How did you react last month to the Carnival cruise ship engine failure news coverage? If you had a friend or relative on-board, you were probably keenly interested and certainly sympathetic to real discomfort suffered by the passengers. Otherwise, I suspect it simply caught your attention, if at all, as an unlikely and perhaps interesting predicament. Since a safe outcome seemed clear, many people reacted without much empathy, and I’m sure some even chuckled at a less than luxurious turn of events for leisure travelers.
