Cruise Passengers Succumb To Gross Illness After Human Waste Monster Ruins The VaCa!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooHealthScary!

cruise ship raw sewage health issue gross pee poop stranded deck

The amount of horror stories we hear about cruises seem to outweigh those from people who actually had an amazing time on them! In fact, even stories about people just being super bored outweigh those who've had fun!

So, we must ask (before we get into the grossness): Why does anyone want to take a cruise??

As of right now, there are passengers stranded on the Carnival Triumph cruise ship. They've become physically sick (not just from your normal bout of viruses that spread on these floating petri dishes), because conditions are THE WORST EVER.

Plastic bags are being used as toilets, according to the source:

'The facilities overflow and the unbearable stench of human waste and lack of food supplies [is taking] its toll.'

B.A.R.F!

So what happened? There was an engine fire that stranded them in the Gulf of Mexico. Now, they're taking the long-ass journey to Mobile, Alabama. How long? Well, how long does it take a tiny tugboat to pull a giant cruise ship overflowing with extra human waste??

About that long!

Some passengers have been able to call and text out about the rooms leaking raw sewage and asking why they can't just be evacuated off the boat. Probably because there are 4,200 people aboard!

The cabin carpets are apparently DRENCHED in urine, and people have been sleeping in tents on deck to avoid the rivers of poop and the fact that there's no air condition, because that broke too. Fights have broken out over food (cold onion sandwiches, anyone?), and the elderly are running out of meds. Formula and diaper supplies are scarce, too.

There has to be a better solution to this problem!

Oh yeah — don't go on cruises! LOLz!!

We hope everyone makes it back safe and sound!

    Don't they have life boats? Why can't those be used to save these poor people from these awful conditions?

    Carnival's latest promotion states:
    'Onboard experiences! There are more ways than evervfor Carnival cruisers to
    enjoy our ships.'
    Where are the vacationer's senses of adventure.

    I've been following this over on TripAdvisor, sounds truly horrible.
    Glad I have never wanted to take a cruise, I like to be on my schedule, not someone else's and they charge the dickens for booze! I have heard of people whose bar bill and tips is about the same as the cost of a (discounted) cruise.

    Why dont they just poop in a bag and throw it over the side of the boat into the ocean? Problem would have been semi solved if they used some common sense

    I have always enjoyed cruises! I've never been bored, shipwrecked, or stuck at sea…..praying for a safe and healthy return for these people as soon as possible!!!

    Put it all in perspective
    It's a Carnival ,
    That's the company that used Kathy Griffith in it's ads
    That's the same ship that Chelsea Handler talks about in one of her books
    Chelsea got off at first port of call, and never went back on
    You get what you pay for

    All the men could have easily urinated over the side, that would have helped a bit, but it's too late now. What a way to lose all your customers!

    Couldn't they use the tender boats to safely bring passengers to another cruise ship that was functioning? It may have taken a while to do this, but all ships are supposed to have enough of those boats on board to cover amount of passengers - those poor people on that cruise ship - i hope they are compensated better than what the news is reporting - a $500 voucher to another cruise?? come on!

    Re: ginamarie1106 – You really aren't that stupid are you?? They were/are days AWAY from port, after 24 hours do you think a small boat would be better than a huge boat.

    Re: 55vineyard – "I have heard of people whose bar bill and tips is about the same as the cost of a (discounted) cruise." That speaks to their problem with alcohol, rather than the cost of booze.

    Re: Nat – If you did a modicum of research you would find that is illegal.

    Re: sungddss – I think you can guarantee that atty's will be lined up at the dock taking names and passing out cards. Probably will end with a class action suit settled out of court for a whole bunch more than a free cruise.

    Perez is totally right! Cruise ships are too risky, considering the fact that owners just care about the money and not the thousands of people on board. C'mon, how do you expect safety conditions to prevail when most of these ships are 3x the size of the Titanic?!

    I've been on 5 Carnival Cruises and I've loved every one of them. One if the cruises I've been on was on the Triumph. It's just an unfortunate event. Anything can happen on a cruise just like anything can happen when you're traveling in a car. Just like anything can happen when you're flying on a plane. Carnival Cruises are very good and enjoyable, and if you want to take a vacation with your family, its probably one of the most kid friendly cruises to take aside from Disney. Just because one unfortunate even happen everyone want's to bash them. I'm so sorry for the people affected on this cruise and I hope they all return safely. But there's chances you take when you travel ANY kind of way.

    Re: raypearson – yes because when people go to the beach they totally do not piss in the ocean. Who cares if it illegal? They were in the middle of the ocean, who was gonna even see them?

    Re: Nat – Are you kidding? Now you want them to pollute the ocean even more by throwing their waste into the ocean? Obviously you don't have much common sense!
