My iPad 2 is not syncing Calendar events to other devices through iCloud

Devices: MacBook Pro (Mountain Lion 10.8.2), iPhone 3GS (iOS 6.0.1), iPad 2 (iOS 6.0.1)
iPad 2 Settings:
iCloud settings: Calendars 'ON'
Mail, Contacts, Calendars: Default Calendar: Calendar; Sync: All events
Shared Calendar Events: 'ON'
Within Calendar App: Calendars checked: Calendar
iPhone 3GS Settings:
Identical to iPad 2 settings
MacBook Pro iCloud Calendar: only Calendar checked


I set up the following test event entries for the same date to see what was coming up in each device above:
1-From iPad: "iPad to iCloud test"
2-From iPhone: "iPhone to iCloud test"
3-From iCloud.com: "iCloud.com to iCloud test"
4-From MacBook Pro: MacBook Calendar App to iCloud test

(The last two entries may be redundant, but I wanted to cover all possibilities.)

I then I checked the Calendar App for each of the above devices for "events" 1, 2, 3, and 4 above.

The iPhone Calendar App had "events" 2, 3, and 4
The MacBook Calendar App through LaunchPad had "events" 2, 3, and 4
iCloud.com had "events" 2, 3, and 4
The iPad, however, had "events" 1, 2, 3, and 4, #1 being the iPad-to-iCloud test

Only the iPad had all events entered from all devices. This creates a problem, of course, since I almost always have the iPad with me, and that's where I prefer to make additions/changes to Calendar, Contacts, Notes, and Reminders. It does happen, however, that only the iPhone is handy for checking an appointment, etc., so dependability across iCloud is pretty important! What can I do to resolve this?

N.B., Contacts and Reminders synced successfully across all devices through iCloud.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

Well, I guess I lied...
Now, it seems that only the MacBook is syncing to the other devices. iPhone and iPad entries are no longer updating to iCloud; entries are not showing up in other devices. Grrr...
MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

Same for me. I have lost valuable calendars. New appointment inserted on iPad have disappeared.
I have relied on this system and it has completely screwed me.
I have tried many fixes too.
Back to paper diary for me. At least it does what I want.

I have given up trying to manage calendars and worrying about duplicate entries. I have a calender set up in google calendar, Pocket Informant, Exchange, one that says work, one says family.
It's gotten me crazy. I have no clue how to set it up so that if I make a calendar entry on my iPhone it shows up on my Google and Outlook calendars!

Update!
Since Apple has released iOS6.1 for iPad and iPhone, all issues have been resolved. Calendar, Notes, Contacts, and Reminders are now syncing as they should across all my devices.

Thank you, Apple!!

What's your default calendar?
