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

No **** that.

This is America.

I would definitely look into suing for lost wages, emotional distress, sexual harassment, attempted rape, robbery, etc, etc, etc.

You can bet someone is.

You just don't want a class action.

As many problems as Carnival has been having with boats burning, breaking down or rolling over, taking one of their cruises sounds like about as good of an idea as having uncle Sandusky watch your kids for the weekend.

Yep, what I do want is a: "settled out of court for an undisclosed amount". This is assuming that she arrives safely.

It still sucks not being able communicate though.
Have you tried using semaphore flags to communicate?

It's probably not fun now, but she's going to have a great story later about how she was once adrift at sea. She won't have to tell people that it was on a cruise ship.

I would be looking for a Personal Injury lawyer right now and I'm not joking.

I had someone bump me in bumper to bumper traffic a few years ago. Maybe doing 1 mph or less.

I had an eye witness that saw this guy do it on purpose. I think the traffic was getting to him.

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.

(10:30 a.m. EST) -- Carnival Cruise Lines CEO and president Gerry Cahill said Tuesday conditions aboard Carnival Triumph, which suffered an engine room fire Sunday morning, are very challenging. But he insisted there are working toilets, playing down the image playing out in the national media of sewage running down the walls.
"No one here from Carnival is happy about the conditions aboard ship… there is no question that conditions onboard are very challenging. Most of the public bathrooms, there are 23 public bathrooms, most of them are working," he said during a news conference in Miami. There is also a "good section" of passenger cabins, in the forward and midship sections of the ship, that are working.
His statement contrasts sharply with reports from the national media, as well comments from Cruise Critic members, that there are no toilets or running water and that there is human waste everywhere.
LynnA last heard from her daughter-in-law Tuesday morning via text. "[Feces] and [urine] rolling across floor with every wave. People sick and throwing up every where," she texted.
First-hand accounts in news outlets paint a similar picture.
Jimmy Mowlam told the Miami Herald his 37-year-old son phoned him Monday night to say there is no running water and few working toilets. Passengers, he said, are being given plastic bags for when they need to go to the bathroom.
Carnival maintains there is running water, albeit cold, on the ship, so passengers can wash their hands and take showers.
Carnival Triumph is on its way Mobile, Alabama, under the power of two tugboats towing the ship at approximately 8 miles per hour. The ship is expected to arrive in Mobile late Thursday afternoon, where passengers can either spend the night in a hotel in Mobile or New Orleans or be bused back to Texas immediately.
More than 1,500 hotels rooms in Mobile and New Orleans have been booked and 10 charter flights have been secured to fly passengers to Houston on Friday. For passengers with cars at the port of Galveston, buses have been arranged to bring them back.
Carnival is in the process of securing buses for a Thursday evening transfer from Mobile to Houston or Galveston for passengers who would rather get home sooner, Cahill said.
In the meantime, the line insists there is no shortage of food, with meals being served in the Lido dining area and at the grill in the poolside restaurant.
A fire left the ship adrift in the Gulf of Mexico with no power Sunday, February 10. No one was injuried from the fire, which the line says was contained by the ship's automatic extinguishing system.
A timeline for repairs to Triumph will be announced once the ship is in port and has undergone inspection, according to the line. Damage suffered by Carnival Splendor from an engine room fire in 2010 kept the ship out of service for more than three months.
Yesterday, the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Transportation Safety Board launched an investigation into the cause of the fire. The Bahamas Maritime Authority will be the lead investigative agency, as Carnival Triumph is a Bahamian-flagged ship.
