A Carnival cruise ship was in the gulf of mexico with 4000 people on it. A fire in the engine room knocked out all power and navigation. The ship was basically dead in the water. Nothing worked. No engines, no lights, no air conditioners, no phones, NO TOILETS, no ovens, no refrigerators, no nuthin'! So, after several days with no functioning toilets, where does all the poop go? Well... it went Everywhere! People were pooping in trashcans, and plastic bags, and everywhere. And they ran out of food and water to give people. And finally, finally, they got towed back to port after a week of living hell.
There was a fire in the engine room that left the ship without power. It took them days to get tug boats out to bring it into shore. There was something like 5 working toilets on the ship and very little food, since the refrigeration and stoves didn't work. Plus no a/c. People were sleeping on the decks because it smelled so bad below deck.
The ship lost it's power and everyone on board thought they had made some big "survival" because the boat got "stinky". Not saying it wasn't a bad experience, i'm sure it was. I just think they're overreacting and whining
