HIs post is very easy to read, even with the misspelling.

No it's not unless you have read his Carnival rants before, then they make sense.

On a very positive note for Carnival, their quarterly dividend arrived today!

We've been on 8 wonderful Carnival cruises since 1999, but we will avoid the line now.

They have had to refund money, give away free cruises, suffer bad PR,and face court action.

There are 2 common factors, the ships involved have been owned by Carnival, and the ships involved were built by Fincantieri.

Carnival also owns and operates AIDA, Costa Cruises,
Cunard Line, Holland America Line, Ibero Cruises, P&O Cruises,
Princess and Seabourn and Ocean Village cruise lines and those lines have no issues.
And no other Fincantieri ships have had issues.

I agree they are giving people money and freebes!

By accountabily.....I mean when are they going to come clean and start making the changes to their vessels and operations to stop this! It is LONG over due!

Please note there are many other Fincantieri vessels operating with out these problems. To the best of my knowledge, its the Carnivail Inc., vessels with the issues, which leads to the design as well as other issues?. did they go cheap in the biulding and design somewhere?


Something to think about!

Nope never have, in fact the last time I read anything of his, he was offering facts and facts only about the last load of crap that happened on Carnival.

As for the reading of the post. It has been proven, I can't help it is some of you are in the group of the few that can't read things that are misspelled.

There was even a T shirt with a very bad word misspelled. Kids weren't allowed to wear it school, because as the study proved, the human brain, once it learn to read well, only looks at the first and last letters in the word and the middle letters really aren't necessary, as long as the are basically correct, but in fact can be slightly off and not in the right order.

ENough of the Harvard Study, back to tearing apart Carnival.

Lovely. And this company cannot see that people will want to have their deposits refunded in order to avoid this same pitfall?

I know what you are talking about but that doesn't mean that it is easy to read. Tonka has some very strong opinions about Carnival and I can respect his opinions, I don't agree with them all but I can respect them. It does seem when he get riled up, his spelling suffers and it does get difficult to read.

There are also studies that have shown that poor spelling and grammar weaken a person's argument, regardless of what they are saying.

Amazing the people more worried becuase of my typing.........not facts.........just typing.
