Cruise Ship Risks You Should Consider Before Booking Your Next Trip

You could be stranded at sea

If there is an engine failure or some other catastrophe, you could be stuck in the open seas for days or weeks. The Carnival cruise ship Triumph was stranded at sea for a week in 2013 after an engine fire. Toilets overflowed into hallways, food rotted, and passengers had to endure it all until help arrived.
