To better improve the brand and help future customers get over the Triumph's recent spotty history Carnival is going to have a contest to rename the ship.

Jesus. Carnival is being sent a very clear message. They really just need to pack it in.

As for the Triumph, torpedo the bastard. Turn it into a reef.

Considering today's events, perhaps the Carnival Triumph should swap names with the Carnival Freedom.

I see many "smart" clicks in your future....

\Also, MUST add the Poseidon to the list
\\the one with Gene Hackman on board, not the one with Fergie
\\\though, would make more sense if it was the one with Fergie, that movie was a bomb

Hey WKRG, maybe it would be a good idea to make some mention of just where the fsck you are.

So book your cruise now before we finish tanking the company, because we've run out of middle class folk who can afford this sh*t!

You know, it never occurred to me before that a ship could be suicidal.

With the way they pack people in those ships, renaming it the the Wilhelm Gustloff II might be more apropo.

Good one- virtually nobody remembers it at all despite being on the top 5.

I'll add the Wilhelm Gustlotf, another one nobody's ever heard of despite it being by far the deadliest shipwreck in history.
 
2013-04-03 05:52:22 PM
Ship now has one or two new holes for poop to be let out of.

Mobile Alabama said they had nice facilities for such a big ship, too bad a 40 Mph wind gust ruined that reputation.

/Quick to the Federal Congress to sign a bill allowing for storm recovery money to be put out immediately.
//30 Billion dollars should cover it.
