Holy crap: Carnival tweet assures poop-cruise passengers the bathrobes are complimentary

Oh, man.

After days without working toilets and electricity on a disabled Carnival cruise ship, passengers finally returned to shore last night. The Triumph was described as a “floating petri dish.”

Many passengers left behind the stinky, steamy nightmare wearing Carnival’s white bathrobes.

But great news, guys! Those robes? No need to return them. Totally on the house!

As Major Garrett might say: Not f*cking kidding. That is shirty business.

    Good idea.
    Always nice to have a souvenir to remind you of a great trip!

    Let’s see… you went on a Caribbean cruise, the ship broke, and the cruise line botched its PR response. #FirstWorldProblems.

    Of course the bathrobes for the Carnival Triumph are complimentary. So is the dysentary.

    Ah, the pleasures of living on a steel box floating in the ocean. Not a bad life as long as the engineering works.

    I’ve never had the desire to go on a cruise. This just seals the deal to never go on a cruise. I am sure these situations are rare, but if it weren’t for my bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. 😉

      I’ve been on a number of cruises (none of them Carnival) and we’ve never had a problem. I was always told not to take Carnival cruises and, with all the problems they’ve had, this pretty much confirms it. I’ll stay with NCL or Royal Caribbean.

      i’ve been on a few cruises, all with carnival and no problems. But this and the ship that had the same thing happen in the Pacific Ocean a year or two ago make me question going again.

      • thetreyman

        seems like, if memory serves me, they were trying to build some new ships but were held up by the obama admin. and may now have to bulid outside the US. so i cant help but feel that this is, somehow, all obamas fault.

    I watched a little of the coverage of the passengers disembarking. For being so miserable for so many days—what a gracious group. I’d have been a bit more unhappy, unless they gave me two bathrobes! :-)

    Those robes don’t even look that nice…these people really got some bang for their buck. Although, I still don’t understand why they didn’t just pee in a bowl or something and then throw it overboard…

      um, hello! EPA regulations.

      • ToyZebra

        Empty the bowls on the EPA inspector. Problem solved.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        Since when do EPA regs hold sway outside the US territorial limit? A few garderobes set up on a weather deck could’ve made a world of difference and cut down (if not…*ahem*…eliminated) the risk of disease.

  • Love of Country

    Well how much does Carnival charge to stay on the poop deck and did they charge extra this time around?

    • thetreyman

      you got a down vote for that joke. must be a carnival rep.

        Oh, that’s just my parasitic little co-dependent, brown-nosed ASSCLOWN ….. but thanks for asking, lolol, and I did enjoy your response a good deal but please allow me to digress ….

        You see, with a superior intellect (lol), I carefully dismantled a tragic little troll’s foolish and baseless ad hominem attacks against me one fine day. And now, 6 months later he’s still trying to fix his fractured little ego by tagging along wherever I go, whenever I go, to cast his little down-vote against me in some feckless, limp-wristed and cowardly protest …. LMAO!

        Long story short, this little emotional train wreck has seemingly dedicated his inadequate life to a goal he can never fulfill. I know his little ego must be mortally wounded but it’s just too bad he’s such a coward that he will never challenge me on any of the issues. Instead, he’s always hiding in the shadows and as soon as I pass by he leaps into action like a Super-Coward; not to confront me, but to cowardly cast his down-vote behind my back as if that means anything to anybody …. LOVE IT!

        The funny thing is, and pardon me for elaborating, is how much power I seem to wield over this stooge. You know he actually told me last summer (before he lost his voice) that he made it to where his cellphone actually rings every single time I post on Disqus …. can you believe it?

        So his phone rings and then all of a sudden he’s frantically searching through all the sites I frequent just to find my latest post. He does this day in and day out, lol. Whether it’s in the morning, the afternoon, the evening … he frets and frets every time his cellphone tells him I have posted somewhere and he can’t get to a PDA quickly enough to down-vote me ASAP, lol … good times!

        I’m certain this troll actually spends no less than one or two hours every single day thinking about and/or trying to be at his computer to cast his vote just as soon as I make my post. Does he really think any of us get paid by the vote around here? And never mind that when I review my posts in Disqus, it doesn’t even show down-votes, lol.

        So whether his embarrassing obsession w/ me had anything to do with my brilliant rebuttals to him or if it was just his woefully fragile ego I’m not sure. But you know what they say ….. small and petty people are about small and petty things ….. and this little emotional train wreck does indeed take the cake, lol! But truth be told …. whenever I say “jump” he says “right now? Okay then …. how high?”.

        • thetreyman

          i hope you just made all of that up. there cant be someone out there that is that sad of a person.

          • Love of Country

            His name was douchie but I believe he cancelled that account and opened a new one that same day in order to have an anonymous account dedicated to trying to rehabilitate his fractured ego. He’s the most emabarrassing scab I’ve ever come across, and yes, it’s all true, doh!

            Nine times out of ten it makes zero difference to me …. but it’s that tenth time that I have those mixed feelings of superiority, amusement, pride, ownership, bewilderment and pity. He’s wasting a considerable amount of his life following me around all of the time without even bothering to learn from me … too bad. :)

            Here’s a fun fact ….. earlier this month, I posted three comments one evening that garnered over 700 votes between the three of them. In that one hour alone, I erased an entire year of his hard and dedicated efforts to achieve whatever goal he’s trying to achieve by casting down-votes every single day. An entire year of his fastidious efforts …. up in smoke …. lmfao.

    If you look at the cruise as a microcosm of society… see what happens after a couple of days when the toilets don’t flush and the hot meals aren’t delivered as promised. It makes me glad I don’t live in a city.
