I totally agree with this. It's just unfair, and that they are allowed to continually do it is mind boggling. While I understand they this happens and it is unfair to a lot of people, it comes with basically zero cost to the cruise line. I'd like to see them be forced to offer more compensation than just minimal OBC (shoot, pass the associated cost on to the organization that leased the ship). It's not simply a matter of having the money refunded, its having to start vacation planning all over, often after previous options are no longer available!! And no, this has never happened to me, its just painfully obvious to me that it is an unfair practice.
boricua568, I'm sorry this happened to you. I wish you had had more time to make a better decision. But mostly, I'm sorry that so many of the posters here at CC take enjoyment at others pain, as if they're perfect and lead untainted lives. Its not what you expected when you posted, and I'm sorry they collectively have decided to bully you into thinking your a fool!!
