Renting out Cruise Ships for Hurricane Victims, a Brilliant Idea Indeed
Who says FEMA is not doing their job. They just rented out Three Carnival Cruise Line ships to shelter 7,000 Hurricane Victims from the Katrina Disaster. Brilliant idea and if and when we get another Hurricane they can sail out of its way, without causing further hardship. They have showers, food, giant institutional style galleys and no one can complain, they are on a cruise ship. I mean think of it these people will be taken on Carnival Cruise Ships with names like; The Ecstasy, the Sensation and the Holiday. Hey I want to be a Hurricane Victim? What a brilliant idea to rent out these ships, perfect solution. Take a look:
The Cruise Ship Ecstasy and Cruise Ship Sensation hold 2,606 people and the Cruise Ship Holiday takes over 1,800. This does not include the 1580 person crew to help the Hurricane Victims enjoy a slice of paradise during their previous hellish ordeal.
Likewise the water ship platforms of the US Navy are also the way to mobilize the relief efforts, we ought be thankful for such a strong and powerful military. We got what it takes. Lets all get on board for the relief efforts and stop criticizing the response time, after all this was the biggest Hurricane disaster ever to hit our shores. Think on this please, we have some brilliant people working on this and the Cruise Ship is an ingenious way of help alleviate some of the chaos.
