Cruise passengers recall nightmare experience

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

They're calling it a cruise ship of lies, deceit and alcohol for the cameras.

Those allegations are part of the latest lawsuit filed against the Carnival cruise ship that was stuck in the gulf for nearly a week.

Barbie Anderson and Michelle Maddox called their time on the triumph a nightmare.

The women who are from Brazoria County were aboard when the ship caught fire nearly two weeks ago off the coast of Mexico.

They say during the midst of their turmoil, they were given beer and music while a Carnival Cruise videographer taped them.

They also claim in their lawsuit, the ship wasn't towed to Mexico to avoid a salvage fee.

Houston attorney Frank Spagnoletti represents some of the passengers.

He says' "we believe they didn't want to have a salvage claim under maritime law salvage claim can result in a percentage of the ship in this instance given the value of this ship it could've been 50 to $100 million."

We attempted to get a comment from reps at Carnival but so far our call has not been returned.
