I saw this last night and then again tonight on the nightly news. I have never been on a cruise and don't think I would really want to go on one after this story. I always thought Carnival was supposed to be good.

 I'm pretty sure it will be cheaper for the next few months until all of this dies down in people's memory.

 I've been on several with my 1st being the worst because we ran into a hurricane. That was nothing based on what's been happening lately. All of mine were fun and enjoyable but not sure i'd consider another one until they quit having these major issues.

I'm guessing the 4000+ passengers will be offered a free future cruise, but I'm also doubting that most will actually take them up on the offer!

 No I have never been on a cruise.  I am scared of water, too.

I have only been on one cruise, it was lovely, the food was amazing. My only problem is that I found out I get sea sick lol.

I've been on 2 cruises. We had a blast both times. I've also been in a hotel when the smoke alarm went off in the middle of the frigid night and we had to get out. Anything can go wrong, at sea or on land. We're going on another one next year. This won't stop me.

Took my first cruise this fall and saw Alaska.  LOVED it!!  Can't wait to go again.  Are you going to let a misadventure keep you from seeing the world and having an adventure???  when you finally go ... my best advice is to spend the extra money and get a cabin with a balcony.  It is TOTALLY worth it.
