Well, not adrift anymore as its being towed to Alabama.

They report that they have lack of food. Is this because they can't cook it? The fire happened Sunday, so the passengers can't be starving. Hungrey, yes.

Passengers sleeping on deck.

Toilets said to be not working. People relieving them selves anywhere. Hallways being flooded with sewage.

To quote from the comments from the link. " I guess the passengers sleeping on the poop deck". Lol

Quote from article that the ship is being towed at "6 knots per hour". I would think CNN could get Their terms straight.

I've not been on a cruise. I can imagine this number of people crammed in this tiny space.

I think this might be enough to keep me off one.
