Default Trouble for Gripers Cruise

There are several small problems with the upcoming Gripers Cruise. Nothing we can't overcome.
The ship- our cruise line has declared bankruptcy. Passengers have all been brought to the cruise lines private resort in Haiti and have been left off their ships. All is well except for no food, shelter , communications, toilet facilities, or transportation from the island. The ships are already being stripped by salvage yards.
Out TA- Sam our TA has taken our deposit money, gotten a sex change operation and full body tatooing and is now Osie Osbourne's sex toy.
Our pre cruise hotel has fallen on bad times and is now renting rooms by the hour for afternoon "quickies". I room "massages" are now available.
Our precruise restaurant was closed . The sign said something about being open after the fumigation.
Our cruise transportation fooled around with his little luggage scam with the wrong woman. A former WWE and WCW female wrestler has broken both his legs and he is unable to drive.
Lastly our group leader has absconded with all our remaining funds and was last seen in an airport with three 21 year old waitresses from Hooters and tickets for RIO.

Blame for this streak of bad luck has been placed on the fact that Rick's lucky hat used up all it's good luck when he hit it big in the casino on his last cruise.

Keep looking for status updates on this board .

Oh, I forgot, our travel insurance carrier has rejected our claim. They said since we were all known Gripers prior to the cruise the prexisting condition clause applies.

I'm stuck in Port-Au-Prince slums with armed bandits shooting rats for food and beggars climbing all over me. I haven't seen any food for days. The ship has been scrapped, the TA is gone, the money has been pilfered and the hotel is crawling with wretched scoundrels.

I'm having the time of my LIFE ! ! !! !

Regards,
Thomas
