That sets a great legal precedent

What are they complaining about?  They got like 3 extra days of cruising for free!

The Muthaship: The way Admiralty law runs, they'll probably win.

Sure, but if the lawyers for the class are smart, they just wait for the Judge to leave room, declare the ship abandoned, press the jury into service, lock opposing counsel in the brig and then put a new hat and call each other "Commodore".

If they are smart...

Plus camping, which is nice.

Hard to dig a cathole in those hard, hard decks, though.

That's what the poop deck is for, duh.

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.

katerbug72: I say they lay it on the line and fight the good fight. Never surrender and hold on.

/that's all I got

Well, that describes their customer demographic.  They're young, they're wild, they want to be free.

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:
