There is no question that these people didn't get the vacation they were expecting. And I was wrong... They weren't under those conditions for a week. Only for five days. Five days without airconditioning isn't a hell on earth. Sure, it's not what was expected, but come on... what do people do when they go to the beach?!? Sandwiches for meals? Hell, I had pickles, cheese, and mustard sandwiches myself yesterday, because they taste good! If I had thought of it, I probably might have added a slice of onion. These are hardly starvation rations. They just aren't what they expected. Sure, they have every right to be upset about a ruined vacation, but it was ruined because of an accident, not terrorists. Frankly, having been on one cruise myself, having such a situation might have improved the interest of the week. Cruises bore the crap outta me!
The company has offered to refund all money, and even offer a free cruise. Bringing law suits for damages on a food line? Law suits for bad smells? I wonder if the Princess felt the pea under her mattress?
