We have been kidnapped 12 days in Carnival Breeze

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

This cruise was a gift from my husband for my 60th birthday. I had to work 18 months to be able to accumulate enough vacation time to go on this trip. Our first problem was with Air France, that lost our bags when we arrived in Barcelona. After our arrival on the ship, we were told by Jan not to worry about our bags, that Carnival would be responsible for finding out bags. Three days later our bags arrived, so first of all I want to thank Jan for all of his attention and help on this matter.
We paid for 12 days of cruising, 9 at ports and 3 "fun days" at the sea. At the end we had 5 days at ports and 7 "fun days" at sea. Fun day at the sea means 4,000 people in the ship spending money in beverage, Casino, store... good deal for Carnival, not for us.
The sheets and ice buckets were never changed voluntarily. You had to ask for this to be done for anyone to come to your room to do it.
During our cruise departure from Barcelona, all of the announcements were made only in More Spanish and Russian, even though the ship was leaving from a spanish-speaking country and the ship is registered in Panama. A lot of the spanish-speaking cruisers were very upset because they could not understand any of the announcements.
When the two days in Venice were cancelled, everyone on the ship was outraged, and even though Captain Stefano Battinelli should have made an appearance to speak to the public, he only sent out his assistants to do the explaining. The compensation for the days lost at sea was only removal of the port charges from everyone's account, which is nothing compared to the amount people spent on the trip. If it was true that we could not dock at specific ports due to inclement weather, we should have been offered alternate ports to dock at. A lot of the entertainment on the ship was completely useless. The water slides and pools were all very nice, but who is going to go swimming in Europe in October. Carnival and its Captain Stefano Battinelli ruined the vacation of almost 4000 passengers. Less
