Nope! I’ve been on a few cruises, and nothingad has happened so far. This will probably drive prices down a bit though, which is actually a plus for me! That being said, I don’t sail carnival. For some reason I have always found Royal Carribean to be more organized and just generally better.

I do wonder why they aren’t getting the passengers off the cruise, onto another ship though? I mean,if there is feces on the ground, getting people out makes sense.

I’m sure in the future there will be better protocal/prevention surrounding these circumstances. Generally the same mistake doesn’t get made twice in things like this.

I have never been a fan of Carnival, so all this does is solidify my stand to never cruise with Carnival.

No.  Freak accidents like this wouldnt stop me from taking a cruise.  There are probably dozens of cruises in the water at any given time where nothing out of the ordinary happens.

We’re cruising on Princess this upcoming weekend. I’m not deterred at all!

Nope – it was an accident.  Fires happen, things happen.  I’m not going to not do things I want to because I’m afraid some freak accident might happen.

Eh, stuff happens. You can’t live you life worried about what if’s… otherwise you wouldn’t drive, fly, walk down the street 🙂

Went on a Carnival cruise end of July/beginning of August and would definitely cruise again, even with Carnival although from the people we talkto on the ship they said Royal Carribean was a better ship to cruise with.

This does not put me off of cruises. I think it’s a once in a blue moon situation. There are hundreads of cruise ships out there daily, but a news story comes up maybe 2 or 3 times a year..

I was against cruises before this happened. I’m one of those people who just don’t find them appealing. Would much rather be adventuring around an interesting place than on a floating hotel with very limited shore excursions!

@crayfish:  I agree! I love exploring new places AND being a complete beach bum.
