Stranded Carnival Splendor Passengers Subsisting on Whiskey and Spam

Print comment Post Comments
The 952-foot Carnival Splendor, which was crippled off the coast of San Diego earlier this week after a fire in the engine room, is expected to reach port today, helped along by two, likely extremely large, tugboats.

The 4,500 passengers aboard have been getting by without air conditioning, hot water, or refrigeration -- but they may not remember any of it, anyway.

As a thank-you gift for putting up with the less-than-stellar voyage, Carnival thoughtfully provided free liquor to all passengers.

This, in addition to the Spam and Pop-Tarts dropped by a US Navy helicopter to provide sustenance to everyone aboard.

No, seriously -- that's what they've been eating.

Spam and Pop-Tarts.

And Jim Beam.


I'm not kidding.

Hours later...
