Neilster -> Carnival cruises...amazing deals! :P (2/16/2013 1:14:14 AM)

I've been living under a rock for about a week and when I checked online this morning I couldn't believe the amazing deals I can get on a Caribbean cruise with Carnival. Total bargain! [:D]

Cheers, Neilster

No problem, if you don't mind crapping in a bag and leave it outside your cabin.




Chickenboy -> RE: Carnival cruises...amazing deals! (2/16/2013 2:45:09 AM)

Hmmm...sulla05, I'd prefer to be able to crap in a bag and leave it outside Warspite1's cabin. Would that work?

C'mon...that's all just part of the adventure. No sanitation? Disease breaking out? Little food or water? Stifling heat? Think of it as an authentic, historical themed Caribbean cruise from about 1800 [:'(]

Cheers, Neilster

I rather not. I prefer my adventures to be in comfort.

I actually prefer to read about adventures rather than having adventures. Much more relaxing that way. [:)]

Sorry Neilster, but I agree with Orm. When I go camping I do so at The Mandarin Oriental.

Personally, I prefer the Black Hole of Calcutta. India is so lovely this time of year, and you meet so many interesting people gasping for air. And the view is spectacular!

Yep, nothing like 115 degrees in the shade, with 199% humidity.

Yes, Mad Dogs and Englishmen!

The reported decision not to allow the ship to be towed to Mexico due to the cost of then having to fly passengers to the states is going to cost the company big time. It is directly responsible for the disgusting situation that then developed. Assuming the reports are true of course, can't really trust the media to get it right these days, so who knows for sure. I think I'll take a look at shorting a few shares of their stock.

Now come the Lawyers chasing Law suits.  I have very little respect for that profession.  I am sure their some good ones out there.  All the medical commericals of law firms chasing money.  I am sure there had to be a car load of them at the pier.[:-]




rogo727 -> RE: Carnival cruises...amazing deals! :P (2/17/2013 12:38:53 AM)

I can speak for those who actually have taken cruises with them. Twice. It was a wonderful experience. It's a shame that this one thing will forever mark them.

My wife and I have taken two cruises and we enjoyed both. But doubt if we take another.

Won't do any good. The stock, after the initial small selloff, has largely stabilized.

If you think about market share of the cruise industry, they have something like 50%, so you'd figure that half of the cruise ship problems / disasters would belong to them by virtue of their market share if nothing else.




Neilster -> RE: Carnival cruises...amazing deals! :P (2/17/2013 12:51:27 AM)

There are definitely dodgy bastards (bastardettes?) running some of these companies. The cruise lines have their legal position pretty tightly sown up, so suing Carnival may be difficult.

This industry is growing fast and the evidence is that people soon forget about this sort of incident. Cruising is a good fit for Americans because they only want to unpack once, want to visit exotic destinations but want all the comforts of home. Cruising is generally an enjoyable experience also. My parents went on the new Queen Elizabeth around the Mediterranean and loved it. It was also cost effective when you consider the convenience, facilities, paid for accommodation and included meals.

Cheers, Neilster

Yeah I meant if they get hit with a large penalty judgment for basically forcing passengers to stay aboard ship instead of docking earlier just to save a few bucks on air fare. It'll drop a good ways if that happens and you can always buy extra shares when you buy back the short and take some more profits on the way back up. But as I said, the media may just be reporting rumors right now, fact checking is a thing of the past with them these days.

Well, buy the put then rather than the unlimited risk of shorting the stock. Or, sell the put and realize the upside potential after it resumes its climb. If the Costa Concordia disaster didn't damage their stock long-term, having some passengers pooping in bags and eating ham sandwiches for a few extra days won't kill 'em.

No risk, no reward, I never hedge. That said I never invest anything I can't afford to lose.

And I never lose anything I can afford to reward any hedge I make on a risk.

WOW. Well, I asked.[&o][X(]




Neilster -> RE: Carnival cruises...amazing deals! :P (2/17/2013 4:29:07 AM)

That would be an underground house in Coober Pedy, which is an opal mining town in outback Australia where lots of people live in "dugouts" cut into hillsides. Their temperature stays almost constant (despite the extreme swings outside) without requiring air-con and they are quiet.
