An Antarctic cruise ship operated by Polar Cruises out of Bend, Oregon, has lost an engine in high seas, but is limping safely to its scheduled port, the Argentine Navy said. The ship has 100...

My Carnival splendor lost ALL power when its engine caught FIRE, 2010. We had to be towed back ! Oh, guess how much the Carnival clowns reimbursed me ? SQUAT ! ! ! Zero ! ! !

@jokerarayko Say what you want Cracker ; if trying to protect my family and job makes me a RASCIST in you "oh so well educated world" , then i AM a rascist .You are too quick to JUDGE others and your the one that made all sort of assumptions about me .I suggest you taste the stainless blade of Liberalism you Stalinist do gooder.You also need to wake up to reverse rascism aand i'm not in the least bit interested in sorting out other countries problems. Wars will end when soldiers refuse to fight

So did the ship & people aboard, if there were still people on it, make it home?

@poulsontheprick You never answer questions. All that ever comes out of your replies are gibberish trash that is full of childish banter fit for a nine-year old. I'm sorry for your kids. I hope they don't get stuck in childhood like you.

@poulsontheprick Name calling never wins you anything. Have some decency and manners for a change. But I guess, you will never have those, eh? That explains why you got laid off. You must have had the dirtiest piehole in the ship.

@poulsontheprick I'm Canadian, so don't think I don't know about foreigners replacing the native's jobs. If you think about it, would companies replace good employees with bad ones? Sure, they will be saving money, but I'm sure that they would not risk their company for saving a few bucks. In today's economy, the bad one's get laid off, the good one's stay. You just didn't cut it, man. Stop blaming other people for your shortcomings and look at comment first before calling me names. Get a grip.

@poulsontheprick (cont.) I owned up to my shortcomings and I enlisted in the Navy. I'm also currently studying at UBC with full tuition paid for by the Navy. I never blamed anyone for getting laid off. In fact, things turned out better for me. What happens to you can be mended. Blaming a race for losing your job is just stupidity. Besides, sue the guy. What he did is illegal. Don't go ranting over the internet with your racist comments.

@poulsontheprick I said I worked on the airport before. I was laid off before. I know how it feels. You're a racist since you're blaming a race for getting laid off. I want to blame the Indian immigrants for taking my job at the airport for me, but I didn't because it's stupid. You're not understanding the big picture here. Companies or skippers will never replace workers with worse ones. You simply didn't cut it. It has nothing to with being a Filipino or an Irish. Simple as that.

Why the political/ religious debate? It's a fucking ship! It's like trying to masturbate to a horror movie! Get a life people!

@poulsontheprick My dad went back to study when he was 51 years old because he thought he wasn't satisfied with his skills. I don't see why it would be so difficult. But, I understand your frustration. I was out of job for almost a year. Your choice of words and the sudden change of tone suggest that someone else is typing this for you. But it doesn't matter. I would suggest taking a one year course in a trade school. It really worked out for me. It's never too late to study.

You are very noble not being critical of cheap foreign labour but its a fact.What the hellis a guy of 47 gona do ? Piss off back to college for 4 years of finger intensive study ?C'MON see it with some age friendly compassion .I don't HATE anyone, but i WILL PROTECT the job that serves my children.

@poulsontheprick You see, you lack comprehension to understand what I said. Canada has one of the largest number of immigrants in the world. Do you at least understand that? I'm actually in the Navy. I'm an electronics technician and I'm currently stationed in Victoria. Why do you think I ended up in this video? I served in Iraq and Libya. I think I know what it takes to be at sea. I've lost my job as an Aeronautic technician during the recession. But I owned it up and I studied again. (cont.)

@poulsontheprick Stating that you're not agreeing from the very start is being short sighted and just confirms that your views are racist. Bye.

@poulsontheprick Funny how you claim things about me when you never back them up. I might as well say that your left nut is missing because when the doctor attempted to circumcise you, your dick was too small and he accidentally removed your nut instead. I have served in Libya and have seen the atrocities of racism on blacks in that country. They are foreign workers but they were killed just because they generalised that all blacks are mercenaries. They generalised, just like you did.

@poulsontheprick I have a sense of humor, but this isn't the right place or time. I never take racism lightly. It's everything that's wrong in this world. Your jokes are shallow. Anyone above 5 years of age would get them. Guilt? Better check what it means on the dictionary because I don't think you understand what it means. Are you catholic? You sure have a potty mouth for a catholic.

@poulsontheprick What about my choice of words? I've been writing like this was since grade 9. You never said that you're a fisherman. I assumed that you worked on a cruise ship since the Filipinos shown here are working on a cruise ship. You seem misguided. Being at sea is being at sea. I don't just work on the wires. Do you actually think electronics get broken everyday? I also work on deck during high storms. I go outside to help on the equipment. I get my boots dirty too.

@poulsontheprick Thanks, but I'm sure it went over your head because it wasn't meant as humor. But I guess that's expected of you.

I worked on ships and had been insituations like this, its scary but there so much of adrenalin rush that words cannot describe it, i was a deck supervisor so i had to be on the deck with my crew all time while passengers are inside there cabins. I loved every bit of it and i love mother nature which is the most powerful force exists.

Limping safely in high seas or sinking unsafely; now admittedly limping ain't all that bad. The (or those) remaining engine(s) earned their keep, but clearly demonstrated that whoever calculated engine capacity under these high seas conditions missed the required backup engine capacity. As usual our technical leaders think they have controlled Mother Nature, only to have Mother Nature point out the idiocy of their ways. AP should have talked to those on board, those cruise barfers that survived.

@poulsontheprick You're the reason Europe is stagnant. Apathetic and racist. You say things like Stalinist and Liberalism, but they do not fit anything that I have said. You're just spouting gibberish, you clearly don't know what these words mean. "Wars will end when soldiers refuse to fight" Are you stupid? Do you actually think that all wars are fought with soldiers? Does Africa ring a bell to you? Too quick to judge others? Speak for yourself. You were the first one to judge me in your reply.
