    Triumph is a very nice boat....

    I just wanted to come on here and type starfishboard.

    That is all.

    I don't understand why the bathrooms aren't working or why there are lines for food.

    The boat won't move. Does that mean it has to turn into 'Lord of the Flies'?

    The power is out on much of the ship. They can't cook a lot of their food, so passengers are limited on where they can eat, instead of having a couple of places to choose from.

    But couldn't you set up multiple, new distribution points for food?
    And do the engines have to work for the toilets to work?

    Both honest questions, I've never been on a cruise and know nothing them.

    I have never been on a cruise, and I'm sure it's a lovely experience for most people, but at this point it seems like a fairly perilous situation. Between the unsolved murders, weird illnesses, potential involvement of Rosie O'Donnell, and now a floating Port-o-Potty scenario, I'm out.

    I guess that makes sense. I was thinking 'My toilets don't need power,' but I hadn't thought about the pressure needed in the water system via pumps.

    Not sure how the systems work, but every story you hear about a stranded cruise ship, one of the first things you hear is about the toilets overflowing with waste. Would not anyone I know to be stranded in that situation.

    Different circumstances, but I've been without running water when traveling.
    It's a drag. I certainly wouldn't want to go through it with 3,000 other people who were expecting to be pampered.
    No pun intended.
