Passengers compare scene inside Caribbean cruise ship to the Titanic after 50 rooms were flooded The scene on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean drew comparisons to the Titanic as 50 staterooms on Deck 9 were flooded. A breach in the Carnival Dream's fire extinguishing system led to water pouring into a corridor. One passenger said people had been relocated to the spa to sleep on yoga mats. Marla DeAnn Haase, a passenger, posted images of the flooding on Facebook . She wrote: "Um….FB folks…..this is a rare moment of internet connection ….we are flooding on a cruise, we heard the violins and the silverware all came crashing down. What in the world….say a prayer for us all." That was a reference to violinists continuing to play as the Titanic went down.

Another said: "I literally thought this was a scene from Titanic." Images from the ship showed staff trying to clean up the mess with buckets. Carnival Cruises said passengers affected would get full refunds, a 50 per cent credit for a future cruise, and could be flown home before the end of the cruise.
