Last month, almost to the day, an 893-foot, 4,200-person Carnival cruise ship was towed into the Mobile, Alabama port after a hellish week spent adrift without running water. The journey was called the Poop Cruise. It was hilarious.
Now, tales are drifting in of a similar Carnival cruise ship beset with engine problems, a stalled ship, and overflowing shit.
Are you guys ready for POOP CRUISE II: THE POOP STRIKES BACK?
Carnival Cruise Lines is working to fly all passengers on one of its cruises back to Florida after the ship suffered a generator failure while docked in the Caribbean.
The experience on the Carnival Dream became something of a nightmare for passengers Wednesday when power went off, toilets stopped working, and no one was allowed to leave -- despite the fact that the ship was docked at Philipsburg, St. Maarten, in the eastern Caribbean.
Although power was restored and facilities were functioning again, the ship still can't leave its port.
Occupants tell CNN that there's "human waste all over the floors" of the ship. The Dream's passengers are now marooned on St. Maarten (sounds terrible!), while they await their boarding passes for flights back to Florida. So, unfortunately, it seems like POOP CRUISE II won't have the epic excrement of the first glorious trip. Ah, well. Sequels rarely live up to the originals.
