    I would love to do any cruise. I have to see how it all works, but my Mother is putting the pressure on me that she wants to sail Alaska. She has mentioned it more than once now. I think it will depend on rates and maybe waiting till next summer.

    I was on the Destiny in May, quite possibly one of the worst ships EVER! You could smell the garbage, the AC in my friends room was broken, I am pretty sure the carpet was older than me. I think the distillation system was not working either, my ankles swelled so badly and that did not happen on my 8 day NCL cruise, I was only on the destiny for 4 days. I was on a chartered cruise so I had no choice, but I will never sail Carnival again on my own free will.

    During my lunch hour, I read that they are not leaving port and will be flying everybody back to Florida.

    Yes, I read that too. I am wondering with all these Carnival issues, if it will now be mandatory to have a passport for cruising soon.

    I wondered that as well. I also wondered two other things: 1) will it possibly make the price of cruising go down because everybody will be scared to cruise; or, 2) will it make the other cruise lines prices go up because nobody wants to book with Carnival.

    That's what I'm worried about. I've been watching the Disney cruise prices for 2014 and, so far, they haven't changed.

    Hi Jen,

    I really love your trip reports!! Coming out of lurkdom to tell you I bought those crocs in February at Mouse Gear in Epcot. They are very comfortable

    yeah, those won't go down, but as it gets closer they may offer a special like kids sail free or something along those lines or a guarantee rate. Disney prety much never goes down for the regular rates though.

    I am so jealous. I just hate my big giant feet!

    I saw that too. There's no way in the world that I'd cruise with Carnival!:scared:

    I've cruised with Carnival twice and never experienced any issues but this is downright ridiculous. I think they're going to start having some serious financial difficulties if they don't revamp.

    When we first started talking about cruising, I priced out the Carnival cruises and they were a lot cheaper. Now I see why...doesn't sound like they are putting any money into maintaining their ships.

    I finally made it back for the end! How crazy was that debarking? I've never seen a pic with all the people crammed into the hall like that.

    Oh well, in hindsight now, at least you weren't on the other ship in port! :rolleyes1

    We booked for 2014 back in January, and prices haven't budged at all (either up or down).

    How was your trip?

    It was a bit crazy and I was glad I didn't have to get off early and worry about my flight.

    I finally finished your tr!!!!!!! I was still back at the Mayan Ruins:laughing:

    I was so far behind I'm just hearing about Skips trip back to the hospital. Is he better now and listening to his doctors?

    The tours and class you did sound like fun! Too bad they couldn't give you a little brochure about the ship tour so you could remember everything they talked about.

    I loved the TR and seeing everything you did. Now I just have to catch up on your other one:surfweb:

    YAY!

    Skip had his hip surgery, then his infections surgery and now Wed. he is supposed to have a skin graft surgery. I am so sick of all this now. And I am sick and he is being the biggest jerk and blaming me. Um, I didn't go out in a barn with an open wound and get it infected.

    I should've had a little tape recorder with me to get the highlights. :rotfl:

    I hate that he's having to go through all of this. Men say that we are stubborn but they are just as stubborn....for example, someone who just had hip replacement surgery hanging out in dirty stinky barns. :rotfl:

    Actually, the tape recording ain't a bad idea. Do you know how many cases we have won with tape recordings? Tons!
