    Carnival cruise line bans family for life

    You would that that it would take a pretty serious infraction to cause a cruise line operator to ban you for life -- pushing the annoying commerical guy overboard, for example, or dumping soap in the water slide pool.

    But surely not for getting a few scratches on your dresser. According to one Mr. Chris Harvey who took a cruise docking into Ft. Lauderdale this summer, however, that's what got him and his family the boot. In addition to that, Mr. Harvey claims that the scratches were there long before the cruise says that they existed, suggesting that the staff falsely accused them of causing the damage.

    In the end, Harvey signed a document accepting a life time ban from the entire cruise line, the only alternative to coughing up some cash for the damages. You can read about his experience at his website.

    Since the ban, however, the plot has thickened. Harvey was able to produce a few photos showing that the dresser was already damaged before the cruise claimed, and now that his story has gained traction on his site, Carnival is reversing the ban.

    In the end, the moral of this whole fiasco is the check you room before you move in. Like a rental car, you're liable for any damage during your stay.

    It's not very likely that Mr Harvey will want to sail with Carnival again though is it so they might be wasting their time unbanning him!

    Good point about the liability though and worth reporting any damage in the cabin with pictures in case it gets worse and you are blamed for it!

        I'm thinking there's a lot more in the mortar than just the pestle -with this story..
