I think Carnival should give each passenger on the cruise from fecal hell anything they want.

What they're giving them is bupkas. They're getting away with murder. Your input?

They are getting their money back, a free cruise, discounts after that and I'm quite sure compensation will be bumped up. That's not bupkas, especially considering you sign a waiver restricting any payment to your cost of the cruise

lol, ship chasers instead of ambulance chasers

They've got nothing. When you cruise you sign a contract exempting the line from any kind of damages/lawsuits except for refund of cost.
I do not doubt however that ambulance/ship chasers jumped all over them

lol Good one.

more than likely in the small print of the ticket, the cruise line protected itself from people bringing lawsuits against the cruise line in case something went wrong. a refund of ticket and anonther cruise for no cost just don't cut it with me, but what can you do. most of the people on the cruise probably missed work because of it and/or can't go on another cruise due to other obligations.

Who did they murder? I think each case should be decided by a jury of their peers if that is the route each passenger wants to go.
I also think the company is going to take a major blow in their profits since few will ever go on their cruise ships again. They just might shut down completely after this fiasco.

Won't happen. They will take a small, quick hit maybe. So far there are no mass cancellations.
If the Concordia fiasco didn't sink them, this relatively minor bump won't either
Report as
Well, that is the peoples choice I guess. I thought I heard they already cancelled 4 cruises which will cost them a bundle. But if people choose to still sail with them, then I guess they must have something that the people want and are willing to overlook this boondogle.

They were on a crippled cruise ship, not raped and pillaged!! Yes it was awful and Carnival will pay dearly as they should, but seriously, chill! "Got away with MURDER?" Haha, woe!

Last I heard each passenger is being given $500 in addition to the compensation you listed. Definitely not bupkas. And those passengers will have stories to tell their grand kids.

EDIT: That was supposed to be a comment under boo153 rather than an answer.

The passengers are entitled to what they paid for, and they should be reimbursed for their troubles. I would hate to have been there for sure. How about a little perspective here. These are people who can afford a cruise. Compared to most theirs is misfortune, not plight. They are not victims of a natural disaster, or a corrupt overbearing government for that matter. They will soon return to their 'cruise affording' lives. I can describe in one word how the loss could have been much greater: Titanic.
And besides that, anyone who knows anything about cruising knows Carnival is the basement of cruise lines. and we all know: feces happen.

As for perspective, imagine what the crew had to endure. Their quarters where in the lowest part of the ship which required gas masks to enter. On top of their own problems they had to service a bunch of relatively rich, whiny people and clean up their feces. They are heroes.
