Indeed, Michael, there will be lawyering up done by many. It will be a media circus in Mobile tomorrow.

That seem fair enough to me....of course there will be those that feel they deserve more.

CNN has had continuous live coverage for a couple hours now. For a ship of hell, the open decks sure look neat and clean to me.

I saw that too. I hope they talk to a lot of people, not just the loudest, unhappiest person.

They are talking to a passenger via phone right now on CNBC. He has given kudos to the crew and CCL for going above and beyond. Comaraderie among passengers is good. Morale is good onboard. "overall, not horrible." He's been on 13 cruises and says this will not effect his decision to cruise at all. Good attitude by this gentleman as I'm sure the media will grab every unhappy passenger they can find to interview as they get into port....which is now scheduled for midnight.

CNN coverage is nothing short of scandalous so far today, and they are staying with it tonight.

Fortunately, we have a seasoned cruiser onboard (one of our forum moderators) who will be able to share his experiences without embellishment.

Safe travels to all.

With all this coverage I can't help but to think there will be some people that will want to cancel their cruise because they became fearful. If I told Royal Caribbean I wanted to cancel my April cruise because of what happened on the Triumph - I wonder what kind of response I would get. I have no intention of doing that--I just can't help but wonder.
