They might have to rename that ship the Carnival Katrina.
So how many lawyers will be waiting at the dock in Mobile?
When $$$ becomes your main goal instead of the health and safety of your guests, you deserve to get whats coming to you. I wouldn't trust anything Carnival says about what is really going on the ship.They will sugar coat this as much as they can. What happens when one engine goes down and you make the other one compensate for it. Only a matter of time before that one blows up as well. This is what really happened.
The Coast Guard should effectively ground all their vessels until they can pass an inspection with flying colors. Incidents like this should never happen. And all the while I would be willing to bet the crew were instructed to say there was nothing wrong.
The bus ride to New Orleans is stupid. The Mobile airport is excellent as are the hotels. We were just down to NOLA for the Mardi Gras parades. We saved a ton of money by flying into Mobile, renting a car (which was cheaper in Mobile) and driving the two hours into NOLA. Plus the flight times were better in Mobile and we stayed over night there on the way in and way out. The rooms were 50% cheaper. Go Mobile!
My wife is in mourning knowing that after this episode, the likelihood of getting me on a cruise ship is nil.
