To answer the question: A pervasive decline in service aboard the ships or reliability of the ships systems. We aren't even in the ballpark yet.

Media focus causes some people to think the 'ship disaster of the moment' is the only cruise ship at sea. I haven't counted them but I imagine in the past month - covering both the Triumph and Dream cruises - Carnival has had about 100 perfectly fine cruises start and end as opposed to 1 that didn't go well (Triumph) and another one that was just a mild annoyance (Dream).
