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.
