Responsible companies should be prepared for these contingencies. There’s no excuse for this and I hope those in charge of the situation are held accountable.

This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. This isn’t the 17th century. It’s absurd they don’t have a plan to rent a few ships and take these people off.

Here’s a live feed of the arriving ship.

My spidey-sense is tingling. I see a whole boat-load of lawsuits.

The good news is that this feces covered ship will be back out carrying passengers in a couple of weeks. Probably most of the passengers who pick up intestinal diseases will think they got them in port.

Don’t know why the ship couldn’t be towed to a Mexican Port . Oh Wait ….cost ! Flying all those people back to the states ? Naaaa, let’em wallow in shit for 5 days .

This is addressed in the link:

The original plan called for the Triumph to be towed to Progreso, a Mexican port. But that would mean fighting the northerly currents.
<snip>
“The worry was the gulf current,” he said. “North of the Yucatán there is a different current and this ship was caught in a northerly current, so it was a very good decision by the company, by Carnival, to bring us to Mobile instead of Mexico.”

I’m saying the point was considered, not whether or not the decision was correct.

Absolutely. Negligence by Carnival seems more than possible, and one can easily picture comparable situations that could have turned tragic.

My spidey sense sees the management suits blaming the engineers and techs whose arms they twisted to cut corners.

Tow line snapped just as they were coming into port.
