robohobo: Every President we've had has vacationed in the middle of one shiatstorm or another. No difference.
basemetal: Meh, those cruises just don't look like a great get away in the first place. Crammed all into a boat with thousands of people just does not appeal to me./and then there are things like this
Gilligann: So i'm reading the comments and one in particular stood out.If things are so bad aboard ship why hasn't the President sent the Coast Guard to evacuate the passangers. Oh!! wait since Obama sold the Coast guard to BP for a $100,000.00 it is now the responsibility of BPs CO to take care of that.Huh?Did I miss something or is this just the usual crazy we've come to expect from the right?
acefox1: Is it just my imagination or do these Carnival Cruise ships become disabled from engine problems and fires on a fairly regular basis?/Just learned that Costa Concordia was owned & operated by a Carnival subsidiary.
heavymetal: While I don't think there is anything he could personally do at the exact moment to help, you would think that a company with that many cruise ships would have a better plan of action for situations like this.
DarkSoulNoHope: It makes me wonder if Carnival is going to allow the "Goth Cruise" again due to lost passenger revenue from this incident.
fusillade762: The headline from the Daily Mail article:Boss of Carnival cruise ship adds insult to misery by going to basketball game as 4,000 suffer aboard 'stinking stricken ship' with urine-soaked carpets and sewage in cabinsSince when did the Mail start bagging on rich people? I thought they reserved their outrage for welfare queens and the Nanny State?
TinyFist: basemetal: Meh, those cruises just don't look like a great get away in the first place. Crammed all into a boat with thousands of people just does not appeal to me./and then there are things like thisSOOOOO this. I wanted to get away for awhile, thought about flying to some city in some country I'd never been to to hang out for a few days (my typical vacation). My cruise enthusiast friends/family (read: evil people who hate me) talked me into taking a cruise."it's AMAZING! And you get to go to a lot of countries instead of just one!"Almost flew home in the third port. There's just SO MANY PEOPLE and you're stuck around them all the time. And the ports suck donkeyballs, too. Oh, look, another Margaritaville, Harley Shop, Hard Rock, and dozens of jewelry shops! Belize is so incredible!!!Screw cruises and the dipshiat "travelers" aboard them./yes, even you. You who is reading this confused, saying "but WE got away from the touristy stuff and took a Cruise sponsored trip to the REAL part of (insert country dependent on US tourism dollars) ." Go back to your stateroom and STFU.//soapbox, on it.///not sure what goes on this line here.
BSABSVR: Ooh, Ned Stark and bel4sucks are here now, too . Massive E-peens are gonna be pissing all over this thread!
rengav: I read somewhere that Carnival is refunding the passengers' money and giving them a free cruise in the future. Like anyone is going to claim that free cruise after this fiasco...I sincerely hope that the passengers sue Carnival for damages, suffering, etc. and win. And I wish I was a lawyer so I could be on the team and cash in as well.
davidphogan: He should have swam out to it and towed it back in himself. That selfish bastard.
