His pictures on facebook show some of the damage on the Carnival ship (he is on RCCL) .... my favorite photo is pic of several workers on the Carnival ship "discussing" the situation.
What should the workers be doing? Smoking or perhaps puking over the side??

Wonder what the RCL workers were doing the same time this photo was taken

The photos are great...if you get any more, keep them coming.

As long as the photographer doesn't mind, then it's fine.

Powriv- what I meant was that I could imagine the discussion they were having....would have loved to have the audio of what they were saying...I bet there were a few "oh dang" and "holy crude" 's in the discussion.

We've gotten word from both lines that the ships have been cleared and are both on their way to their next port of call: Belize. At this point, no itinerary changes are expected. Royal Caribbean wasn't able to say when repairs will be made to Enchantment, but Carnival expects to fix up Legend while it is in sailing, so cruises won't be impacted.

IDK...but I sure would hate to be working in guest relations on those ships...can you imagine all of the people sipping on the kool-aid wanting compensation?

Yikes... Yeah, I can only imagine how many will be so traumatized that only a free cruise or two will cure them!

With free drinks, spa treatments (for the shock they are experiencing), tips paid by the purser, and 3 pints of alcohol from the duty free store delivered to their stateroom that night. (and normally I wouldn't poke fun, but given everyone is ok, I just had to....)

Sue, take those Spin to Win coupons to the casino and you will correct that deficiency in no time flat. Keychains are practically guaranteed.

Ya think?
We were on the Brilliance in August and I used both mine and my DH's coupons --- alas, no keychain.
Fortunately I have a drawer full of the RCI keychains from other cruises.
Very happy that the incident in Cozumel did not result in injuries and that both vessels are underway.

I was on the Carnival Paradise last May, but I am sorry melted cheese on stale bread is not Pizza.
Saying Carnival's could at least be called pizza is the same thing as taco bell selling Mexican food.
