[Resolved] Carnival Cruise Linesfirst cruise experience

Review updated:

Dear Carnival,

My family and I recently went on our first cruise on October 6-13 2019 on the beautiful Carnival Glory. The staff was as accommodating as they could but advised us to get in touch with Carnival after we debarked. There was construction going on on several of the life boats under our balcony Room 6308 and the wires under our booth in the Golden Restaurant shorted out causing a burning plastic smell.

My father, his wife, my husband, and myself were unable to relax or stay in our balcony room 6308 at all from the hours of 7AM - 7PM because there was the use of an air chisel on steel under our feel. We could feel it vibrate everything underneath us and it was so loud we could not hear each other speak. We were highly disappointed because this was all of our first cruise and we thought we were paying for a relaxing time. Instead we received several headaches.

In addition to construction, Tuesday October 8 we ate dinner around 7:30PM at the Golden Restaurant and started smelling burning plastic. My father and his wife started feeling heat radiating from the bottom and back of the booth. My fathers house burned down with him inside of it a couple years ago and now has PTSD. He was unable to sleep for 2 days after smelling a burning smell again.

My Family and I would like to continue cruising with Carnival in the future and really look forward to becoming platinum members one day. We would just like to make Carnival aware of our experience and disappointments for our first cruise and would like some sort of reimbursement.
