It caught on fire several years back...then they sold it to another cruise line. I think it is a Costa or Norwegian cruise ship now. I thnk..althought I am not 100 percent sure. I did a little research online and found the answer but I forgot.

The Tropicale was sent to Costa and was refurbished and is now sailing as the CostaTropicale - doing basically Mediterranean itineraries.

While the "caught fire" is technically correct it was a very minor fire in the engine room and was of very little inconvenance to the passengers and did not endanger them. Thought I would point that out so nobody gets the idea of a flaming cruiseship like the Andra Dora. As part of the upgrading programs and re-alignment the Tropicale was completely refurbished and transferred to the Costa line which is part of Carnival Corp. She has been quite a hit siling with this line.

It may have seemed like little inconvenience to the outside people, but I saw some show...worlds worst vacations or something like that. Apparenmtly it was misserable for the people who were on the boat. No food for a couple days, no power. It sounded pretty bad and the people who experienced it were very upset..which is understandable. When you go on a cruise, you are going to be pampered..rest and relaxation. It didn't sound like that is what they got. However Carnival did make good and offered a fully paid cruise to all the passengers.

They did not go without food. The news media focused on less than a dozen people who were screaming how they almost died and of course needed to see an attorney to right this terrible wrong. In the background you saw people having a wonderful time and making do with some inconviences.

The Tropicale was our first cruise, 3 years back I guess. We took her into the Panama Canal...fantastic.

Just curious, anyone know if she still listed to one side?

The TROPICALE was my first CArnival cruise (Mexican Riviera) after having survived the worst 1st cruise of my life on a french ship (Paquet Line) repositioning from Miami to Vancouver. I was hooked for life.
