COMMENT OF THE DAY: "I really need to start printing T-shirts that say, 'My grandparents went on a Carnival Cruise and all I got was this T-shirt and a box of Pop Tarts.'" - MaryLandMom
Imagine being stuck at sea on a luxurious boat and eating Pop Tarts. Toilet problems and power outages notwithstanding, a few readers said the stranded cruise ship passengers aboard the Carnival Splendor couldn't really complain given all the suffering that goes on in the world. Others sympathized with the passengers' harrowing holiday, while still more imagined many of the passengers would have a great horror story to tell at cocktail parties.
