"I mean, it's horrible. There's no running water. There's no power. They are having to use the restroom in buckets and bags."
"It's like a bunch of savages on there," he added. "If you get on the blogs, they're saying that people are fighting over food and stuff."
Toby Barlow told CNN that his wife, Ann, a passenger on the ship, texted that the plumbing failed and people were defecating in bags and urinating in showers.
She also told him there's "sewage running down the walls and floors," he said.

Apparently not the love boat....
I wonder how the MSM will cover this... Do cruise lines donate primarily to liberals? If so it’ll be downplayed.
Anyone who gets on a Carnival Cruise Ship deserves whatever happens. They are the trashy party ship of the seas.
Throw in a Somali “pirate” attack and it sounds like it would make a good movie. The Love Boat From Hell.
Wonder when they will start the raping and killing.
Is this another ‘Superdome’ ?
Is this even true ?
Well, they will NEVER forget this vacation.
The Captain’s Buffet is on the Lido Deck. In a half hour it will have seeped down to the Riviera Deck.
Since big ships have been sending over food and water why have they not taken passengers OFF the same way ???
Im surprised they havent done that...
it sounds like the santitary conditions are way past unhealthy..
what happens when they start getting sick BEFORE Thursday ???
IMO the msm is usually pretty hard on cruise lines, they are a money making industry after all but you only hear about them in the news when its a bad story.
On the plus side, you can fart all you want and nobody will notice.
They need to fly Geraldo out there immediately.
Is this a story about a cruise ship, or post Obama america (U.S.S.A)?
I can’t quite tell...
"Was that wrong?"
ANYONE who gets underway ON PURPOSE deserves what THEY get.
From a shipboard auxiliary engineering perspective there is no excuse for this despite the power outage. The plumbing can be routed to facilitate manual clearing - unless their engineer is as drunk as the Italian “look kids the eiffel tower” captain.
There, fixed it. Powered-down cruise ship not required.
My wife’s father calls them a floating Motel 6 with an all you can eat denny’s on board.
Sounds like this one is digressing into Lord of the Flies.
A truly horrid cruise line. Used Carnival once, in the ‘80s, and vowed, “Never again!” The dining room reminded me of dining halls in prison movies.
It seems like a lot of cruise ships are having problems; i.e. tipping over, virus infections etc. etc. If the assertion that the industry is having problems is correct one wonders why.
