In light of events onboard Carnival Triumph, which is currently being towed back to port following an engine fire onboard, we thought we’d share the results of a recent poll we ran on our homepage.
While some problems onboard are obviously worthy of complaint — lack of power, working toilets and air conditioning spring to mind — we wondered how likely our readership was to actually file a complaint with the cruise company.
As you can see in the graphic above, the overwhelming majority of you either have not had reason to complain (39.03 percent) or addressed your concerns with cruise ship staff while onboard the ship (21.59 percent), adding up to over 60 percent of the 579 total respondents.
Of voters who have filed a complaint, about 18 percent considered the complaint to be minor, and 20.9 percent said the complaint was a major one.
So how do you handle problems onboard? Do you complain? And what have your biggest complaints been? Comment below, and tell us.
