In every diasaster there is opportunity
« on: May 06, 2024, 06:41:35 PM »
Passengers received two options after Ruby Princess aft end hit the dock

"She told her 170,000 TikTok followers that the cruise ship was giving passengers two options. The first was to cancel the cruise and get off by 10 a.m. the next morning and get a full refund, in addition to 50% of what they paid in cruise credit for a future cruise. The second option was to stay on the boat and "party on," and get a 75% refund, in addition to 75% of what they paid in credit for a future cruise. Princess Cruises confirmed this information in a statement to Insider."

"The video blew up, receiving over 1.8 million views, and over 4,900 comments as people expressed their opinions about what Damigeana should do."

"Once the family had decided to stay, Damigeana told TikTok that they had also received an upgrade to their room, which became a suite with a balcony."

At a Thai restaurant last week, we met someone who bartended on the Ruby (long story omitted...).
We spoke briefly about cruising on Princess.
They named Commodore Nash...   Nick Crash.
The crew can be brutal. ;D

Nash got into a no win situation on the Diamond Princess attempting docking in very high winds in order to make an immediate medical evacuation.
