With all the talk about Disney and Sea World and other fun things, I don't think I've ever seen this addressed. Below is a copy of post from a Cruise forum that I just posted. I figured I'd see if there were any experienced cruisers with advice, but I also thought there might be T1D parents with advice too. Fire away. It's a Carnival cruise and we leave on Monday, March 29th. _______________________________________ Ok, I'm a noob. Semi-noob. Cruised from Jacksonville FL to Nassau and back in 1990. My wife, son and I are part of a group going from our son's high school. We had one of the other moms booked our cruise through a travel agent. (Referred to as The Booking Mom from here on out) Apparently, The Booking Mom booked our airline tickets separately. When we finally were given the information about our cruise, a little over a week ago , we realized that our son was in a room an entire deck away after we speficially had asked to have adjoining rooms because he is a Type 1 diabetic and we check his blood sugar 3 times a night. We asked The Booking Mom to call the TA and get the room changed. She said it took 5 phone calls, but she finally got the room changed so it's closer...12 rooms away. My wife tried to call The Booking Mom back, but she's out of town for a funeral. She called the TA and got no help. So, she called Carnival, explained the situation and got treated like crap. "You are part of a group" was what she was told. So, do any of you experienced cruisers have any advice? Any suggestions on how to elevate the issue up through the CCL chain of command? We really feel strongly that we need an adjoining room. Carnival told my wife that there would be a 50% penalty if we bailed out now. Advice would be appreciated.
