Doesn't look so bad. Who's saying the wet floors was sewage? It could also be just water. Not a "Carnival cheerleader" by any means, but don't believe much of what I hear anymore. It's all hype these days.

Thanks for posting the pics.

I'm sorry I just think its ridiculous to say it doesn't look that bad. While I'm sure people are trying to stay positive I doubt it's fun. I bet the smell alone is terrible. And sleeping on deck chairs for several days. Maybe no biggie for you but for people like me for example with a bad back it would be torture.

Water from what? LOL. The density here is rising rapidly.

And that is an end table. Ew. Man, they might as well 2.0 that floating hazmat dumpster now, with all the work they're gonna have to do.

Yeah, there's that one again. Should add a FAQ of things that are incredibly moronic and have been posted 500 times already.

I had expected much worse - based on all the media reports that have been coming out. Its not ideal, as I have said before, but they are safe and will be home very soon.

What else do you do on a crippled cruise ship on Valentine's day??? Make a heart out of life jackets and take pictures.

Nice to see them making the best of a bad situation.

I think the picture with the cardboard lined up on one side is in the buffet area. It looks like one of the drink stations on the left. I don't remember a bathroom that close to those. I would think that might be water leaking from the buffet area, maybe freezers defrosting or the like.

Those other cardboard pieces, i think, are at the back food areas near the pool. Those might be there because of rain (I heard they got rained on at some point). I say this because I nearly busted my own a$$ on that very spot after a light rain and my flip flops slid out from under me

I'm absolutely ashamed for some of those of you who have made comments that suggest this cruise was anything but horrid and unacceptable. Where is your sense of compassion and humanity and when did you lose it?

Have cruised on the Splendor with passengers that went through the same thing when she had her problems. Most think the crew did a great job then. They looked upon it as an adventure they got that was FREE with FREE drinks, FREE phone calls, with another FREE cruise out of it later on.

Of course it isn't the ideal situation not what any one cruising expected when the booked their Vacation but as they say s&$t happens, it's not the end of the world no one died just had a few days being very uncomfortable. I am sure you will hear complaints from the "complainers" and others who take it in stride.

Most people do have compassion, but theres no need to be overly dramatic.

You're not saying YOU were on the fated Splendor cruise. Even if you spoke with a few passengers that did, you couldn't possibly speak for every single one of them. So, please, don't try.

No one is saying conditions on the Splendor and the Triumph were not survivable. Clearly, they were. What people are saying is there is a problem. The cruise line industry is largely unregulated. None of them are registered in the United States, so the Coast Guard has very limited jurisdiction over them. Maintenance should be a top priority and we shouldn't have to take some corporation's word for it that their ships are well maintained. The facts are beginning to show the opposite is true.

Face it. These ships are worked harder than the crews who work inside them. We need assurances that companies are not scrimping. Things need to change and they have to change now. Otherwise, CNN will one day cover a cruise disaster much larger than Concordia.
