Sad picture


Recommended Posts

Very sad pictures indeed. I always knew we would get to the point where the classic ships were all gone, but unfortunately COVID will cause it to arrive much sooner. I enjoy the old ships so much more than the huge, gimmicky monstrosities the companies have been producing lately.

😢  Carnival Imagination was the first cruise DD and I took - to Key West and Cozumel.  It was a wonderful cruise and we’ve been addicted ever since. We’ve sailed some of the big ones and had great times - but the little Imagination will always be special….

Not just sad for the pictures......

 

Two workers involved in scrapping a former Carnival cruise ship in Turkey have sadly died. The fatal accident happened at the scrapyard in Aliaga, Turkey, on board what remains of the Carnival Inspiration cruise ship.

Fatal Accident While Scrapping Carnival Inspiration

According to NGO Shipbreaking Platform, two workers died during the dismantling of the Carnival Inspiration cruise ship at the Aliaga ship breaking facility in Turkey. Flames apparently caught the two workers within the engine room of the former Carnival-owned vessel. An investigation is currently underway to find out what happened.

And there are probably many, many more of these deaths that we -don't- hear about.   Especially in India and Pakistan (Alang and Gadani).    Life is of such little value in some places.   Such a sad existence for these breaking yard workers who really have no choice otherwise.

Our first cruise as a family was on Majesty a few years ago. I remember trying to figure out what class she belonged to bc her name didn’t match any of the other ships sailing. My husband remembered when Majesty was a big deal. My son, knowing that other ships had VR and water slides, was not impressed 😂 But it was a good ship to try for our first cruise and a nice little cruise at that 💕

Looks like the Monarch Viking Crown Lounge will be gone soon.  

 

Heartbreaking to see that.   We loved Monarch and had many nice evenings having pre and post-dinner cocktails up in that lounge.  It was a magical place .. especially at night.   So sad to see her go.
