The CEO of Carnival is Jack Lalane?

Not to worry. The ingrates on the boat get a $500 certificate for their next Carnival poop deck cruise to Alabama

Or he should be directing a review of maintenance logs and ship procedures to try to prevent future epic clusterfarks.

Meh, those cruises just don't look like a great get away in the first place.  Crammed all into a boat with thousands of people just does not appeal to me.

I read somewhere that Carnival is refunding the passengers' money and giving them a free cruise in the future.  Like anyone is going to claim that free cruise after this fiasco...

I sincerely hope that the passengers sue Carnival for damages, suffering, etc. and win.  And I wish I was a lawyer so I could be on the team and cash in as well.

It makes me wonder if Carnival is going to allow the "Goth Cruise" again due to lost passenger revenue from this incident.

My wife works with a woman who was on that ship the cruise before. Apparently there was an engine problem and they limped into port half a day late. We were on that ship back in September and had a good time. It was dated looking, but we didn't have any problems.
 
2013-02-13 06:58:52 PM
So i'm reading the comments and one in particular stood out.

If things are so bad aboard ship why hasn't the President sent the Coast Guard to evacuate the passangers. Oh!! wait since Obama sold the Coast guard to BP for a $100,000.00 it is now the responsibility of BPs CO to take care of that.

Huh?

Did I miss something or is this just the usual crazy we've come to expect from the right?

getting agitated about this is entirely illogical.

its also entirely predictable. shoulda kept yer head down till it was back in port dude. missing 1 game wont kill ya.

While I don't think there is anything he could personally do at the exact moment to help, you would think that a company with that many cruise ships would have a better plan of action for situations like this.
 
2013-02-13 07:02:58 PM
Amazingly, the facebook comments for that ship aren't being trolled... that, or they're vigilantly deleting them.

A persual of the usual conspiracy sites didn't find that exact brand of crazy.  But I did find an article where the Coast Guard was allegedly working hand-in-hand with BP to keep journalists away from Deepwater Horizon, so maybe at was an attempt at clever shorthand that sounded more like a fat pile of stupid.

I dunno, I think it's kind of bad form to be out enjoying yourself while one of your ships is floating around the ocean and there's a media shiatstorm about it. Dude should have stayed home.

Does the CEO own a Tundra?

as if his responsibility as CEO would go beyond a media-friendly soundbyte and potentially ordering a refund.

that's akin to expecting the CEO of say, johnson & johnson to personally handle shipping logistics during a product recall.

i'm sure he'd get a phone call at the game if the boat sank.

Do you want the CEO of Delta flying your plane?

and in my opinion, going on a cruise as a vacation is the equivalent of calling eating at applebee's "fine dining."

you get what you pay for.
 
2013-02-13 07:12:21 PM
For a PR aspect you should be lying low, or ideally down at Alabama to personally ensure the passengers are taken care of when you land.  Of course in reality the drones will do the work and you'll just sit in the nicest hotel suite and booze.

Every President we've had has vacationed in the middle of one shiatstorm or another. No difference.

SOOOOO this. I wanted to get away for awhile, thought about flying to some city in some country I'd never been to to hang out for a few days (my typical vacation). My cruise enthusiast friends/family (read: evil people who hate me) talked me into taking a cruise.
"it's AMAZING! And you get to go to a lot of countries instead of just one!"

Almost flew home in the third port. There's just SO MANY PEOPLE and you're stuck around them all the time. And the ports suck donkeyballs, too. Oh, look, another Margaritaville, Harley Shop, Hard Rock, and dozens of jewelry shops! Belize is so incredible!!!

Screw cruises and the dipshiat "travelers" aboard them.

/yes, even you. You who is reading this confused, saying "but WE got away from the touristy stuff and took a Cruise sponsored trip to the REAL part of (insert country dependent on US tourism dollars) ." Go back to your stateroom and STFU.
//soapbox, on it.
///not sure what goes on this line here.

It seems like some people go from "a personal visit would be a nice gesture" to "his physical absence is an outrage!" in a nanosecond.

If only we could somehow harvest Outrage and use it to drive turbines... we could tell the Middle East to fark off, forever.

The headline from the Daily Mail article:

Boss of Carnival cruise ship adds insult to misery by going to basketball game as 4,000 suffer aboard 'stinking stricken ship' with urine-soaked carpets and sewage in cabins

Since when did the Mail start bagging on rich people? I thought they reserved their outrage for welfare queens and the Nanny State?

They had a fire, I'm sure it was started just to make those people miserable. Sounds like you would make a fine lawyer.

If there was a crippled aircraft carrier floating around the Pacific, you wouldn't see Obama or any other president going to a sporting event. Not that they're capable of doing anything to resolve the situation, but it's still bad juju to be out like that during a crisis.
