He'll be scrubbing the poop deck now.

What a crappy day for him.

I was going to correct you with "swabbing" until I looked up "swabbing the deck" on urbandictionary....

That's a step up from being on their ships.

It's sink or swim for carnival cruise lines right now, and I think they're stuck somewhere in the middle..

I don't know about the company, but he'll be just fine... I actually didn't know he also owned the Miami Heat until I read the article.

I'm sure he got a golden lifejacket

They should put him on one of their cruise ships for punishment

Better yet, a Chicago River tour boat the next time the Dave Matthews Band is in town.

Maybe they should just turn their ships into prison barges.

Technically, the CEO and chair are better off as separate people. I can only see this as a positive.

FTA: Arison, 63, is stepping down as chief executive officer after 34 years

So basically this guy was 29 when he became CEO? How many under-30yr-old Fortune 500 CEOs are there these days?

/ Thanks alot Obama!

They sent him right down the poop chute.

Obvious tag stuck on a cruise ship?

hah! I was wondering if I used the correct term after submitting my comment, but I'm kinda glad I kept it the way I did.

Nice boat.

Yeah.  Hope it's really made of gold so he'll sink to the bottom of the sea, amirite?

FTA:
Part of it, anyway. Arison, 63, is stepping down as chief executive officer after 34 years, though he'll remain as chairman, Carnival said on Tuesday.


I might be wrong, but I think we have a failure to understand the article - subby!

Long overdue!  His father, Ted who founded the company, would be ashamed of Mickey's behavior when the Costa Concordia sank and all the other Carnival cruise ships suffered issues due to lack of proper maintenance.  His departure from an operational role should have occurred a long time ago.  Hopefully the next executive can set things straight before a Carnival ship flounders in the middle of ocean taking 4K people to the bottom.

They will be fine.  Strange fact. bookings are low and prices are down on Carnival, but they are high and up on all the lines that Carnival owns.

Yeah. Those boats can hold 6000.

Have you checked the bookings and prices for Costa..... you know... those guys Carnival owns with the ship stuck on the rocks off the coast of Italy.

Unfortunately a large cruise ship can only reasonably load about 2000 people in life boats over a 45 minute period while the ship is going down. Any type of list and half the boats become unusable reducing the number to 1000.  So if one of the super large liners with 6K people on board goes down quickly... expect to find about 4K people at the bottom.

I'd say they flushed him down the toilet...but they aren't working at Carnival.

Becoming CEO at 29 just MIGHT have something to do with the fact that dear old dad was the founder. It obviously wasn't for his business genius.

gblive: Any type of list and half the boats become unusable reducing the number to 1000


[Citation Needed] After Titanic went down, there were a bunch of changes to allow the davits to deploy lifeboats on a listing ship, as that was an issue in that accident. Nothing is going to help when the list is severe, but "any type of list" is hardly the case today, as I understand it.

Also,  Titanic took 3 hours to sink, and Costa Concordia took over 7, so I also call into question your 45 minute timeframe for anything less than a torpedo or well planned terrorist attack that breaks the spine of the ship almost instantly. Competently handled, I think you could get almost everybody to the boats in most collision situations. Of course, this would mean having a well-trained crew who gave a shiat, and that has always been the weakest link in these accidents.

It's a good start, but when are they going they going to hose off the rest of the BLIP?

It's poop decks all the way down.
