Lawsuits and Congressional investigations are all on the way after a cruse ship ran afoul while drifting off the Mexican waters. This not love boat has been defined by some as a floating toilet, or a Petri dish on water, a floating hell...etc.

The cruise ship departed Galveston on 2/7 and three days later after it was 150 miles off Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, a fire knocked out its primary power source, crippling the plumbing system and leaving the ship up a creek without a paddle, sort of speak.

The cruise ship company says it would give each passenger $500 a free flight home, plus a full refund for their trip and expenses, as well as a credit for another cruise.
