Thousands stranded on disabled Carnival cruise ship
No one was injured aboard the ship, but it was adrift off the southern Yucatan Peninsula for an entire day before a tugboat arrived.
The ship has no power, and passengers have been forced to sleep on deck in tents as there is no air conditioning in the cabins. The toilets don’t work either, and passengers have to make do with bags or buckets, The Mail reports.
“It’s a big mess, there’s no power, there’s no toilets, there’s no food — it’s like a bunch of savages on there,” Mr. Nutt told CNN on Monday. “People are fighting over food and stuff — that’s a bunch of savages. It’s ridiculous.”
