    Dear Patricia,

    We are sorry to hear that Mr. & Mrs. Mcrae where onboard to sail due to Mr. Mcrae's unexpected surgery. We hope he is feeling better and on the road to recovery.

    We have forwarded the information you provided to the Guest Administration department for review however please note that the document provided was not clear and they might request for it to be submitted again. There is no guarantee that anything could be offered as these are the reason's we offer vacation protection plan for situations such as these. Although in some cases a refund is provided it does provide the cardholder with a 75% Future cruise credit for the cancel for any reason.

    We will not provide any further information via this open forum so we suggest should you have any questions to call Guest Administration for assistance or write to

    I had booked a cruise for January 2019 booking number 1MNC38 AND 1MNC62 on carnival magic back to back cruises, and unfortunately my Husband has to have major Back surgery. I spoke with a representative on the phone tonight April 17th and was informed that my deposit was non refundable. i am very disappointed as we have cruised before and life happens i get that, but apparently carnival doesn't get that life happens. We did not expect this surgery to happen and i am very disappointed with the outcome. Shame on carnival for not giving back the deposits in such circumstances.
    We will think long and hard before we decide whether or not to ever travel again with Carnival cruise lines . I also see by the reviews i am not the only one this has happened to. We will also continue to let people know of the poor service from Carnival Cruise Lines

    @nashville2018 Dear Tina,

    We are sorry to hear that also had to cancel your cruise due to unexpected surgery. As we responded to the above party it is for reasons such as these that we offer Vacation protection plan. Life is sure to sometimes through us some curve balls hence the reason that Vacation protection plan should be considered when making certain plans.

    May we suggest you Do not submit or communicate via this open forum should you have any questions you can contact Carnival Service for assistance.

    Please understand that Carnival sure understand that things happen so as a courtesy you may provide supporting documentation together with your booking information to for review.
