Don't misinterpret this as a bash on Carnival Cruises. I've been on Carnival Cruises and had fun. However, they've had their problems of late. They've had more than one ship break down and have be towed back in by the US Coast Guard. Of course, they don't pay diddly squat for American taxes because they register their ships in Panama even though about 80 percent of their customers are Americans. I know there are business reasons for that. But we the taxpayer then end up stuck with the bill for millions of dollars to tow their broken ships to port. Shouldn't Carnival have to then reimburse the US Treasury for the money that had to be paid to rescue their ships?
