What the hell are these fools thinking?
After the tragic cruise ship crash a couple of weeks ago, Carnival has tried to offer a little help to the survivors. However, it’s the most ill-conceived idea ever. Thirty percent off the next cruise? Um, NO THANKS!
Over the past week, representatives of Carnival have been phoning European survivors pushing the cruise-line discount while also asking them if they’ve been suffering from nightmares or sleepless nights, the London Sunday Telegraph reported.
“The company is not only going to refund everybody, but they will offer a 30 percent discount on future cruises if they want to stay loyal to the company,” a company spokesman said.
Brian Aho, a Schenectady resident who survived the disaster with his wife and teenage daughter with little more than their evening clothes, called the offer “kind of insulting.”
The death toll from the Jan. 13 accident was raised to 13 yesterday with the removal of an unidentified woman’s body from the sinking ship.
So, let’s get this straight: 13 people die and these fools are offering a refund and 30 percent off ANOTHER cruise?! Well, thank you. That makes up for the traumatic life experience. You’re awesome guys. No, really.
