The Bad Travel Experience To End All Bad Travel Experiences

The bad travel experience of all bad travel experiences has happened again.  This time, to another set of hapless cruise travelers.  The line is Carnival, the cruise operator is British, and

  • There were only five working bathrooms for 3,000 people.
  • No one could leave the ship while it was being towed to Mobile, Alabama.
  • People ended up having to do their business in plastic baggies and leaving the baggies outside their cabin doors for collection.

Wasn’t it not so long ago that a cruise ship sank after hitting rocks just off the coast of Italy?

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction:  The name of the cruise ship with the 3000 stranded passengers was the Carnival Triumph.

If self had written a story about 3000 people being stranded on a cruise ship with only five working bathrooms, and had decided to name her ship Triumph, people would have said:  That writer is being satirical!

After this, self is never ever ever ever going to go on a cruise.  No, never.  Wild horses couldn’t drag etc.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
