(Newser) – Carnival Cruise Lines has had some foul-smelling publicity of late, and the company hopes to fix that with an unusual offer to passengers: If they immediately hate the cruise they're on, the company will refund their fare plus 10%, reports the Houston Chronicle. Passengers will be put aboard a plane home, and Carnival will cover that and all other related travel expenses. On the odd chance they'd like to try again, they'll get a $100 credit for a future trip. The one catch is that passengers must notify the crew they want off the ship within the first 24 hours.

Carnival Cruise Lines needs to get out of the cruise business and get into something they can handle- like being a real carnivel with rides and a midway.

In other news, the cruise ships will be 100% automated with no crew members.
