 He said passengers were given plastic bags to "use for their business."

What a bag of crap might look like:

Of course the Carnival guy is gonna lie and say everyone on the ship is lying. There are numerous reports of raw sewage running down the ship's walls. This is like stuff out of the 9th level of Hell. They may actually have to make a new level of hell just for this.

And of course passengers would never exaggerate the situation to gain attention and fodder for lawsuits and appearences on morniing talk shows.

My sister-in-law and her husband are on that ship.
The last time that we heard from them, the husband was making up some of those bags for the people to go in.
They should have some great stories when they get back.

How are passengers on a stranded ship in the middle of the ocean reporting this? If there is barely enough generator power to cook, or run the toilet system (electric pumps, not gravity fed for those who have never been on a ship), then they probably wouldn't have the internet or Cellular-At-Sea system up.

Maybe a couple of passengers have learned semaphore and are reporting to passing ships.

The communications systems are on emergency power. Many people called, emailed, tweeted, loved ones until their electronics went dead because there was nowhere to re-charge them.

rev. dave: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Every deck is the poop deck.

From Wiki:
The name originates from the French word for stern, la poupe, from Latin puppis. Thus the poop deck is technically a stern deck, which in sailing ships was usually elevated as the roof of the stern or "after" cabin, also known as the "poop cabin". In sailing ships, with the helmsman at the stern, an elevated position was ideal for both navigation and observation of the crew and sails.

Hmmm, between captains abandoning their shipwrecked vessels, poo oozing down the walls and the near certainty of contracting Norovirus, I just don't know why I wouldn't ever want to go on a cruise.

Meh. (Haven't seen anything like that since the Anita Bryant concert.)

Meh.

The "hamburgers" being served are meatless.

Meh.

Well it is a great bargain. I've taken 8 of them, usually 7-night cruises. About $60 a day pays for your hotel accommodations (the ship), your transportation (the ship), all you can eat, and all your entertainment. Visiting 4 countries/islands for $60 a day isn't possible another way. Try to find a round trip flight/hotel/all meals deal for $60 total a day. I even found a 10-night Hawaiian Islands to Mexico cruise for $299. It visited all the main Hawaiian Islands then sailed across the Pacific for 5 days to Mexico. So I'm not anti-cruise. Most people who bash cruises have never been on one. Once you go on one you'll be hooked....unless it was this one.

And when shiat like this happens, the company's response is usually "Okay, we'll give you a refund and a free cruise.  We're all good now, right?"

How the hell are these cruise lines still in business?  Why do people still want to go on floating hotels like this?

Aso, once you go balcony, you don't back.
/came off an 8-day cruise two weeks ago

Here's my disgusting buffet line story from the last one:  I was sitting at a table near the salad bar waiting for my wife so we could go to the pool when I see a teenage girl at the salad bar taking a sip of the salad dressing with the ladel and then putting it back!!

//stay away from the buffet and always have breakfast and dinner in the dining room. I you do go to the buffet go the stations where the staff preparesf your food

I dunno. It still sounds to me like being stuck in a fairly crappy hotel (that sloshes back and forth) for days on end eating the same crappy buffet food, and occasionally you get to leave the hotel and visit the port town tourist traps of some third-world country.

Friend of ours is on it. He sent an email yesterday saying the worst part about it is now everyone knows he went on a carnival cruise. Aside from crappy a/c and longer lines, it isn't anywhere as near as bad as people are making it out to be.

The ship, the Carnival Triumph, is still at least a day from being guided to a port in Mobile, Ala.

So I expect we'll find out what was really going on in about a day when passengers start uploading their cell phone photos and videos.
 
2013-02-13 01:35:49 PM  
I don't understand why there would be shiat everywhere. Can't they just poo in buckets and throw it overboard? Maybe one or two toilets overflowed, but the whole ship should not be covered in shiat after only a week.
 
2013-02-13 01:37:22 PM  
Why doesn't the power system have better redundancy and graceful-failure modes?  If you have multiple engines and generators on the boat, separate them by firewalls and intervening space so that a single accident can't wipe out the entire thing.

Most people don't know how to deal with any adversity whatsoever and will panic... especially when it comes to going without the magic that is indoor plumbing.

2013-02-13 01:41:01 PM  
Dumb question. Why can't they just send another boat to rescue them? If the boat had sunk would they be stranded in those little lifeboats for a week before anyone could get to them?

A cruise is quite possibly one of the best vacations you can have. The problem is that when things go wrong, you can't just go home. You're stuck there until God knows when.

The wife and I have plans to try a Disney cruise when the boy gets a bit older.
 
2013-02-13 01:44:22 PM  
If they could see me now,
Right on fun ship cruise,
Fighting for some food
And walking over poos,
I'd like my friends at home to get a good look,
At this doomed hell-ship and walls dripping with dook.
The heat and smell gave me a fit,
And look at where you are,
What a farked ship, holy shiat,
They'll never believe it if my friends could see me now!
