April 20, 2013

America wants to help David Henneberry get a new boat.
The Watertown, Mass., resident became a hero when he discovered suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in his backyard boat. Henneberry quickly called the cops and in a final standoff, his boat was riddled with bullet holes.”That boat’s his baby. He takes care of it like you wouldn’t believe. And they told him it’s all shot up,” Henneberry’s friend and neighbor George Pizzuto told ABC News. “He’s going to be heartbroken.”

Carnival Cruise Cheaper Than Stay At Motel 6? Trying To Keep The Lights On For You

April 12, 2013

Is taking a Carnival cruise, post Triumph, really cheaper than staying at a Motel 6? A news story that appeared Wednesday on Bloomberg compared the cost of these two experiences. Was the cruise line’s recent troubles, including the stranding of 3,143 passengers at sea on the Carnival Triumph for days after it lost power in the Gulf of Mexico, responsible for the rock-bottom pricing?The comparison used in the story — a four-night trip on Carnival’s Imagination, leaving Miami on April 22, to the lowest nightly rate at the Motel 6 chain of $39.99 — concluded that the nightly Carnival rate of $38 was cheaper than Motel 6.

Laura Christian, Travelocity’s manager of Cruise Marketing Strategy said they are having a hard time trying to keep the lights  on for you.

Eye View Travel,Carnival Cruise The Sir Spamalot

November 11, 2010

Passengers on board a stricken cruise liner being towed back to port after a fire destroyed its propulsion and communication systems have spoken of their ‘nightmare’ journey.

The Carnival Splendor has been stranded 55 miles off the coast of Punta San Jacinto for the past three days with 3,299 passengers on board.

A major fire damaged the vessel’s engine and left holidaymakers without basic services including hot food, air conditioning and, for some time, working toilets.

Tugboats have been hauling the 952ft liner, dubbed the Spam cruiser after emergency supplies of the tinned meat were flown by helicopter to the vessel, to San Diego for repairs and some passengers on board have managed to get in touch with family.Lenora Chavez said the ship was beginning to smell and many people on board were seasick.

She told ABC News: ‘It smells like a lot of people are throwing up. I can smell that a lot and they have a lot of bags hanging in the corridors – vomit bags.

‘And I think the toilets are getting full, so all of those things aren’t so great.’ Sir Spamalot to the rescue.
