Ahhhh the Splendor of a vacation at sea with Carnival...they are the trailer trash of the cruise industry.

Sailed them twice before I was convinced!

BTW, why are taxpayers paying for a rescue ship? Will the Coast Guard or Navy send a bill?

You're right, a trap! Pirates have taken over the ship, and are waiting to take over the carrier when it arr-ives!

So where are all the Teapublicans now?!!? Them and Fox Noise were screaming a bunch nonsense lies that the Navy was 25 ships to India during Obama's current trip (totally made up and proven untrue) and here we have a very clear Govt. bail out of a private corporation that does not even pay taxes as their ships are not registered in the US, and not a peep out of them regarding the cost to send this aircraft carrier over to rescue a bunch of fat drunk Americans. Just how much will it cost to send a aircraft carrier off course for this BAIL OUT?!!?

Come one Teapublicans, speak up !

Off course? What was the course before, they were probably just goofing off browsing the internet or something.
Or doing a 'training mission'. Can't they just consider this a 'training mission'?

i would never recomend or travel on carnival cruise,our trip last year to mexico ended up in san frncisco,seattle and canada, every stop the weater was poor lots of rain they made u get of the ship in a rainy conditions with our kids getting soaked.the food on the cruise is the nastiest tasteing food we ever ate.the water slide was closed during our 7 days on the boat,there was human fesis floating in the kids pool,we tried to get off the boat in seatle but the captain stated that we would be fined due to some stupid law,7 days of hell on carnival and when asked for a credit they said sorry no credit,i don't know if carnival has heard of bad karma but it is cathing up to them and i hope they run in to more problems in the future for ripping us off in the amount of $3.600 very hard earned money.

99.9% carnival employees are illegal nationals from asian country's,they hire thease people to save money on wages,they make so much money from american cruise passangers they should only hire usa workers that way be someone can understand english,beware don't travel with carnival because your trip will turn into a carnival,
Amazing

If US workers were hired we could not afford to take the cruise.

Aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (love the sound of that) is on a humanitarian mission and only giving the stranded passengers SPAM and maybe water for survival. Surely you can find it in your cold, dark heart to help out your fellow Americans in their time of need? I wouldn't be opposed to the government charging the cruise line for reimbursement for the SPAM going rate @$3.50 each would you? Personally, I would rather go hungry than eat SPAM. As of cost of deploying the USS Ronald Reagan, taxpayers have already paid for that privilege.

Why would anyone cruise on Carnival? OK, once maybe but that should be it.

Friends don't let friends cruise with Carnival. One of the grossest and lowest class cruise lines.

Toni Sweet, of San Pedro, was frustrated Tuesday after relentlessly calling the cell phone of her cousin on board and getting no answer.

I'd go down with the ship before I ever let them bus my fat arse home through that lawless hellhole they call Mehico. With all the criminals regularly robbing passengers in cars and the pirates in the water, they'd have to helicopter me out of there. I'd even happily fly in the basket as long as they got me the heck out of there. But I'd never take a cruise that went anywhere near Mexico in the first place. BIG MISTAKE!!!

Wow. "Teapublicans"? "fat drunk Americans"? You really do have a way with hateful words. You've been watching Keith Olberman again, haven't you.
