Carnival’s Triumph had a serious fire while at sea in February, 2013, knocking out power, propulsion, sewage and numerous ship’s systems causing health and safety problems for passengers. Ned Levi examines Carnival’s responsibility in light of their statement that passengers’ tickets provide no guarantees for safe, seaworthy vessel or sanitary cruise.
The Carnival Triumph passengers are home from their ordeal, but many unanswered question are still left. It’s possible to learn from the passengers’ experience to become better prepared to handle cruise emergencies. Ned Levi discusses concrete suggestions for cruise ship passengers to help them get through a cruise ship emergency at sea.
For the nearly 3,000 passengers aboard the Carnival Triumph, their dream vacation already has become something of a nightmare. For about 900 cruisers (according to Carnival) the situation almost got much worse, because they had traveled without a passport.
