Carnival Cruise has announced more cancelled sailings on its floating sh*t house, also known as, Carnival Triumph. The company has now cancelled a total of 14 planned sailings from February 11 through April 13, 2013.
The cancellations are in light of the Triumph’s current fate. The vessel - which set sail last Thursday from Galveston, Texas, was left adrift due to an engine room fire that knocked out the propulsion system. It is currently being towed to Mobile, Alabama at a rapid rate of 7 nautical miles an hour and expected to make landfall tomorrow morning.
Meanwhile human waste, human misery and bad food are running aplenty on the Triumph. The sailings might have been cancelled through April, because it might take that long to clean the human waste and stench that is oozing through the walls.
The ships is carrying 3,143 passengers and a crew of 1,086.
The cancelled trips involve the “Western Caribbean Cruise” itineraries that involves stops in Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico. The 101,509 ton ship has trips posted on line from February 16, 2013 through April 26, 2014. The cancelled trips offer either 4 or 5 nights of travel at costs ranging from $279 for an inside room to $379 for a balcony. For the higher-end traveler there is the Grand Suite at an expansive 345 square feet.
