Cruised to Grand Turk, went into town just to get a picture standing next to a sign that said Cockburn.

I was all excited that this was going to be another Russian warship thread, but then I saw it was only one of the Carnival floating petri dishes and was sad.

How many fires do they normally have per cruise?  6? 7?
Costanza

The Ukrainians have gone too far this time!

...and here I thought those things were like spoilers on a Nissan, completely pointless and just to make it look cool.

I don't know anything about maritime retirement communities, never been on one and probably never will.

Ooh, a buddy of mine is on a cruise right now....

Why did Carnival Cruises get the works?
 
2022-05-26 5:35:28 PM  
It's all coming together! They can take those dead from Covid and toss them into the fire for a cremation at sea.

I read the headline and was really hoping it was going to be Muskova 2.0.  Then I saw the tag and was thoroughly disappointed.  Oh well it's only a matter of time.

Nice boat.

Carnival Freedom's emergency response team quickly activated and extinguished a fire inside the ship's funnel while the ship was in Grand Turk.

So the emergency response team started and then extinguished the fire?!

Carnival has better sailors than the Russian navy. Who knew?

Dammit, Jessie. What did you do?

Yet another reason you will never ever ever find me on a cruise ship.

It's an interesting fire. Carbon deposits maybe?

It was only a 3-hour tour.

"Captain, Coronavirus is onboard!"

"Well that's just great."

"And it brought monkeypox as its companion!"

"I don't like where this is going."

"And monkeypox is playing with matches!"

"Dammit, man, who pissed off Poseidon this time? Were the deckhands making blowhole jokes about the dolphins again?

I never really thought about it before but it makes sense. They burn oil not uranium.

They certainly smoke less than a Russian aircraft carrier.

So. I go to the article and this pops up. Great marketing, yo.

Think of the bright side, the heat of the fire surely killed any viruses in the ship's environment.

Same. Second thought was hoping it was Manchin's yacht.

Then I saw the Florida tag and was disappointed.

Where there are large boats, there are eventually distasteful seamen jokes.

The fark? I hate this world. Thankfully i'm taking a vacation for the next 5 days from the hermit life at home to the hermit life with my parents.

Crosses fingers the fishing will be better there.

The European river and coastal cruises can be very nice and intimate.
/not now of course.  We're waiting at least another year.

I love how some MBA genius saves money one quarter by skipping maintenance.   Looks good for shareholders I suppose, but kinda sucks next quarter when you spend 5x that in refunds, engine replacement and fines.

/talked to a Coast Guard BO(Boarding Officer) who was on the boarding the last few times this happened, said that poop cruise had worse than 3rd world conditions on board.  Pooo everywhere
//Behind Royal Caribbean, they are the #2 cruise line ;)

Pronounced 'Coburn,' fooling no one.

"Lots of passengers were distressed, and there was chaos at first. But, then, once everyone got to the muster station, order was restored."

This is why you don't get trashed before your cruise -- so you can remember the safety instructions.

When did Grand Turks become a part of Florida? Or vice versa?

I've heard that pineapple juice is the answer for that.

Blame Canada Ukraine.

They're the new Entebbe Israelis.
