Now I've never been on a Carnival Cruise ship, but based on everything I've heard about them from this site, friends, and family, I feel like I should be nervous.

So basically they laid off employees so they could buy back shares and give money to their shareholders? Classy

Don't you mean "Klassy"? ;)

CBS is airing a show tonight called Whistleblower, "SeaWorld the case against captivity"

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/former-trainer-blows-the-whistle-on-killer-whale-captivity-at-seaworld/

It doesn't seem like anything is new in this and this guy was in Blackfish so I don't really see the point in this episode.

I love donkeys more than me.

Seaworld attendance is up. Hopefully this blowhard episode doesn't hinder progress
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Unfortunately the news media knows that people respond to "supposed" mistreatment of animals, especially from corporations like Seaworld.

The general public all think they know what is best for these animals, that they know more than the countless Seaworld employees who literally studied these animals, spent years of their lives in college to earn marine biology degrees, have rescued 100s of animals, etc.

It's the news equivalent of clickbait, and unfortunately it works.

My sister and her husband both worked at Seaworld as animal care specialists for years. Let me tell you, it is not an easy job. Animals don't take holidays off. Animals also don't care what time of the day it is when they need care. So you have to give up 1/2 of your holidays and can be called in to work at 2:00am. Also, the pay is not great...at all. I was shocked when I glimpsed my sister's paycheck. These people work with these animals because they LOVE them, not for the money. So it's absurd to think that the animals are mistreated.
