You all know that I am a proponent of cruising, and that isn’t going to change. But the Carnival Triumph situation sounds seriously sucktacular beyond description. I can only imagine the frustration, and my heart goes out to the passengers….AND the crew. Having been on the receiving end of customer frustration about things I myself could not control, I am always sympathetic to everyone involved in such a mess as this. Carnival Triumph should arrive at Mobile, Alabama sometime tomorrow, and I’m sure ALL those on board can’t wait. I will read the reports on the incident investigation to be conducted on this with great interest. I hope other cruise lines (and of course Carnival) are learning from this.

Here’s an interesting article from Carolyn Spencer Brown on the subject.
