If you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the unsuspecting participants in Carnival Cruise’s new Lord of the Flies at sea program, you’ve underestimated the apparently vengeful god they’ve angered. Just as they were finally on their way home and ready to start their lives over, the ex-hostages found themselves once again stranded — this time on a bus halfway to New Orleans.

But welcome home. [The Atlantic]
