    There are multiple ways to get Carnival to shape up.
    Don't let them in US waters. Otherwise, save the passengers. If you want to say "for Pete's sake" you might want to consider that members of the USCG are going to be working and getting paid whether we save them or they are sitting around watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the fuel costs are already budgeted in and then offset somewhere else if need be, rendering the true cost of the rescue v. what it would have cost for the same people, gas, etc without the rescue virtually a wash.

    What makes you think the Coast Guard tows back in Cruse ships?
    One of the ships that towed the Triumph was the Resolve Pioneer,

    Not a CG Ship.
