So, these other ships that are delivering supplies could actually take some of the stranded passengers aboard, but they won't. Sweet.
They can't take them aboard. The world becomes a more argumentative place when the uninformed hastily complain.
The article doesn't explain why the stranded passengers must wait until their Wednesday arrival in Mexico to have access to running water and plumbing. Perhaps the cruise ship experts here could enlighten the unwashed masses.
I've been on two Carnival cruises in the last year and can say beyond a doubt that these ships sail at maximum capacity. "Taking on" additional passengers would merely transfer the problems to the other ship. Although these passengers were in no danger of going down (sinking), my personal definition of hell would be to spend several days without adequate food, water, or working toilets with 3,000 other people!
Carnival Cruises - where the affluent meet the effluent.
The compensation for a few days of hell has a nice outcome however. Reimbursement so cruise is free plus a new cruise at a later date.
Sorry, but after an experience like this, they could give me my money back and a free future cruise, and you still wouldn't see me on one of their cruise ships again.
