    A liner owned by the same company as the Costa Concordia, on which at least 25 people died when it ran aground off Italy last month, was adrift in the Indian Ocean on Monday after a fire in the engine room left it without power, the company said.

    I am waiting for the Costa fire sail, that is a old old ship it was built in 1969.

    I wonder if they offered SPAM like those on the Carnival ship that drifted in the pacific?

    Really? I thought it did. Thnx for letting me know this. And, although we don't normally eat Spam, we have, we like it, and would
    eat it again if that was the only thing available. :doubleup:

    Oh, I know I'll be hearing about this from my boss tomorrow! He would LOVE me to cancel my cruise so he doesn't have to have a substitute for my shift. If he mentions it, I think I'll just take extra days off... tell him the ship was full of the norovirus and we couldn't find a port that would let us in.
