Carnival "Poop Cruise" Passengers Seek $5,000 a Month for Life

Carnival Poop Cruise LawsuitReuters is reporting that the Carnival "poop cruise" passengers are seeking $5,000 a month for life. Ridiculous, many people will say. I don't disagree.

I went on record a year ago saying that Triumph passengers should not bother suing because they are not going to get anything - read Carnival Triumph Cruise From Hell: Here Come the Lawsuits!

Carnival's lawyers responded by telling Reuters that "this is an opportunistic lawsuit brought by plaintiff's counsel and plaintiffs who seek to make a money grab."

That's like the pot calling the kettle black. Carnival CEO Micky Arison is worth $7 billion and just sold $395 million of stock. But Carnival still felt compelled last year to raid the crew member's tips and suspend their retirement benefits. Talk about a money grab.

I say what do the hard-working Carnival crew members get for cleaning up the filthy ship?

Why Carnival forced the passengers to endure these deplorable conditions for days is beyond comprehension. This seems actionable in itself.

Carnival should give the poop people a room on a ship for life not 5k if they get off deal is done. fair enough

Well.I am an former Carnival crew member,have been on Triumph during that "amazing" and "fun"5 days drifting,and I can assure nobody got anything for that 5 days...apart of the regular daily wage..but as you know the crew works largely for tips...what they can't really say to the guest.
I am fully agree with Don Sayman
