This Means War!

Recommended Posts

Ok, all the further postings on here, with each one adding something to the story, is making this fun after all. I'm laughing here now.

 

It was just the original photo, though not real, but was realistic looking enough, that upset me.

 

Thanks Bodidly, your photo did actually make me feel better.:)

But, but nobody mentioned how many of the lost souls were Platinum or Diamond level cruisers? :')

Those that sacrificed their lives so that the rest of us could go on and enjoy future sailings relaxing in the Havana area during the day and enjoying multiple libations at the Alchemy Bar each evening will forever have their names emblazoned in my heart and the memory of their sacrifice will live on as a new anthem will be composed that will be played on a nightly basis in the piano bar.

RCCL will be totally fooled and won't stand a chance.
After all, it is kinda easy to fool a Loyal Royal mental midget. 😎

Onion is too stupid to even use the right ship, or research the name of the RCL ship used in the photo.

 

 

 

A true bunch of idiots!!!

 

 

 

And a shot to the Spa on the top decks would make Magic take on air, not water.

I was on this cruise. Once the bombardment started, the line at guest services quickly swelled and was all the way around the atrium of people wanting to remove tips. That is, until seawater swamped us.... but I was lucky. I held my Iphone above the water.

I didn't have to wait in line to remove tips. I'm Platinum! In addition to having a priority line at the information desk, we also get a priority line onto the lifeboats hence my survival!

If there is a silver lining to this atrocity it's that prices may finally come down a little. It's going to be tough filling cabins in wartime.

 

The trumpets have called.

 

This is satire, folks..........didn't you read Mad Magazine as a kid??

 

Perhaps, but I found a good number of posts in this thread very funny. Killing 3,675 people just doesn't hit my tickle bone, especially since there doesn't seem to be a point beyond filling column inches.

zero humor, might be the dumbest post on CC, something I would expect from FB, since it has nothing to do with cruising

I respectfully disagree with you.

That's okay...It's not the Allure in the picture either! :')

 

You're right! I was focusing on the Carnival ship and didn't even pay much attention to the RCI ship. :')

Not paying attention to the RCI ship is what started this war in the first place. Those Loyal Royals are a sneaky bunch.

I'm impressed at how Carnival's poolside TV is still working. I guess its the modern day version of Titanic's band playing on. :D

 

Hysterical! Just saw some of Titanic yesterday and that scene always makes me laugh. As if anyone could stay that calm and keep playing when their life is most likely about to end. Talk about totally unrealistic.

 

If you look at this picture, the Carnival ship isn't even named. The back end of the ship is already sunk, but the hull simply reads CARNIVAL.

The greatest thing about this thread is seeing another side to all my fellow posters. Sure, talking about cruising is great, but the dry wit displayed here is at times side splitting and priceless.

The worst part of the story wasn't even published. The surviving Carnival passengers....those poor folks who were in that lone lifeboat next to the sinking ship...were rescued by a nearby NCL ship. When NCL gave them a 18% gratuity bill for being rescued, they all jumped overboard. :D

I was wondering if anyone else had noticed that.....

 

were rescued by a nearby NCL ship. When NCL gave them a 18% gratuity bill for being rescued, they all jumped overboard. :D

Well THAT, plus also all the nickel-and-dime charges from the specialty restaurants on the NCL ship didn't help things either. "Whaddaya mean I gotta pay for this? I can get a fresh-made burrito or a Guy's Burger on Carnival for FREE!!"

Except that THAT scene in the film WAS accurate; the band indeed continued to play on as long as they could, and every musician perished when the ship went under.

They photoshopped the name out, apparently because it said it was a Conquest-class ship and not the Magic.

You'd think The Onion could have found a decent photo of ONE of the ships supposedly involved...... :)

Francis,

My family all refer to me as positively grim when it comes to sense of humor and I am known for taking everybody absolutely literally but even I knew within five seconds that this was all a joke! You really do need to lighten up!

 

Alternatively you can think of it this way,

When they destroyed all those people on the deck they did away with most of the chair Hogs!
