They are getting a full refund plus travel expenses. Refunds on all on ship purchases except gift shop and casino then are getting a voucher for another carnaval cruise of same value. My question is that futre value transferable? Can i sell it because no way i be getting on a carnival anytime in near future

I'd stay away from Carnival also. Keep in mind, they're just one of ten cruise lines owned by the same company (Carnival Corporation & PLC). Here are some of the ones you may be familiar with:

-Carnival Cruise Lines
-Costa Cruises (Yes, as in the Costa Concordia that capsized last year)
-Holland America
-Princess Cruises

The fact that the same company that owns Carnival owns Costa scares me enough to stay away from them.

Things on the ship are getting desperate. They are under tow, but are not going to reach port until Thursday. Originally they were going to be flown home from Mexico, but now, it sounds like they might be bused back from Mobile.

Why the idiots don't tow them to Galveston, I've no idea.

The one and only cruise me and my family have been on was on the Carnival Triumph. We had a blast with no problems whatsoever.

Spareparts, you should know that being stuck on a cruise ship with no power, running water, and limited food is still better than being stuck in Ohio during the winter.

I just remembered there is a shipyard not far from Mobile in Pascagoula. This makes sense to go there, as that garbage scow needs professional help, given it's recent engine problems.

I hope we see some videos of the inside of the cruise ship once this is all done.

I want to know if some of the claims of crap and urine in the hallways and running down the walls are true or if people on the boat are exaggerating.

There are also conflicting stories from what I hear. Some people have contacted friends and family back home and are quoted as saying they are "fine and enjoying the extended vacation". So I guess we'll see.

Those are the people that know that there's nothing they can do about the situation so they might as well make the best of it and enjoy themselves. Grab a book and chill out on the deck for a few extra days. Everything will be fine.

Just another reason I won't do a cruise. I know some people like them and that's great. There are different types of trips and vacations for everyone. So if you enjoy them, I've got nothing against that.

However, my personal opinion (feel free to rip me for this if you want).

I am not going to pay that much money to spend all that time on a big floating city doing most of the things I can do at home. I can eat good food, gamble, and do lots of fun activities without paying to do it a cramped room on a ship in the ocean. When you do stop somewhere, you only get a few hours in a port - not my idea of seeing a town. I am not much of a beach and sun person anyways but I get this is a relaxing, do nothing type vacation. Just not for me.

With that said, this is a nightmare. I can't believe the conditions. Kudos to those making the best of it though. How come no one is out there with fishing poles trying to catch some dinner? :)

They don't have plumbing, so I'm sure the boat is a mess. But then again, it's a Carnival ship...they could leave it as is, sail next week and nobody would know.

They might as well trash the boat or at least change its name. Nobody is gonna wanna book a cruise on Triumph ever again.
