All I have to say is they better have some security for the buses as this would be perfect and easy target for a terrorist or drug cartel.

How generous, their giving those folks another cruise of equal or LOWER value, and all they had to do to get it was spend a week of vacation time going though heck.

My God they have to know that by the time most of these folks get to take time off work for another vacation, prices will have gone up so they won't even be entitled to the same cruise they have previously paid full price for.

Their not being nice to these folks, their giving them the finger and making money at the same time. They know many are never going to be able to take another cruise, so this is the perfect way to give those folks NOTHING.

They should at least have handed them back their money since they hardly delivered the cruise they promised.

Carnival Cruise Lines are just cheap jerks and don't deserve future customers.

Nothing left to do but get hammered and screw.

i think that the crew did a good job, however these cruise ships should be more prepared. and because of this event they will. Good job to every body who was on it.

the lure of the cruise ship! decks awash with vomit, chased by pirates, outbreaks of Eboli and Yellow fever, all part of the romantic experience aboard the SS Salmonella.
