Two short stories.

On the first sea day of my first cruise, the inaugural season for Carnival Triumph, going out of NYC to Canada, all of a sudden the engines stopped and we were drifting without power for about an hour. The cruise director told us that they "test restarting the engines" every month, when everyone knew the engines stalled and left us adrift.

On Crown Princess, the cruise before mine was its listing incident. I was watching the news to see about a tornado that ripped half the roof off my high school (yes, a tornado in New York), when I saw the news article about the ship I was supposed to go on in two days, the ship had listed way over. We got on it 2 days late but the cruise sucked.

And a quick question for Mike, any particular reason for dedicating this thread?
