The cruise from hell has ended for the Carnival Triumph that was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for the last week due to a fire that cut out the engines and most of the other essential things on the boat. I've been on 4 cruises now. And hearing this happen, while sad, will not deter me from doing it again. A mishap like this doesnt happen often and with more 50 cruises a week around the world happening every week, the odds are in your favor that this extent of a catastrophy won't happen. I would think that Carnival and the entire industry would be offering amazing deals right now to help repair the cruising image. This is probably the time to book a cruise on any cruise line to save money.
