A Splendorful Day
Well it was quite a show yesterday as the Carnival Cruise ship Splendor was towed into San Diego from what the media is now calling "The Cruise from Hell to Nowhere". It had all the makings for a seedy, low budget TV movie. 4K people stuck out on ship 100 or so miles off the coast of Mexico with barely any electricity, sanitation, and where forced to eat salad and fruit and supposedly spam. Throw in a few monster sharks, a zombie or two, and a deranged captain and we got a movie. I tell ya, it sounds more like a weight loss challenge cruise to me. Most of the folks seemed to take it with a bit of humor. Seems like Carnival made-right and offered all the passengers a free cruise.
