Giving each passenger $500 for the "pain and suffering" caused by this debacle was an insult!. Every cruise line wants "good publicity" about their cruise business. It will take several years for people to want to go on a Carnival Cruise. There is a saying, "that one dissatisfied customer, will tell ten friends and aquaintances about their cruise experience". Carnival Cruise Line has a major "public relations problem".
I agree with you. The cruise line can say what they want but it's less rare when the cruise line has had many ship fires including a engine fire on the carnival Splendor out of Long Beach. That was in November of 2010 and should have prepared the cruise line of this type of emergency.
