By now, you know I'm talking about the problems aboard the Carnival Triumph. I have no doubt that conditions were less than stellar with many of the bathrooms not working, and without the comforts
and luxury you expect on a cruise vacation. Crapping into a bag for four days doesn't sound fun, but that aside, you have food, water and the opportunity to enjoy the sun, tan, and read a book for
