You sure about that? Pretty sure that's the same boat we were on for a cruise out of NOLA in 2010. Maybe they transferred ports. It was a shithole then. The AC blew hot air for about a 36 hour stretch at one point.

re: Carnival Triumph stranded in the GoM


misread your post. i though you meant a couple of weeks ago. I know see it was a couple of weeks after a different issue. the triumph was the long itinerary ship fo Carnival until about a year and a half ago when it moved to Galveston for short itineraries.

Did you experience the tipping that she did? She said they all had to go to their rooms for life jackets.

Friends don't let friends sail on Carnival. Unless you're in college and it's spring break--then you'll fit right in.

Any time carnival gives a full refund the situation must be absolutely horrible.

Just saw an update... They had a phone call recorded from one of the passengers. Evidently people are going to the bathroom in little baggies and placing them outside of their doors when they are done.

I was on a Carnival ship (my first cruise actually), and we got stuck on a sandbar off the coast of Mexico years ago. It was the Holiday, I think. They had to get everybody out of the ship and ferry us across the water on little boats, then we had to take a bus to the airport. Then they flew us home, and we had to get a cab to our car. fricking sucked. As compensation, they gave us half off of a future cruise.


We were on the same boat I remember it got stuck right off the beach in Playa del Carmen and we got an extra day on the beach and some other free stuff bc of it. But yeah, the adventure to get to the Cancun airport at 5 in the morning sucked...I felt like a navy seal about to storm enemy coastline on those old ferries when it was still dark out

And then we had to fly Carnival's sketchy airline, Miami Air I think it was??

re: Carnival Triumph stranded in the GoM


Hahaha yep. We spent the day out in playa del Carmen. And when we got to the airport, our luggage looked like arse because the guys were just throwing it off the truck.

And yep, it was Miami Air. Sketchy was my first thought as well.

A cruise is nothing more than a cheap getaway imo. Honeymoons need to be special and without a shite ton of friends. People who go on cruises for honeymoons always bring a bunch of friends.

Trust me, I agree. I feel bad when I hear someone went on a cruise for their honeymoon.

Did a Week on the Carnival Conquest 5 or 6 years ago. No surprise here. Those boats that take week long sails NEVER stop. They dock for the ONE DAY. Half a day at that. To change out passengers and baggage and any crew. I can only imagine how LITTLE time they have for needed repairs/maintenance. Because not going out is not an option!!!

Aren't there drains on the deck? Just use that and let it run down the walls of someone else's room.

Or use the showers like Carnival suggested

I bet husbands were telling their wives "See it IS ok to pee in the shower, they said so"
