But they saved money on their vacation choosing Carnival instead of one of the more expensive lines.

Cruise is nice you have to really do you homework though and you don't always get what you pay for but you always have to pay for what you get.

If you are looking for an adult experience you really have to be careful about the words family friendly.

Carnival needs to make a better offer if they intend to avoid lawsuits with huge settlements.

Start with $5,000 cash offers and be prepared to go as high as $20,000 for outlay of some $2-million to $8-million.

A class action lawsuit could cost them a half-billion dollars.

Of course those who sign off on $500, plus refund, plus future discount on cruises are stuck with that settlement.

There is no reason why a quarter-billion-dollars should be going to a handful of lawyers when Carnival can do the right thing and handle this in-house in a fair way.

Years ago i was told by folks that cruise often, that Royal Caribbean was the best, they thought...don't know if things have changed since then? I've only been oneday cruises, Sea Escape to Bahamas and back and a Rhine cruise in Germany.....

We have been on many cruises, all with Princess. We never had a cruise that was bad through this line. Some have been better than others but, that will be the case with any cruise line.
During our time at sea, we have talked with many people that have been on numerous cruises that consisted of different destinations and days at sea. We have heard most people say that Norwegian, Holland American, Princess, and a few others are good.
When the topic of Carnival comes up.........almost all have said that this line was the "bottom of the barrel" for cruising with.

When you get to page 5, be sure to read about the elderly couple's scooter that Carnival basically stole. They refused to help them get it off the ship. It weighed 68 pounds, and wouldn't let their son come right back on the ship to get it!! Cost,$1,500.00 And here I thought I hated politicians. Carnival is owned by the rich and this is how they treat the average person. I have NEVER read such outrageous customer complaints in my 69 years of living in this world!

The passengers shouldn't have to sign off on squat. It should just be given to them with no stipulations. As soon as the paper work comes out so do the lawsuits.
