Pat Kiernan adds perspective to the nightmare on the cruise ship: "Mostly this is uncomfortable for people, that's all it is"

As the dramatic Alabama arrival of the Carnival Triumph cruise ship unfolded live on CNN, guest host Donny Deutsch anchored "Piers Morgan Tonight" from the network's New York studio, keeping viewers up to date, while also adding some overall insight and perspective to the situation.

With Erin Burnett reporting live from Mobile, Ala., Deutsch held down the ship in Manhattan, welcoming a trio of guests charged with keeping the nightmare cruise in context.

Being careful not to minimize any of the drama and trauma incurred over the course of the last few days, Pat Kiernan noted that things could have been a whole lot worse:

"Mostly this is uncomfortable for people, that's all it is," said the NY1 morning news anchor. "It's a horrible vacation, it's a nightmare vacation. But they're uncomfortable right now, and they're bored. They're up there on the decks waving to the CNN helicopter."

Referencing some of the world's most-recent tragedies, the guest host cautioned against overreaction and hyperbole:

"With the atrocities we've seen, with little children being murdered, we've got to remember, these are people on vacation, that are inconvenienced," said Deutsch.

Echoing a similar sentiment, Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle offered her succinct analysis:

"It's a disastrous vacation, it's not a disaster."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, and hear criminal defense lawyer Rikki Klieman use her professional expertise to explain whether or not any of the passengers may want to consider a legal course of action moving forward.

    When we are at the point in society that we consider having a bad vacation and being inconvenienced a disaster, we need to look at our priorities.
