Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival Cruise has been all over the news lately regarding one of its crippled ships.

It's been a week, and that ship has finally docked and the Carnival Cruise passengers are now talking.

No one was injured when all this took place, but one passenger was put on another ship to be taken to safety as they were on dialysis.

Why all the cruise passengers couldn't transfer to that ship, I don't know.

It's reported that a fire started in the engine room.  Ok, fires happen sometimes. 

However, the passengers are saying that if staying on deck for 5 days wasn't bad enough, the Carnival Cruise ship had urine and feces all over the floor, and they had to poop in plastic bags.

Aren't these ships more equipped for emergencies?

Even more scary, is Carnival Cruise knew the ship had problems.

Carnival has canceled a dozen more planned voyages aboard the Triumph and acknowledged the crippled ship had been plagued by other mechanical problems in the weeks before the engine-room blaze. The National Transportation Safety Board has opened an investigation.

How will knowing that Carnival Cruise knew about other problems, yet let the ship leave affect your decision to use their cruise lines?

I think I'll pass.
