    And yet AGAIN!!!


    From Lateef Mungin, CNN
    updated 5:45 AM EDT, Fri March 15, 2013


    (CNN) -- First it was Triumph, then Elation, Dream and now Legend.

    While they are happy names for cruise ships, some passengers say they've had experiences recently that belie those names.

    The Legend was on the last leg of a seven-day Caribbean cruise that departed Tampa on Sunday. Within a span of a month, three other Carnival Cruise ships have reported problems.


    Because of the problems on the Legend, Carnival said it had canceled a scheduled stop in Grand Cayman and the ship will make its trek back to its scheduled ending destination in Tampa, Florida.

    Even though the vessel is expected to arrive on schedule Sunday, some are losing patience, passenger Rob Bonenfant said.

    "Passengers are now really pissed off," Bonenfant said via e-mail. "Mood on the ship is getting worse among passengers, captain is giving limited information."

    Carnival has promised to refund $100 to passengers and give them other refunds and discounts.

    Wow!!! A $100 buc refund!!! That'll buy like 2 drinks.

    They are having problems with those engine "pod" things...maybe the tech isn't so great or someone
    isn't caring for it correctly...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Maybe they should name the next one "Nightmare".

    I was talking to someone at Mote Marine yesterday who said that even though
    the ship still had a damaged engine "Pod" they sent it out again.

    These fools are going to lose a ship...and the people.

    I'm relieved that my dad doesn't go on Carnival cruises! He goes on a cruise every winter. I'm not sure which one, but I know its not Carnival.


    I keep thinking of those ads they used to run with Kathy Lee Gifford and George Foreman: "If you could see me now". Yeah, if you could see me now, all messed up from having no power, no fresh food and having to poop in a bag.

    Mrs E and I took a Carnival cruise in December 2011. We had a great time, apart from crappy weather on the 3rd day.

    The ship performed flawlessly.

    All the same, we probably won't do any sort of cruise any time soon. Pooping in bags doesn't sound like much fun.
