Default Carnival Triumph " Disaster"

I love to cruise.I love Carnival. Triumph problems will not stop me cruising.
The cries of I'll never cruise again get me. Think about this.
They could have been on an airplane at 30,000 feet when it broke.
They would definitely never fly again.
3 hours for a hot dog is a considerable trade-off.

Did you see how many Carnival robes left the ship?
Ship Happens.

Yes ship happens and it's very easy to handle when it happens to someone else.
Not so easy for those on the scene.

I think the OP wasn't implying things were great.

I think the OP meant these people got back to wherever, but if they were in a plane and it came down....they'd not be back. What they went thru was the tradeoff

Hurricane Sandy was a "Disaster". Ditto Katrina.
The Asian Tsunami was a "Disaster". Other words are used in these cases like "Tragedy" and "Catastrophe".

The Triumph cruise was an "inconvenience". A damned big, and certainly unpleasant one, but still just an "inconvenience".
No one DIED. No one was even injured, to the best of my knowledge. It was just people who expected to be spoiled were instead not spoiled. They had to instead had to deal with adversity. Some "dealt" better than others.
The only disaster is that Carnival Corp. insurance underwriters will have to pay out huge.

Was there sewage on the floor? Maybe. Dont walk there.
If you MUST HAVE your hairspray from your cabin that badly, then dont whine if the floor squishes. You made the choice to walk there.

.

I agree that it was an inconvenience and not a disaster.

If I had been on that ship i would have considered it to be a Huge Inconvenience.

Some folks have different definitions for " disasters " and "being inconvenienced."
I'm glad I wasn't on the ship, hope I never have to be in that situation but if it ever happens, I think I have enough sense to make the best of it and not be a complete idiot the way some folks were acting. It that's the biggest adventure these folks ever have, they basically will have lived a dull live when they get older.
And to those who cry " I'll never cruise again, especially on Carnival." I say --fine--just don't cruise and go on with your life. In the end and long run, it isn't going to affect Carnival to any major degree , nor the cruising industry in general.
The way some make it sound, Carnival should be shut down., cruises ships are nothing but floating disasters waiting to happen, etc. Anyone who feels that way should go with their feelings and move on.
Most of us will continue to cruise and enjoy our cruises, in spite of all the hype, especially that dredged up by the media who show the same scenes and same people over and over.
Cruise or not cruise-- each person's choice to make--make it and rightly or wrongly, live with your choice.
I would dare say that Carnival has some very interesting video they could release about some of the actions of some of the passengers should they grow the back bone to release it.
Happy sails to all who will continue to cruise, happy whatever to all who won't cruise again and to all ---peace !
