I have a serious issue concerning an event that took place on my last carnival cruise. I was not satisfied with the way that it was handled on the ship. I am about to send Carnival a letter and I am thinking of asking for a free cruise. In doing so, I would like to know what other types of things they give free cruises for. There are plenty of rumors out there and I refuse to believe something that is a rumor. So, if any of you have direct personal experience (I.E. YOU or a close family member complained and got a free cruise), please tell me what happened to warrent a free cruise. I am the victim of a serious violation, and I am not just making something up to get a free cruise. There is plenty of documentation from the ship security concerning what happened to me to prove what happened. I simply would like to be able to point out that this cruise line has given out free cruises for much less serious complaints.
