I watched all of the Triumph coverage from start to finish on CNN plus interviewed a passenger that was on the ship during the incident, and I really don't believe it was anywhere near as bad as the media played it up to be.

They made it sound as if everyone was stuck sleeping in sewage, and that wasn't true. They took a few isolated incidents of bad things that happened on that trip and extrapolated it out to make it seem as if that was what everyone on the ship was experiencing, and it just did not happen that way. I thought it was "yellow journalism" at its worst.
