It's just a ploy to plug the Blu-Ray release of "Life of Pi."

Just wait until they release the live Bengal tigers in the corridors.

VenomousDuck: Carnival cruises are like a giant floating Wal-Mart only less fun.


We need a "People of Carnival. Cruises " website.

Walker: Yeah, that means you lost power. And to those that think no elevators aren't a big deal, you fail to realize how big as cruise ship is. They go from deck one to deck 14.


Nonsense. The sewage in the hallways is just part of Carnivals rolling brown out emergency power system.

Mugato: MNguy: The tiger is actually Pi's inner spirit.

Oh God, it's one of those movies? I almost rented that.


SPOILER, jeez!

The tiger actually is Pi's evil father.

I did live this in a prophetic epiphany this very day. I awoke this morning with SAVAGE diarrhea. I came in to work and had "minor leakage", then, my Dreamweaver CS6 busted so I re-installed it. My guts were in an uproar, so I went to the nearest CVS drugstore for some Imodium and I walked through the US Navy Memorial to get there. I even paused to notice the lyric on the step,

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!


It had all the elements: Technical difficulties, barely contained feces, and people in peril on the sea. My mind, it is blown.

Guests on the current voyage will receive a refund equivalent to three days of the voyage and 50 percent off a future cruise.

How about a full refund and you can keep your coupon?

Kris Anderson, a passenger on the ship and reporter for CNN affiliate WREG, said Thursday passengers have been told they will be allowed off the ship to enjoy the island while flight arrangements are made.

Something tells me that neither the passengers nor the islanders are going to find that arrangement too charming. These cruise ship ports of call are carefully set up to have exactly X hours' worth of stuff for easily bored tourists to do, and the friendly waitstaff and bartenders and tchotchke-sellers are all busy doing other things when the ship is supposed to be gone. I'm not saying they're third-world hellholes; I'm just saying that once you've walked up and down the main tourist drag and you've still got a few days to kill, you'll wish you were in some more exciting place, like Pierre, SD.

I for one, would not mind being left behind in St. Maarten. Much better than being stuck in Newark.

The passengers will look back and have a good laugh once they've settled in The New World.

ginandbacon: I have to say, as someone that worked selling high end academic tours, the price Carnival offers always led me to believe that *something* might get shortchanged on those cruises. I'm not saying you get what you pay for, but you get what you pay for.
