A cruise ship that had no working toilets for five days this summer hurt the
entire cruising industry this year. That according to Dave Friedman with Hobbit Travel in La Crosse. He said not only was that an ugly incident, but a series of problems on Carnival ships apparently caused a falloff in bookings on Carnival cruises.
He says that cruises were still the most popular thing to do while on vacation and rebounding from a series of bad mishaps on cruise ships this year will fade into the sunset soon enough.
