AxemRed: 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.


You ever see that twilight zone where the power goes out for a bit and people start turning on eachother? There is a little truth to that.

Back during Sandy, we lost power in our building for about a week. Nice, upscale place.

While most people handled things fine, a few people inexplicably decided it meant society had crumbled, and were leaving trash in hallways or the trash rooms, instead of carrying it down a few flights of stairs, diapers wherever, breaking doors and what not to keep them propped open, all kinds of stupid stuff that there was really no explanation for, other than they decided that no power meant every other norm went out the window.

In short, you have a percentage of people who are jerks, and are just looking for an excuse to act on it. It only takes a handful of people to stop caring to turn things to shiat.

Me? I'd be thinking, "Hey, free vacation, free food and booze, cool story to tell everyone. So what if I have to poop in a bag a few times. I mean, that is almost a bonus, when else will I get to poop in a bag"

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!

akula: Big Man On Campus: I still consider it not-legitimate travel. Flying to a hotel in a location, that's travel. Floating on a cruise ship moves you around much like the people-mover moves people around disneyland all while pretending that the cruise ship itself is the destination. To me it's like comparing being able to ride a motorcycle vs being forced to only use the bus to experience a city, while paying outrageous amounts to use the bus. True, the bus is more comfortable and comes with less risk, but ultimately you're on a bus meaning you're apart from the world you're trying to see.

You're not making one bit of sense. Your analogy of flying/cruising to motorcycle/bus just sucks. You will NEVER be part of the places you visit. Not going to happen. Maybe by hanging out in a hostel or something you feel you're getting the real feel, but it still isn't. If you aren't buying a house/flat, getting a job, and making your way in the world you're just transitory. The only difference is in the length of your stay.

So you hate cruises without having been on one. Yay you. Feel free to stand in judgment over those who have been places on a cruise ship. You just end up coming across like a judgmental asshole. I don't doubt there's those who have experienced Nassau in ways that are deeper and more meaningful from my experience. I don't give a shiat. I had a good time and moved on. That's what I was after. If the locals didn't like it, at least they liked my money enough to pretend they enjoyed our presence until we left. They're probably doing the same thing to you. NOBODY likes tourists when they come to visit... doesn't matter if they got off a boat, an airplane, or a UFO.

If the people on the cruise feel like they're getting the experience they wanted and enjoyed, why do you feel the need to shiat all over it? Do you go up to kids who are happily eating their Hydrox and tell them that they're missing our because their parents are cheap bastards who didn't buy Oreos?


Arguing over whose vacation was more meaningful.  That's the very definition of...

Big Man On Campus: Walker: A fairly crappy hotel? These are pics of the ship in question. Does this look like a crappy hotel pool area?

Yes, It's TOO crowded.

Is this a crappy hotel theater?

Yes, the seats don't recline and there's all-but-useless drink tables in the way of my legroom. Doesn't look comfortable.

Does this look like a crappy hotel atrium?

In fairness, no, that looks like a nice bar.

And the Triumph is an older ship, built in 1999. Newer ships have ice rinks, flowriders, rock climbing walls, zip lines, carousels, trees, real grass lawns, etc. You will not get bored or feel stuck. I just got back from a cruise. While most of America was freezing we were laying poolside and drinking while watching the AFC and NFC championship games on the big screen TV by the pool. Some people were watching them from the hot tubs. You can eat different food every day, not the same, and not buffet if you don't want to. There are more restaurants on the ship than days you will be on the ship. The ship does not "slosh", it has stabilizers. Visit tourist traps? I've climbed waterfalls, explored jungles, and met people all over the world via cruising. But stick to your incorrect assumptions about cruising. Less people cruising = cruise lines desperate to fill their ships = lower prices for those of us that do want to cruise.

Ok, but you could get *ALL* of those things and more at an actual land-based resort. So why do them on a somewhat-restricted-in-capability steel tourist barge? Is it just to be on the water and visit exotic locales? You can do that by learning to sail and chartering your own barebones sailboat for dirt cheap, plus the locals like you more when you do this.

Walker: Does this look like a crappy hotel pool area?


Actually, yes. Yes it does. It looks like way too many fat honkeys crammed into too small an area, and I don't even see a pool, just a couple little hot tubs. I grant you the theater looks pretty nice, but I can't spend all my time in a theater. I'm more interested in what the cabins look like.

Newer ships have ice rinks, flowriders, rock climbing walls, zip lines, carousels, trees, real grass lawns, etc.

You know what else has trees, real grass lawns, and rock walls? The great outdoors. And there's a lot more of them than they can stuff onto a boat. Still don't understand the appeal.

Walker: 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.


You are actualy thinking of Bolgia 2 from the 8th circle of hell which is reserved for flatterers. They are seeped in human shiat to represent the words they used. The only real boat is on the 5th circle, but that's more of a skiff than a cruise ship.

The 9th circle of Hell is a vast cavern of ice in which Lucifer is imprisoned.

not to sound like a pompous white middle-aged middle-class arrogant douche, but triumph is the worst ship in the carnival fleet, and carnival is the worst cruise line.

sailed this ship in 2011.  toilet flooded overnight on day 4 of 5 (at sea).  woke up to wet floors and one hell of a smell.  called housekeeping to let them know of the issue.  they promptly got to our room three hours later.  only solution they gave us was to fix the toilet and spend the day with a fan on the floor.  after writing carnival management to let them know about the unpleasant situation...their long winded response could have been abbreviated to just say "tough titty, try again next time".

tickets on carnival are cheap for a reason.  spend the extra money with someone else and enjoy your cruise, unless you enjoy shiatting in a bucket during your extended detour through alabama.

/oh yeah, and ncl everything is ala carte so expect to spend a lot more

Carth: Why can't they just send another boat to rescue them?


The passageways are extended gutters and the gutters are full of poop and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their broken toilets and bags of poo will foam up about their waists and all the passengers and crew will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll whisper "no."

People are awful when they aren't forced to NOT be awful.

Suffice it to say, if this was a ship full of military personnel, there wouldn't be shiat flowing everywhere. The commanding officers would've organized different crews to handle sanitation, in shifts, and everybody would be put on a "poop schedule". Food would be rationed, with an eye towards minimizing poop production. Anyone that screwed with the schedule would be locked up.

But instead, we have a bunch of overfed entitled idiots shiatting everywhere and whining that they aren't getting their usual 5000 calories/day.

Rev.K: 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.


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.
