You may have heard about the recent fire on Carnival Cruise Line's largest ship, Splendor, which resulted in a loss of electricity and civilized living conditions on board.
While the nearly 4500 passengers and crew members made the best of things, some took the crisis harder than others.
Gourmands, for instance.
Residents of Haiti, for example, who probably wouldn't have minded an airdrop of mini croissants and Spam.
But the group who had the hardest time of all were bloggers, Tweeters and others with various internet addictions. For those people, two days without a cell signal or an on-line connection became one of Dante's nine circles of Hell.
On the other hand, none of the honeymoon couples had any idea that any crisis had occurred and were quite surprised to find that the ship had been towed into San Diego this morning.

We're happy you're all home safe. A tip of the hat to the Mexican tug boats and to the U.S. Navy.
