The Cruise Ship and Cruise Line Discussion Thread!

P. 131: Disney Wish "Grand Hall" details teased!

Recommended Posts

It might be if they got thrown off by a mob of enraged Filipino crew members. I am putting nothing past the news at this point but I'm guessing that's probably not what happened.

No, I would say you probably went over the limit on this one. But how can a ship sail 150km without anyone noticing missing passengers?

 

It's not like there is a daily roll call. 2 people out of thousands are easy to miss.

To be fair to Carnival (God, did I actually say that?), it's just bad timing for a situation that is unfortunately somewhat "common" amongst all cruise lines. People go missing rather frequently. It just happens, and it's not the cruise lines' responsibility to hold each passenger's hand during their vacation.

Will it be the nail in the coffin now? I wonder how Carnival will wiggle out of this one, if they can.

 

Not even close. They are just unlucky at the moment and have a little bit of a PR problem. Most of the public will never put all these incidents together and will book a cruise next week because of the price.

Lets see, the couple went overboard around 10 at night. Wouldn't be noticed missing until breakfast the next morning. Pretty easy to see how it could happen.

True, but don't they have ID cards for access? I'm just wondering if it could sound an alarm after a card is for predetermined time left unactivated.

 

150km is about 3-5 hours depending on ship speed. Just like at a hotel, the card readers on the stateroom doors aren't centrally connected to anything, and although they keep an access log, someone needs to physically connect a computer to the reader to view it. Swiping your card isn't required for accessing any free entertainment or dining venues on the ship, so it's entirely conceivable that someone's card could go untracked for days. On my last cruise my card was only swiped into a computer when I got on and off the ship, which was way more than 4 hours apart.

I'll have a bed check if the bed checker is fit.

Or in this case ship-shape.

But back to the topic, this incident is clearly adding to Carnival's woes since the press is reporting there are security cameras all over the ship. I'm wondering if the two overboard passengers fell from a cabin, or from a public area on the ship?

Now I am scared to go on my Carnival Cruise coming up in September. It's taking us to Mexico, Jamica and Cayman Islands. And there will be five of us in one room. Will it be tight?

 

You should find out right away what kind of cabin you have, and what are the ages of the five of you? Two parents and three kids? One bathroom? Two bunks and a sofa bed? Sounds REALLY tight unless you have some sort of suite. But I don't even think Carnival offers two rooms suites so you're still kind of screwed on rollaways even if you have a suite.

^Well there's a shocker... Carnival can't catch a break can they. For all the troubles they've had over the last few months, they probably couldn't have done anything about this one.

The ages are 14, 42,43,23 and 8. Is it going to be tight?

No one can tell you how tight its going to be without knowing what type of room you have. But typically, on most ships, 5 is a lot of people in one room. But really, your'e going to be out and about on the ship most of the time anyways.

Yeah, the room is primarily used for showers and throwing up. Right Colin?
