Atkitadog, IMO It's very unfortunate that you had a bad experience. Sometimes we need to accept that is just the way it is, let it go. Don't waste your energy and precious life on something in the past that can never be fixed. It may be you need to give another carnival cruise another chance. Maybe then you will be able to let it go, they really are a great company. Don't get me wrong but was it really that bad? You were on holidays. Life is not meant to be perfect it would be pretty boring if it was.

Ok... now that we have all commented on Akitadog's post and she has had the opportunity to respond and apologize, let's move on and get back to the original subject of this thread. We are starting to list heavily to port.... time to correct the drift!

I am moving on from her comments but she never apologized for calling all carnival cruisers classless. she must have wanted to offend us...sorry she had to do it but I just assume she thought it had to be done.
lol I hope she finds people with class on her next cruise in her STUNNING pants suits. And another thing if she is so put out with Carnival why is she on a general cruise chat about carnival anyway.

Well, actually, this was just an off-shoot of something I said to a post in the Carnival section. So, I guess it's my fault. I just didn't want to drift to the tablemates in the post in Carnival. This was intended to be a fun post about tablemates, but guess it didn't work.

On our first cruise, which was a theme cruise with Richard Petty, his family, and his racing entourage, we were seated at the dreaded table for 4. The other couple worked for Richard. The lady was very nice (she made the team uniforms) but her husband (who had some flunky job with the racing team) was a jerk. When we sat down on the first night he was whining about how he wasn't at the same table as Richard, or even close to it. Apparently he felt he was much more important than he really was. He got over it after a couple days and things got better, but he still mostly ignored us and that was fine too. We didn't know any better at the time or we would have asked for a new seating assignment.

This guy could have used some lessons in class and how to treat people from his boss.

Many years ago(when I was still young)I was seated with a Doctor and her daughter.
They purchased reasonably mediocre wine in each port and brought it to the dining room.They made a production out of having the somalier uncork it each night.
They did share however..and even so-so wine is pretty good when it's free!

At least it wasn't uncapped. I know a guy who told me he had recently gotten interested in "fine" wine. He invited me to his house for some wine. He came out with a bottle of Riunite. Riunite is not without it's merits but, well, you know what I mean.

on our last cruise on the Legend my sister and I got seated at a DREADED 2 seater. well my sister is an intresting person but I know just about everything to know about her and her about me. We do live 1000 miles apart but with these handy dandy unlimited telephone calling plans I talk to her almost every day. After the first night we went to the nice matre de and asked to please put us at another table with people. And very very nice people there were.
