The cruise ship reminds us of an Amtrak train we once took to Orlando -- 27 hours of hell!

They had electrical problems, the train was OVERheated most of the time, toilets did not flush (you could see the disgust on people's faces as they tried to go in there; we had to once and were almost sick), on and on. Went to the lunch car at lunch time and found a sign saying "OUT TO LUNCH - RETURN at 2:00")! Many other things were wrong, too. It was sickening.

We wrote Amtrak afterward, and they sent us a credit for a trip from CT to Washington, D.C. We swore never again to take that train!

We sympathize with those folks, who are obviously far worse off than we were!
