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

I wonder how many cruisers have thought of using the swimming pools for large outdoor toilets?


OHHH, POOL BOY!

I have several friends on that cruise - they all said "It's not THAT bad." One said dealing with the after effects of Hurricane IKE was MUCH worse and that THIS (what he's experiencing on the cruise) is really nothing other than a HUGE disappointment. Another said that he sleeps outside on the deck and pisses in a bottle and craps in a bag (and throws it overboard) . He said it's just like going camping - except he's on a boat.

I went the neck doctor and claimed soft tissue damage which they can't prove or disprove.

The insurance company settled for 120K, 1/3 went to the lawyer.

Make sure you get a lawyer that will do it on a contingency basis, no money out of pocket.

You already have a cause of action.
You are a grade A asshole. Karma's a bitch, and so are you.

I FINALLY received a call from my wife and she said mostly the same thing. Is there poop running down the walls in some cabins? Yes. Are they rationing water? Yes. Is there only cold food? Yes. It could be worse, but my wife was mostly concerned about walking through the muck for the last few days and she has developed a cough. A good shower, hot food, and a checkup and she should be back in business. Gonna be a long day til they are off the ship though.

Yeah - Exactly - probably longer than usual since they know that today is the day.

Carnival better plan to "retire" that ship...nobody will ever want to schedule a shitty vacation on that floating trap. Been on my last cruise...I felt as though I was trapped on a floating Walmart store.
