It must be a slow news time. They are doing their level best to completely ruin the cruise industry with their sensationalism and mis-reporting.
The Carnival Triumph had a fire and no one was hurt. They were not able to sail and were adrift. The crew worked non stop to make the passengers as comfortable as possible. Was it fun? No, of course not.
Had I been on that cruise I would have stepped up to the plate and helped wherever I could. I would not have complained where not necessary. This was not something that Carnival planned or wanted for heaven's sake. It was something that happened and you go forward and do the best you can with what you have.
The passengers are getting a full refund, another cruise, $500.00, travel, hotels, whatever they need to get home. Does that make it go away? Of course not.
I guess I am in the "glass is half full" club. I do tend to see the best where possible, I know that. I also think I am happy to be on that side whatever the situation.
Sarge was the same way. He was not a "negative Nellie" nor am I. And I cannot stand it when others behave that way.
I loved hearing the passengers talking about how well the crew did and I knew they would. They always do. The media tried their hardest to get them to say negative things but the ones I heard did not.
Okay, I'm done. Sorry for the rant. Carry on.
