Rios would have been on your original itinerary anyway and it seems like the only port you lost was Cozumel and/or Puerto Rico.

I'd try and get it moved. Thanksgiving is really crappy as far as teens are concerned.

I was on the Navigator in 2007 for Thanksgiving and there were 300+ kids. There were lots and lots of teens to the point where I didn't even recognize the majority of the people from night to night.
