‘We All Heard A Big Thump And The Ship Shook’
Not sure how your last cruise went, but when you start out your story with, “…we all heard a big thump and the ship shook!” You know it’s not going to be good! The Mike & Carla Morning Show had Morty back in the studio telling his vacation story!
Morty, executive producer for The M&C Morning Show, got to take a vacation with his mom, so they booked a cruise. Going up and down the Mexican Riviera for 7 full days was the plan…Mazatlán, Puerta Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas. He’s mom had flown in from Hawaii and it was going to be a great time.
Seriously? We heard a big thump and the ship shook!
The first day out to sea, as Morty explains it, they’re eating breakfast at about 9am. All of a sudden they hear a big thump and the ship shook a little bit! Here’s where it get a little interesting…Mike O’Brian or Carla Rea would have been freaking out! A THUMP and the ship SHOOK! Carla admits she would have been running up and down the deck screaming. But being who Morty is, they thought, “huh, that was weird”, but kept eating breakfast.
Long story short, the ship had apparently lost their propulsion system. The captain comes on the speaker and says that because of this, we will be going at half speed. Oh, and we’re not going to make any stops except for Cabo!
So, as others are getting upset, Morty is enjoying trivia, the buffets, and, with his Firestick, VGK hockey! Why not? The cruise line gave them extra bucks for the inconvenience and a little something extra at the end of the journey. All in all, it wasn’t as bad for Morty or his mom!
On the other hand, M&C wanted to hear your vacation nightmare…and there were quite a few. From bad camping trips to a “mother-daughter” trip to New Orleans. Listen to the segment below and see if anything comes to mind for you. If so, go ahead and drops us a line! Mike&CarlaMailbag@963kklz.com
