I think all cruise lines are going to take a sh-t kicking after this one,especially Carnival.That's the 3rd incident in two years that we know about.

I have been on almost 20-cruises and have never experienced a problem.

After an air crash, would you ever dare fly again?

After an automobile accident, would you ever go anyplace by car again?

These incidents, although severe and traumatic for the passengers, are rare.

I am going on a cruise again in March.

Well, if I were in the plane I doubt I would fly again but that was probably not what you meant.

Your point is well made. These things happen. Life is not always perfectly safe. I've never been on a cruise but would not turn the opportunity down just because of something like this.

The point of my post; is it possible to clean up the Carnival Triumph to where it’s sanitary again?

Carnival could re-name the ship, so you’ll never know if you’re on the same ship that had raw sewage soaking all walls/floors/ceilings and kitchen of the ship.

Because the ship (and most all cruise ships) is governed by Bahamas Maritime Authority, they don’t have to abide by US law.

If this was a house in the US, it would be condemned and torn down.

My in-laws were supposed to leave on that ship next thursday. Needless to say their cruise was canceled. I also knew 5 people on that ship.


Above all, brothers, do not swear oaths by heaven, by earth, or by any other object. Instead, let your "Yes" mean yes and your "No" mean no! Otherwise, you may fall under condemnation.

"While under tow to a shipyard in Norfolk, VA the Carnival Triumph started taking on water. The tow lines were cut by the tugs captain and the proud ship sank to the bottom of the Atlantic in 1600 feet of water. Carnival announced that itwould not be worth raising the ship."

What I can't understand is that cruiseships don't have another engine coupled with a generator somewhere else on the ship to at least provide some electricity.Nevermind a/c but keep the kitchen and toilets running.This shouldn't be too difficult for Engineers to figure out.

I wouldn't even hesitate to go on another cruise...though I'd probably stay away from Carnival. Royal Caribbean is great.
