'FLOATING HELL':
Passenger Sues Carnival Over 'Horrifying' Conditions



MIAMI - The first lawsuit has been filed in the wake of the crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship that forced thousands of passengers to spend five days in miserable conditions on the vessel after it was paralyzed by an engine-room fire.
Texas resident Cassie Terry sued Carnival Corp. on Friday in Miami federal court. The suit seeks unspecified damages, saying Terry feared for her life or that she might suffer serious injury or illness because of the presence of raw sewage and spoiled food.
Carnival cruise ship tickets require that all lawsuits be filed in Miami. Maritime attorneys say it's difficult but not impossible to win a case unless the plaintiff can show actual injury or illness.
Terry's suit, filed less than 25 hours after the ship docked in Mobile, Ala., describes the Triumph as "a floating toilet, a floating Petri dish, a floating hell" and complains of "horrifying" conditions, according to a Reuters report.

Floating hell? I thought they were talking about what I left in the toilet this morning.
