1. SOUNDBITE: Rebekah Poret / Carnival Triumph Passenger

Our dads are best friends and we're best friends so we just kind of went on the trip together, experienced new experiences together.

2. SOUNDBITE: Rebekah Poret / On Carnival Triumph With Best Friend

I was eating fruit at every meal. I was eating fruit and maybe a piece of chicken every now and then with ketchup.

(REPORTER: Did you have to wait in line?)

SOUNDBITE: Rebekah Poret / On Carnival Triumph With Best Friend: Oh yeah. The line was either, if you got there early it was about 30 minutes. And if you got there late it was about two hours.

3. SOUNDBITE: Allie McKerreghan / On Carnival Triumph With Best Friend:

We live out in the country and I've never seen people out in the country do this so I'm going to probably say we've done worse than this and we've been using our business in a can. We've been sleeping out in the hallways where it's burning hot. And I got a couple seasick and it's just bad. I don't think I want to go on this anymore.

(REPORTER: What do you appreicate now that you're back?)

4. SOUNDBITE: Rebekah Poret / Carnival Triumph Passenger:

Food. Warmth. Water. Plumbing. Plumbing.

And at least some new clothes.

The door was like shut at one point and the lights went out. Except for the tiny emergency lights at the bottom. And all the doors shut and it just got super cold and super loud. And then it got super-duper scary and I was like Daddy what's happening and he goes 'I have no idea baby girl but you just gotta be ok and then the room steward came and she, Tonya, she fixed the room. She's like me and Allie's second mother. She's amazing. She was like a guardian angel.
