    good grief, just listening to MSNBC and intereviews with people still on the Carnival after I believe was a 5 day nightmare...power, food/water outages, no sanitation...I can't imagine ever being in this position. Pictures of this Huge vessel and the 4000 on board...this does not seem like a relaxing vacation.

    Talking today with friends at bridge, one lady who has cruised a lot with her husband, said her LAST cruise was on the Amazon a couple yrs ago and she rarely left her cabin...it was hot, humid, bugs and the muddy Amazon...husband pushed her to go and he gambled the whole time....she said that was her last cruise...

    I've never done this type of vacation, never had the desire and never will, of course....

    After seeing this, the Italian ship run aground, and cruises where everyone gets sick, I think I'll pass.

    I know this sounds crude but I can poop in a bag for free at home if I want to, which I don't.

    Love, Mikie

    night and the comment was made: this vessel was a
    floating petri dish......then seeing all the "tent cities" people
    put up with sheets/towels etc....omg what a nightmare
    for those people looking for a pleasure trip.

    Then 20/20 did a segment on the Contra C........ and how
    it's still laying in that italian harbor area....

    Years ago when I was in sales and travelled a lot and I
    think it was an airport in FL where I was flying out of, a
    woman came of a flight and she was talking about how
    she just came off a 3 Month around the world cruise.... and
    she was so happy to be on the ground. I can't imagine
    that in my life, but many different people out there..
