    Oh well, at least these folks are off that damn filthy boat now!

    Hell yeah we are bitter! Fuck Carnival! lol really though both Mobile and Carnival are equally as butt hurt with each other now.

    Triumph Cruise Ship Bus Breaks Down

    (CNN) — Carnival Triumph passengers scattered to the four (better smelling) winds Friday, headed anywhere and everywhere but back to the stinky, crippled ship where they were trapped for days.
    In one final episode of indignity, the bus carrying some passengers to New Orleans broke down early Friday, leaving them stranded once again — this time on the side of the highway.
    “You wouldn’t think after the ship nightmare, that on the bus ride to New Orleans, the bus would break down,” passenger Jacob Combs said after the bus arrived in New Orleans following a 45-minute roadside delay.
    By the busload, passengers arrived in New Orleans, Galveston, Texas, and Houston, destined for flights or car trips that would take them home after the ill-fated trip — which went horribly wrong after an engine-room fire Sunday left the ship drifting, largely without power, in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Among the arriving passengers in Galveston were Tony and Jenny Larocca of Lake Charles, Louisiana, on their first trip away from the kids — a cruise that the husband got his wife for Christmas. Their souvenir? A bag of stinky clothes and a new appreciation for each other.
    “There’s no way I could have made it without him,” Jenny Larocca said.
    As they spoke, tugboats were pulling the crippled Triumph to a Mobile, Alabama, shipyard where it was to undergo repairs. The ship won’t carry passengers until at least mid-April.
    The Triumph finally pulled into port in Mobile late Thursday night after an agonizingly slow trip to the docks made longer by a busted tow line. Passengers lined the railings, cheering and waving towels in celebration as the ship finally pulled in.
    The last passengers got off early Friday. Some stayed overnight in Mobile before boarding buses to New Orleans or Texas.
    All were happy to be back on land. A few even kissed the pavement.

    Not her, but just jumping in to say yes it is. I think probably almost half the people I know were born there.

    If you click on that link and then go to "Our Latest Arrivals," you can see what the hot names for newborns at MI are these days. Most aren't bad, but one or two are cringy.

    I like one of the mother's names - "Tisu". Pass me a "tisu", please.

    And that is why I would have not gotten on the bus. I just sensed that was going to happen.

    I'd love to go to New Orleans, but after all that, I think I'd want to collapse in the first shower/bed I found and then go straight home.

    Smaller world, I was born there as well. The Infirmary is still going. It got damage from the Christmas Day tornado, but not much.

    Can you imagine being on that damn bus? The last thing I would have wanted to do after disembarking from The Good Ship Smellypoop is get on a bus. I would have booked a hotel for a couple of nights, taken about 25 showers, eaten at a nice restaurant, rented a car and drove back to NOLA. Gawd.

    Watching the cruise ship ep of 20/20...the cruise industry is all about taking peoples' money. I love ships and maritime history and shit, but today's cruise industry is so not related to that.

    Not only did one of the buses break down on the way to NOLA, I read some shit about a few passengers were to fly home but their flight was canceled due to some sort of electrical issue. At that point, you would have to just laugh.

    I would have rented the first decent hotel in sight and taken a nice hot shower, sent my clothes to be washed and ordered a hot meal.
