Carnival Cruise Ship Stranded For 3rd Day - Sewage "Running Down The Walls"

Ever been on a cruise ship?

I haven't and this is one of the reasons why.

I'm sure people have had good times, but to me, you are a prisoner to the ship once you leave shore.

"Foul conditions aboard stranded Carnival cruise ship Triumph: Passengers describe 'sewage running down the walls' and people acting like 'savages'

Since a fire broke out in an engine room Sunday morning, the Carnival Triumph has been drifting off the coast of Mexico. A total of 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crew have been forced to make do with cold food, no hot water, sweltering indoor temperatures, and few working toilets. A tow boat is expected Thursday, after an initial plan to tow the ship to a port in Mexico was scrapped."

No Lights, No Water

This cruise will be reimbursed in full, plus all onboard charges minus the gift shop and casino. An additional voucher for the same price paid as this cruise will be issued. Knowing her, she will book another cruise, but we'll see how enthusiastic she is on Friday. Yeah, I am sure this sucks, but I heard that the crew is giving out free alcohol. That may improve morale just a bit. The worst part is no communication, but that will change on Thursday.

Wow, three days plus stranded at sea with limited to no services and crappy conditions and that is the best they could offer? I won't even look at Carnival when we go on a cruise now.

I agree. I just want her home safe. I think there is quite a bit more that should be reimbursed, like lost revenue from work, etc. but that will be addressed soon enough.

Heh, I was thinking, just give them free booze! Then I thought, Isn't booze part of all inclusive? Now I'm thinking, giving a bunch of pissed people booze isn't a great idea, especially when the toilets don't work. Anyways, hope all ends well.

Doesn't it seem like it would be possible to have emergency generators or something similar on ships that size that could at least keep the essential utilities up and running?

To make that cruise worse, they are getting towed back to Mobile. After seeing Mobile, they might want to get back on the ship.

there's not enough room for both that and the sundae bar.

The free gifts will lose their luster when disembarking, family and friends realize that the bottom half of their "My wife went on a Carnival Cruise and all I got was this T shirt" was ripped off to use as an ESK(Emergency Shit Kit).


If I were on that cruise, I'm pretty sure I'd blow mud off the Bow of the boat and shout "KING OF THE WORLD!".

I think I'd be commandeering a lifeboat about the time one of the little boats in the video was coming by.

Just saw this. No, I was recommending Royal Caribbean or Celebrity over Carnival or Norwegian. You get what you pay for.

While my wife was packing for the trip, she kept saying that she really liked going on cruises and that she should do it more often. It will be interesting to hear her opinion now.

It still sucks not being able communicate though.
