Default What passes for cruise news these days

I have noticed the cruise news scene is a little quiet these days but, really, do we NEED this to be reported? Do you care?

Cruise Ship Waiter Assaults Maitre d' on Carnival Magic
6:47 p.m. EST

A maitre d' on Carnival Magic was assaulted yesterday evening by one of the ship's dining room waiters.

In a statement provided to _________, Carnival said that "another employee witnessed the assault and held the dining room waiter until shipboard security arrived. The maitre d' is recovering and is expected to be back at work in the next day or two." The attack occurred in the main dining room during the late-seating dinner.

The dining room waiter, who was not identified, has been fired.

The line did not include information on the cause of the incident. We've e-mailed Carnival for comment.

Magic -- which is currently sailing a six-night Mexico cruise out of Galveston, the first cruise from its new Texas homeport -- has had its share of troubles this week. The new ship had to adjust its itinerary on Tuesday because one of its stern thrusters was in need of repair.
