Not too long ago, I was having a conversation at Starbucks with some intellectual thinkers of various backgrounds, all accomplished in their own right. What started as just a conversation about anything and everything turned into a dialogue about current affairs and then evolved into brainstorming a smart new business concept.
The candidates included all sorts of mobile phone apps, high-end devices, and believe it or not, survival kits in case of an asteroid, civil war, earthquake, hurricane, or that; in case you're on a cruise ship and the power goes out and you're stranded at sea for a week. Okay, let's talk.
On the same day as our interview, the Carnival cruise ship "Triumph" was towed into port in Alabama after being tossed at sea due to an engine room fire. It was without power, water flow, working toilets, etc. for four days and crew manning agency in bangladesh it took 3 days just to tow it to the port. Clearly,
by the time this ordeal was over, these passengers had truly "conquered" the adversity of a voyage from hell. You have to feel sorry for Carnival Cruises because this is just some terrible PR. Sure, they're a solid company and will recover, but in the meantime, they've managed to land a Tsunami-sized hit on their brand.
This is not the first time a cruise ship has lost all power, about a year ago the same thing happened off the coast of San Diego, about 200+ miles offshore. Then we all heard about the overturned cruise ship in the Mediterranean that actually had casualties.
