You have to give credit to RCI for at least offering that much. They didn't have to. I doubt that 30% of a future cruise would make up the hotel nights and the flights to the next port, but its better than leaving them high and dry.

I think Carnival realized with the Splendor fire, that treating your customers well and compensating them fairly is much better advertisement than that same money can buy. It probably cost them a couple hundred thousand dollars to put those people up in hotels and fly them to the next port but how much does commercial time on national tv cost?
