I have not heard of anything like that cruise-related, but I have had friends book hotel rooms through Priceline and then show up to the hotel to find out there is no room at the inn. () In both instances, Priceline moved them to a different hotel. And, in both instances, the hotels were supposedly not as good as what they had originally booked. I don't know if they really had any recourse since they did get a room for the same price.

You mentioned that you were leary of dealing with Priceline or Carnival again. I would be leary of the Priceline thing, but not Carnival. The cruise was a service being offered by a 3rd party, not by the cruiseline, so I wouldn't really blame Carnival in this instance. . . .
