KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. -- Carnival Cruise Lines has seen its share of problems this year, but that did not stop Frances Prince and Mollie McCall from booking a seven day cruise.
"She wouldn't go without me and I wouldn't go without her," said Prince.
But on May 9 Herb Green, McCall's fiance', was killed in an accident on State Road 16 near Starke. Prince is still trying to cope with the loss.
Prince, McCall and Herb Green were good friends.
"Tragedies happen," she said. "You can't schedule them."
On May 10, the day before they were to set sail, they contacted their travel agent with the bad news.
"Their big suggestion was see if you can find somebody else to take your place," Prince said.
Prince said she also called Carnival Cruise to try and reschedule the cruise.
