When “Nowhere” Might Mean Somewhere

When Carnival Fantasy left Mobile yesterday, it had a propulsion issue and passengers were advised they weren't going to be able to call at Cozumel as scheduled. The cruise was becoming a cruise to nowhere and would remain at sea the entire time.

Passengers were offered some generous compensation (50% refund and 50% future cruise credit), but quite a few decided to disembark and receive a full refund. It turns out they may have made the wrong decision.

The complete story appeared in the April 14 edition of Cruise News Daily.
