In the Concordia case, the laws of Italy also apply. Schettino may face charges including manslaughter, shipwreck and abandoning a ship when passengers were still on board, chief prosecutor Francesco Verusio said. Abandoning ship is a maritime crime that has been on the books for centuries in Spain, Greece and Italy, according to Alessandra Batassa, a lawyer in Rome, although many other countries have long abandoned it.

Abandoning a ship in danger is a violation of maritime law.

It was reported that the ship had not conducted a lifeboat drill at the beginning of the cruise. I've been on 5 cruises and every one of them had a mandatory drill within a few hours of leaving port. There are also reports that the ship had other safety or maintenance issues in the last year or so. I think Costa Cruises (owned by Carnival) is in some deep you-know-what.

Wasn't this the second incident with this company, too?

It's all just so sad since it could have been avoided.

I've been on two; one was a Carnival ship to the Virgin Islands and we did the mandatory drill. The second one was an MSC ship (out of Italy, shocker) and there was no drill completed.

Going on my 6th in 3 weeks. All previous cruises have done the mandatory drill. No one really pays attention though to excited to set sail I guess.

Jen - are you really setting sail if on a cruise ship? after all, unless you're on a windjammer cruise, there is no sail.

He was very hungry and it took him 45 minutes to plan his trip into the lifeboat.

Eventually it will be reported that when the ship began to list and dishes and food slid off the tables, all that pasta and sauce covered the decks makinging them slippery. As the list became more severe, the captain lost his balance on the slippery deck and that is how he landed in the lifeboat.

Way, way south.
Barefoot Windjammer cruises were the best. More fun than a regular cruise by far.

Unfortunately, the family that ran the company fell into turmoil and they ceased operations some years ago.

There is another, more upscale sailing vessel cruise company called Star Clippers.

No, not a windjammer cruise. Sorry for the use of the idiom... crazy

Pass…

I have more important things in life to worry about than your critique of my puncuation and use of idioms on these threads.

Thanks!
