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

watching the reactions from guest leaving last night......they were all over the map.

A couple of ladies seemed like the type who complain about everything. They probably would have had lots of complaints on a normal cruise. A couple of people took it all in stride, and continued to make the best of a bad situation. I like that attitide.

I'm sure it was nowhere near pleasant but CNN sensationalism tried to make it sound as though it was akin to the Titanic coated in human waste and everyone on board was a half step away from death.

A ship with 6,000 people that's built for 3,000, with probably little extra storage for food, extra emergency equipment, extra space for employees, etc; sounds like a terrible idea.

Yeah, I read one quote that mentioned how great the staff was through the whole thing, and of course other people focusing on how terrible everything was, how they weren't told anything, etc. I thought the cruise I went on last summer was perfect, yet heard people complain about every little thing... so I'm surprised those types of people didn't throw themselves overboard, instead of dealing with the horrors of cold food, cold showers, and power failures.

One article was "5 things we learned about cruises," and it went into how any cruise can change course at any time and that it's written into the contract that there might not even be compensation if they miss a port...... it wasn't even about this freakin' ship, it was just a fluff article to show the evils of cruise lines. If Carnival was taking unnecessary risks, that's one thing, and I'm sure they'll fix it after all of this bad press... but, sometimes bad things happen. Even on vacation.

One of the interviews I heard last night made me laugh. The lady on board talked of having to take cold showers and standing in line for 2-3 hours for food and then mentioned, "we're missing dinner right now to talk to you" to the reporter. I told the Mrs that it seemed to me that she was missing dinner BY CHOICE.

That would be the only real question I would have as well (I've yet to be able to find an answer from a reliable source).
That question was asked to the VP last night and he was promptly whisked away by his handler (assuming it was a Carnival lawyer or something).

I will keep you posted. Right now, we are just going to get some rest. Nothing has been signed or even presented at this point. We are expecting something via snail mail.
