Default Carnival Glory clogged shower

We were on Carnival's Glory last month and I was the first in the shower. I just about flooded the whole bathroom due to a clogged shower drain. Yuk!

But that's not the bad part. After the drain had been unclogged, my son went in the bathroom and yelled out, "GROSS!!!!!"

The dude who had unclogged the shower had deposited the clump of icky, gooey, slimy black hair in our nice little clean silver bathroom waste pail!

Man, every time I hear a story about a clogged shower or backed-up toilet, I get the chills. I think how often this happens on a cruise ship and figure the law of odds is against my avoiding it much longer. Ewwwwww!

What was it his hair? Decided to have a quick trim when in there<g>

I agree gross scenario,, other peoples reminders of them in your cabin.

So on get off day we should maybe have over the other announcements, ..

"When passengers disembark from ship pleasemake sure to take all of you out of the cabin" If not maintenance please cremate their remains in the whatever, before our new friends come onboard.

Sure, why not! Both are fine by me. Although I have heard my son and his friends talk to girls starting out with, "Dude, ...."

Kids these days.

Crabs - who's got crabs lol. It is a rather cute crab at that!

I would much rather have a gross of crabs than a gross of hair in my shower.

I can see the ad in capers now "Got Crabs - Carnival Cares" - Blue Ointment - 50% off in our gift shop!

Ok children - that's enough - let's get back to the original topic - finding 144 hairs in the shower drain - should you get a refund from the cruiseline? What if you only find 143 hairs - are you SOL or 145 - is that a bonus coupon?

TTFN Jennifer

I know for a fact that all cruise lines have a Hair Clogged Shower Drain policy. The compensation is determined by the number of hairs and a gooey factor determined by a gooeymeter. Check the fine print on your documents, its right after the section on how they guarantee you will not gain weight on a cruise.

So convert - do you have to bring your own gooeymeter or are they in all the staterooms?

I never gain weight on a cruise - but my scales are always off by about ten pounds when I get home - go figure :o)

Gooeymeters are provided by the cruise line and are manufactured by the same company that manufactured your scale.
