FORT MYERS, Fla.-
With the Carnival cruise disaster fresh in everyone's minds, is it safe to set sail?
AAA Travel Manager Marsha Kut has booked countless cruises and said her clients have never had any major problems. Since the Carnival Disaster, Marsha said cruise sales Haven't slowed down.
"We haven't seen any concerns with our clients as far as them booking or cancelling." Kut said.
She said if your dream vacation turns into a travel nightmare, one item could save you.
"Always, always have your passport I know you don't have to have it if you're going on a Caribbean cruise but, should something happen that you need your passport to get home. If you're off the ship and can't get back on or if you need to get on a plane, you should always travel with a passport." Kut said.
If your ship stalls, don't panic. Marsha said keeping a close eye on the Captain will steer you in the right direction.
" There's a mandatory drill at the beginning within the 1st hour so you will be drilled on where to go in case of an emergency. They've got it all planned out and set up. Just follow the rules know what to expect in case of an emergency and you'll be fine." Kut said.
She said while it might be rough for those on board the Triumph right now, most cruises are smooth sailing.
"This is a very rare occurrence people shouldn't be frightened." Kut said.
