OK the ship had a major unforseen mishap. these passengers didnt have the vacation they planned or visioned. but why the media coverage they recieved? step by step video of the docking etc. they are not heroes ...nor celebelties... nor floating in icy waters with just a life vest...not stranded on gilligans island....a true american hero was killed and buried last week Chris Kyle...many more military are returning from warzones and the media just glances at them...whitney houston gets a nation wide flags flying at half mast...ourmedia coverage is screwed up

finally others get it too! these people are going back to their homes etc. look at the displaced people from natural disasters. small businesses that have had hardships. and yes all the returning military with little or no fanfare. those are the ones we need to hear about.they are getting full refund,anotherr cruise in the future,500.00 dollars plus im sure lawsuits will come about too

Heroes, no but victims, yes. I wouldn't sell their experience short. I am sure is was full of kinds of disgusting things. Sh*tting in bags and eating onion sandwiches does sound awful. The uncertainty and mass hysteria alone can be very stressful and frightening. I have spent many years on the water and getting stranded like that is one of my biggest fears, right up there with sinking and shark attacks.

It was a major inconvenience, nothing more. No need for mass hysteria. They were on a luxury cruise ship and had food & shelter. Oh no, they had to do potty in a bucket for a few days. Oh no, their ice cream melted.
The only reason there was mass media coverage and why these people see themselves as victims is because we are a nation of victims, running to therapists and counselors and swallowing medications for every speed bump that life throws our way. We are a nation of cry babies.
