Episode: Carnival Splendor 2010

Earlier this week the Carnival Cruise Line’s ship “Carnival Splendor” suffered an engine fire that left the ship helpless at sea until the US Navy and the tugs arrived.

Stewart Chiron: The Cruise Guy® America’s most quoted cruise expert. Contributor to ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, WGN, Good Morning America, CNBC, Travel Channel, and CNN.

Marquis Horace: LA resident who was on the seven-night journey. He chats about his stateroom, the announcements made, and how the crew kept the passengers informed of all the happenings aboard the vessel.

The passengers recall how professional the staff and Cruise Director John Heald was during the incident (fire) at sea.

  2. Thanks for a great show…and thanks for showing what Carnival was up against when you have ” tourist ” onboard that don’t understand there can indeed be a “flameless fight” where electrical is hot enough to burn and smoke, but not flame.

    The good new is that your first guest was a “traveler” and she represented what the traveling adventure spirit is all about.

    Sounds like the Splendor had many more travelers than tourist which I am sure made the crews job much easier.

  3. Hey, Doug!

    I read your post on the Cruise Critic thread about the Splendor YouTube video. I thought it was brilliant. I loved hearing my good friend John Heald making announcements in the background and I was thrilled by the way the passengers were reacting to the entire situation.

    Great radio show… I’ve subscribed for the weekly updates.

    All the best for continued success for your show.

  4. I have never been on a Carnival cruise and am glad I wasn’t on this one. Have been on 14 cruises with other lines and have never had a problem.
