Default Carnival Liberty - Cruise From Hell

I disagree about whose fault it is. The line paid for the ship and
could have paid for more sound insulation. The builder isn't going to
provide it gratis.


Certainly it is the cruise lines responsibility. A sound insulation
problem in design should have been addressed at a dry dock after the
ship was built. Some issues don't get discovered until after the ship
is delivered so they are fixed in dry dock. Passengers should not be
subjected to excessive continuos noise in any cabin location.

Another thing, even after looking at deck plans there can be issues
that have nothing to do with cabin location. On one cruise there was an
annoying noise in my cabin all the time. There was some problem with
the pipes inside the cabin. Celebrity was able to move me to another
cabin despite the sign at the desk about the ship being full and no
changes possible. They even gave me a choice of three cabins! Of course
that gave me warm feelings about Celebrity because they satisfied me.

On Old Sarge's cruise the cruise line failed to satisfy. Because of
this fail they are going to lose a customer. I suspect they could have
found another cabin. There are usually a few last minute cancelations.

I challenge anyone to book Cabin 8319 or any one around it on either
side of the ship and report back that they didn't hear any deck noise,
noise so bad that it woke you up, unless of course you are a deep
sleeper.


I'll book it, you pay for it. I want to see your name and complaint
vindicated, lol

Funny Chrissy. I have been vindicated by Carnival already. They asked me
what they could do to make it right for me. I told them since it really
wasn't their fault, just and oversight, they need not compensate me.
I'll chalk that one up to being too stupid to research the cabin
location, but then who would have known that those tables and chairs
moved around the deck, and would make so much noise? I told them about
my idea of putting rubber feet on the furniture on the wooden decks and
I think they went for it. I already had my experience, I just don't want
others to have to suffer the same thing.

You're a trusting soul, Sarge, even if you took the stance that Carnival
is so inept at designing staterooms without the appropriate sound
insulation, then you would have to reeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccch a long
way to fathom once they were aware of their major design boo-boo, they
were unable to fix the problem.

Trust me. they knew and they know.

location, but then who would have known that those tables and chairs
moved around the deck, and would make so much noise?


My first NCL cruise was below a restaurant and I researched it but it
never occurred to me that it would be like a bowling alley a 0500.

I told them about my idea of putting rubber feet on the furniture on
the wooden decks and I think they went for it. I already had my
experience, I just don't want others to have to suffer the same
thing.


kewl.
