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 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.
Thank you for your part in my insurance premiums increasing in the future.

There's quite a bit of hyperbole/overreaction going on in here. These incidents (fire, main engine blown out, etc.) are very rare. Go look up how many times they've occurred vs. the number of cruises over that time span. It's a very low percentage.

No thanks. The idea of being on an airplane and unable to leave is unsettling enough. But the idea of being on one of these ships for days into areas where regulations are less stringent and rules are lax. Pass.

People are funny that way. My MIL is afraid to fly so ends up driving from Oregon to Florida and back a couple of times a year. No matter what, I can't convince her which is the more dangerous of the two.

Precisely. People are illogical.

Brutal. But I guess it would be okay if you had nothing better to do.

You can bet someone is.

You just don't want a class action.
I find this more disgusting than the idea that he sued, and won, for a bogus claim. And I was once sued for one. My insurance company did their homework and found out it was a serial claimant and she got nothing. I think she even had to pay court costs. LOL. The poster above will one day find himself in a similar situation. Maybe he shot his wad on a short term gain when on down the road there will be a serious long term gain he will lose out on.

THAT would be justice.

This is the first post you've made that I've not really agreed with, but its' enough to tell me what kind of person you are.

If I ever should host an event, please don't come. I wouldn't want you to shove a lobster up your ass and then sue me for not providing details on the proper consumption of large crustaceans.

You sir are the kind of bag of penis that is fornicating up this country. Damn you sir. Damn you.

I'd have called you an ignorant one who sucks the penis who drinks from a state fair outhouse on the last day, but you'd probably lawyer up, so I won't do that.

FTR, a van turned in front of me and I hit them broadside about 50mph...stuck my head through the windshield and have had pain about every day since for nearly 2 decades...and didn't ask for a dime.
