While I certainly understand the reason, I don't understand not giving more in compensation for what is essentially a loss of the first day of the cruise - with perhaps more disruption to come. $20 for lunch wouldn't cut it with me. Sure, it isn't Carnival's fault that a passenger apparently got very ill - but it isn't the new passengers' fault either yet they are paying the price so to speak.
Meanwhile Carnival gets another day of revenue from the current passengers.
I kinda thought that myself since they will not only miss lunch, but probably dinner as well.
I just hope they get in touch with everyone so that no one shows up at 10AM (without eating breakfast ~ expecting to get on my lunch) just to be sitting there the whole day with nothing to eat.
