What was I thinking? I must have skimmed that article and had Funship 2.0 on the brain. Somehow I perceived the article as saying that Carnival was spending money on the Funship upgrades to entice customers back after the Triumph incident.

You're right green_rd, this is OLD news. Actually, when the Triumph incident itself happened, media was all over this "Bad News" IIRC I either received an email from Carnival, or, read a Carnival article posted here only a few weeks after the Triumph incident stating the 300M investment mentioned above. Maybe this "Good" news is only making it's way to the media now. IIRC, some, if not all of this 300M has already been spent and the upgrades are either completed, or very close?
