MD11F - I was not aware that notification was given prior to the trip to boarding passengers that the itinery may be changed, hence my remarks. Had I seen that somewhere I would have not said so.
I do blame Carnival though for going all the way to the Bahamas and then turning around to Newport. I think alot of people would have been less angry if they knew right from the start that they would be going on a modified Caribbean trip- say a day or two in the Bahamas with a stop in Bermuda, or a Canada/New England trip than sort of a half and half.
Playing Devils adovcate, it makes Carnival and the Captain look indecisive in their plan of action to the passengers to go all the way to the Bahamas and then go all the way up to Newport.
Yes, Hanna did a loop thing, but again it didn't happen all of a sudden, Meterologists were able to see it develop and knew it was coming back around. I just feel Carnival was not clear in their plan, and the communication of that plan to their passengers.
