I heard that when the people finally stepped on land and found out they were in Alabama, half of them wanted to get back on the boat...
... the other half figured it wouldn't be that bad because they had gotten used to living without indoor plumbing.

Lol for real though the bus bringing them home even broke down
Talk about a trip from hell
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
I'm from Bama, it is really nice up here in the northern part of the state were I live.
Real talk, I'm going on a Carnival cruise next month. Before I booked, I heard nothing but good things about the line. Now, all of a sudden, I'm hearing bad things. Lowkey nervous.
Arison has had some terrible luck with his cruise ship businesses the last year or so
His NBA franchise however..
I was on the Triumph 2 summers ago! We had a good time no problems.
I have been on 3 Carnival cruises and every time it was nothing short of amazing. I wouldn't let this specific incident deter you from enjoying your trip. You will have a great time.
Beatings will continue until morale improves
I just went on a Carnival Cruise in December, the Dream from Port Canaveral, and had an awesome time. Don't let one freak accident scare you.
The Carnival trip was the first cruise I've been on but my GF and her family have been on quite a few and they all say Royal Caribbean is the best they've been on.
Yeah I was on a Carnival cruise about 4 years ago and it was all good.
I am a Royal Caribbean Guy
Preciate all the advice, fellas. I'm 99% sure I'll be drunk the entire time anyway so it's all good.
Any cruise advice y'all wanna shoot me? I'm all ears. Do's and don't's?
Going to Nassau so Atlantis is definitely in the plans. What are the can't miss excursions?
Don't buy the drinks they bring around the pool -- they usually call it "Island Special" It costs a lot, and it has like no booze in it.
I don't drink anything with fruit in it. Or anything colorful. It's my country upbringing.
Royal Caribbean all the way
You can request as much food as you like at dinner. Seconds, thirds, fourths, on to infinity. You can even request multiple dishes at the same time. Abuse this. Make sure to go to dinner the night they serve lobster (there is almost always a night they do this on Carnival). I ate 6 lobster tails last time. Carnival lost their ass on that one.

True...the waiters work for their tips at the end of the cruise, so they will treat you like the Goon King you are
I tip em well but put them through their paces
DO NOT waste your money on the glass bottom boat excursion.
Get drunk. Go watch kareoke. Andyes, eat all you can at dinner. Hell, try different meals back to back if you don't like the first one you order. If you like Cheesecake. Order it.
I went Norwegian West Carribean last week so I can't give specific advice about the cruise but I would say you should definitely hit some excursions, my favorite that I went on was a catamaran to snorkling to private beach; it took about four hours and we got free beer and margaritas once the snorkling was done. Also did some mayan ruins and some Scuba and just chilled at Costa Maya. You plannin on trying to sneak on some boos?/
I was thinking bout it but I'm not sure if I'll run the risk. They say you can pour out Listerene and pour vodka in its jar and add food coloring. I doubt we end up doing it.
I'm thinking we're going snorkeling on the private island. Either that or swim with the dolphins.
Thanks, Swamp, Chevy and Slap. Definitely plan on eating a bunch.

You should definitely do it... There are no reprocussions if you get caught, they just take it and give it back the evening before you hit home port.
Triumph is a POS, straight up.
With Carnival you get what you pay for and it's a complete party boat.
