There are many things that can go wrong when sailing the open sea, from fires to Covid to engine trouble. But the number 1 fear everyone has on a boat? To absorb water.

Travelers on a recent Carnival Vista cruise experienced that fear firsthand when the water began to flood the halls midway through the trip.

“Woke up to water pouring into our cabin… our lives flashed before our eyes,” wrote TikToker @adrienne_marie_1 alongside a video that has garnered more than 13.7 million views.

@adrienne_marie_1 Woke up to water pouring into our cabin…our lives flashed before our eyes #cruise #titanic #flood #carnival #wet #survived ♬ My Heart Will Go On (Titanic) – Maliheh Saeedi & Faraz Taali

In the clip (set to an instrumental version of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” of course), guests can be seen in a flooded hallway where passenger rooms are located.

Of course people on the internet referred to: Titanic and its iconic characters, Jack and Rose.

“Run up and down the halls yelling ‘rose, rose, where are you rose’,” joked one user.

“Oh dear god!!! This is why I’ve never gone on cruises!! My nightmare”, exclaimed another.

While the video of the flooding was scary, the TikToker who posted the video clarified what happened in the comments – a burst pipe. The boat took no water. (In 2018, a waterline break also caused a flood of the corridor on a Carnival Dream ship.)

In a follow-up video, the TikToker posted more in-depth footage and clarified that she was “no mess” Carnival or its crew.

@adrienne_marie_1 Disclaimer!! We’re not talking about the crusieline or the crew. Just documenting a scary experience that turned out to be funny. We really woke up to this flood and the water down our ankles…so titanic vibes for about 5 minutes”

“We really woke up to this flood and the water past our ankles,” she added, joking that guests were given a truly “immersive experience” during the trip.

The TikToker also noted in the comments that guests were not getting refunds.

It was not made clear where the ship had left or where it was going.

londonbusinessblog.com contacted Carnival for comment.
