You generally dont want to pay that kind of money for a trip that ended up being a case of roughing it
As I understand it, they were refunded their money, given a free cruise of their choice, and $500. Yes, they had a bad vacation that didn't cost them a penny. I'm sure $500 covered their airfare.
Life is not guaranteed. I wasn't there so I will never know the real challenges, but I know they will have memories for a lifetime.
I survived the Blizzard of '77 in Buffalo. I still talk about it to this day. I mention my 'perfect' vacation in Barbados about never.

Tough times have a funny habit of becoming fond memories.
If they didn’t we’d all be miserable all the time. I thank God that I grew up poor because it made me a much happier and satisfied adult.

(REMEMBER THE RIVER RAISIN!)
I understand things happen and in this case it appears that the company has made a good-faith effort to make things right. If it were me, that's all I would ask. Sometimes the dice roll against us. I'm guessing it is a rare occurrence and in any case it appears no one was killed or seriously injured. That can't be said of other types of transportation accidents. I guess it's human nature to look to cast blame on someone when things don't go your way. The major loss here seems to be time and convenience, which, while not trivial, are not in the same category as health, life, or limb.

My brother-in-law is from Honduras and I've gone with he and my sister and their family on vacations there many times. And on every trip there was a significant event where my friends would ask me why the hell I go there......LOL!
I wouldn't trade those memories for the world........
