Nov. 10, 2010 -- The 4,500 passengers onboard the stranded Carnival Splendor cruise ship won't likely reach land for another day.
The damaged ship is being towed to San Diego at an excruciatingly slow pace -- four miles an hour. And the passengers aren't exactly enjoying Beef Wellington and Baked Alaska on their day at sea -- try SPAM instead, brought in by the U.S. Navy along with other supples.
The ship was on the first leg of a seven-day cruise when its engines broke down in a fire, initially leaving passengers with no working toilets or showers. There is still no air-conditioning, telephone or hot food service.
Carnival has promised passengers a full refund for the cruise, as well as a complimentary future cruise "equal to the amount paid for this voyage."
"We know this has been an extremely trying situation for our guests, and we sincerely thank them for their patience," said Gerry Cahill, president and CEO of Carnival Cruise lines in a statement Monday.
Still, not everyone is impressed by that offer.
"I'd say, 'No thank you!' That's like getting food poisoning at a restaurant and them offering you a gift certificate to come back," quipped Jennifer Blair, who has followed the passengers' plight from Long Beach, Calif.
Our question to you today: What would be a good reward for the stranded cruise passengers?
