NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Passengers on board the Crown Princess are upset after they said hundreds of toilets stopped working.
"I will never, ever, ever, ever cruise with Princess again, ever," said Sonya Flyer, a passenger.
As soon as Sonya Flye set sail on the Crown Princess, she quickly learned this would not be the care-free vacation she was longing for.
Officials with the cruise line said a blockage within the vacuum toilet system affected 410 staterooms in the aft part of the ship.
"By the bathroom, it was flooded, it was wet in the carpet," said Flye.
Some passengers could not use the toilets in their rooms for portions of the trip.
"It was quite an inconvenience," said Fonda Boyd. "If you had to get up in the middle of the night or even during the day, you had to go somewhere else to use the restroom."
