Another four months and this could have happened on the 100 year anniversary of the Titanic sinking. Although this one is half-sunk. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/16/w...-raises-questions-about-crew-and-captain.html Untrained idiots didn't help matters at all, but surely the cruise line will work on PR damage control immediately. "Giancarlo Sammatrice, 22, a cook from Vittoria, Sicily, was on vacation with his girlfriend. “I have always been scared of those boats, but my girlfriend kept on saying that it was romantic, and I gave in,” he said. “There were not enough lifeboats. The pilots were not sailors but waiters who had no idea how to maneuver and kept on having us turning in circles.” “It was the first and certainly the last cruise of my life,” he said. " Then again ... 'Once she boarded a lifeboat, Ms. Grasso said, the helmsman appeared ill equipped to bring the scores of travelers on his vessel to safety: he kept banging into the ship, unable to steer the lifeboat to the shore, until a passenger shoved him aside and took the lead.' That definitely would have been me - no patience at all for some idiot in an emergency situation.
