It is not 100% about the money. We would just like Carnival to admit that they made a poor decision to let this boat sail in such poor condition. During our trip is was suprising how many of the crew members were more than willing to discuss the rediculous problems that they were having. We felt bad for the crew, they did their best to make the best of a bad situation. It was as close to "mutany on the high seas" as I ever want to see again. There were a LOT of unhappy cruisers. It was a running joke that the only thing left to go wrong was for the boat to sink. That's pretty sad.
