The conditions on the Carnival cruise ship Triumph were ‘horrible, just horrible,’ passengers said after docking on land on Feb. 14.
Over 4,200 passengers were finally freed from the Carnival cruise ship Triumph on Friday Feb. 14, after enduring unsanitary conditions, food shortages and having to camp out on deck during five days at sea after the ship lost power on Feb. 10.
“It was horrible, just horrible” Maria Hernandez, 28, of Angleton, Texas told Fox News on Feb. 15.
“It just feels so good to be on land again and to feel like I have options,” Tracey Farmer said. “I’m just ready to see my family.”
Horrible Conditions On Board The Cruise Ship
Trash cans and sinks of human waste, feces-smeared walls and mushy floors inside the cruise ships are some of the conditions these passengers had to endure during their unfortunate stay.
The urinals were covered up and trash cans lined with plastic bags for people to use for bathrooms on board the ship.

Rian Tipton, 29, who was on a bachelorette party with her friends, told People that some passengers ignored the rule imposed, asking passengers to defecate in a biohazard bag.
She said, “[There] are people who just don’t follow the rules, so they either go in their toilets or in the public restrooms. Toilets started to overflow and so were the trash cans! People were literally peeing and pooping in the trash cans. The worst that I’ve heard is people going into the public bathrooms and seeing feces on the wall.”
Those on ship will receive a full refund for their vacation, and each get $500 for their pain and suffering. They were also offered a 25 percent discount on future three to five day cruises, and 15 percent discount on a six or seven day cruise.
