1. What is the appeal of a cruise?

They're floating germ factories. Its like saying "hey I want to go on vacation but I don't want to leave the hotel for a week".

2. My husband says much the same.

If I ever wanted to go on a cruise, I would have to go alone.

9. We went on one, not Carnival, to the Alaskan passage

We enjoyed it. Would I book on Carnival? Nope.

11. i dont know that - i just doubt the owners want that ship(t) being brought into port in daylight

with all the news cameras all around filming every filthy inch of this disaster and the sickened mass of people. better to wait til dark so you cant see the extent of the nastiness and perhaps there will be less reporters there but even if the reporters are still there it'll be dark and the darkness will provide cover. hey i could be wrong but companies care more about image than people so this would not be surprising

I'm surprised it did not fail earlier.

6. there is no way these people should not have been transered to another ship. Carnival just didn't

want to go through the expense of the operation.
