namatad: maddogdelta: meanmutton: What more do people want?

Ships with crews that know how to operate and maintain a seaworthy vessel?

this is why you only sail on newer ships. first couple years.
TADA
Less of a chance of engine fires. Less of a chance of old drunk captain on list last voyage.
Newer tech than 10 or 20 years ago.


Ha-rumph... yes.

They should have known what they were getting into. Going on a cruise is risky. You are hundreds of mile out at sea. The big safety drill at the beginning is a clue. This thing might sink.

So it seems the passengers were looking for the easy life, but the cruise company thought it was all just a game. And whether you're looking for a midsummer's daydream or just a boy's night out, it's time to fight the good fight when you lay it on the line only to find there's somebody out there looking to rip you off.

just_intonation: Either way, I've decided that my SO and I will *never* cruise on Carnival, no matter what the outcome.  Too many bad experiences by family and friends related to me to want to take a chance on it, at least with *my* money.


I have been on a bunch of RCCL and one Carnival Cruise.
You get what you pay for. 
And more importantly you are surrounded by people who got what the paid for.
Pay more, unless you want to be on a ship with a lot of cheap, fat white people.

scottydoesntknow: At least settling a lawsuit will let future passengers know that if the company farks up bad and you suffer for it, they'll pay you in the end. If this gets dismissed, all it's saying is that you're taking ALL of the risk when sailing with Carnival.


Well, no. I think Carnival is saying that their Class Action Waiver (section 13 of their ticket terms) governs and disallows the 3000-member class action lawsuit. For the class action law suit, at least, they want to dismiss it and make every plaintiff file individually against them.

Don't know how why they want to dismiss the other two. Would have to read their motions to find out.

scottydoesntknow: vudutek: If nothing else, I hope the visible hand of the free market gives Carnival a much needed smackdown.

That's what I'm thinking. This lawsuit won't float, so the only way to hurt them is by not purchasing tickets and telling everyone else you know to not purchase tickets.

At least settling a lawsuit will let future passengers know that if the company farks up bad and you suffer for it, they'll pay you in the end. If this gets dismissed, all it's saying is that you're taking ALL of the risk when sailing with Carnival.


Yeah and then they'll knock 5 bucks off their ticket price and fill the ship up no problem at all.

Oh, and this:
