  • Yes I live in the area where it left from, I believe they refunded the cruise, an additional $500 and a discount on a future cruise. Hard to say what I would consider fair compensation. Some say they would cruise again, others say no way they would ever take a cruise again. Everyone is different. So I think the standard shoud be refund the cruise x 2 plus if anyone falls ill and it is related I believe that Carnival should cover that as well. Lots of folks were due back at work and lost pay.

  • I don't know anyone. I think either a refund or voucher for another cruise is fair if they weren't able to complete their cruise.

  • I do not know anyone who went on that cruise but if I was on it, and did not get to enjoy any of it, being refunded my money would be enough.

  • I would be ok with it. Not sure what else they can give to the people. I think some people may sue but it could take years to get thru that so if they could get my money back plus $500 I would be happy with that.

  • They should get the full price of the trip back. Plus a little more. Depening on how many extra days it took to get back.

  • see I don't think that would be enougjh for me just.... a refund, they are offering that and $500 I believe, that was a very long time in those horrible conditions I'd be soooo beyond pissed

  • true it would take me a while to get over that listening to the ppl & their stories, just brutal we had a nightmare trip to a resort in Acapulco and it brought me back to thinking of the misery & how sick we were also from the resort, nightmare thats all I can say
