    gives me the willies!....To be stranded out there in the ocean...sharks...perhaps no life jackets either....something out of the "Titanic".....Several people died because they panicked.....I probably would have been one of them.

    It's very sad what happened to the passengers, and also very avoidable. Heads will roll on this one.

    The captain and crew didn't do their jobs. Inexcusable. :mad:

    No practice drills. Inexcusable. My daughter's family went on a cruise a few months ago, and they did a drill within the first hour out of the harbor.

    Carnival Cruise Fantasy. I'm not sure under which flag; maybe either American or Bahamian. Homeport is Charleston, SC. Regardless, if it uses an American port, it has to follow American safety guidelines.

    That's eerie because the 100th year anniversary or memorial date (for lack of better word) of the Titanic sinking is this April 14th of 2012 which is on my 40th birthday. Toooo eearie.

    From what I have read news articles about this tragic incident, it reminds me very much of Titanic. :shock:

    The captain said the rocks weren't on the chart? Give me a break. That area has been sailed for hundreds of years, and charted for a looooong time. Also, that was a common route for the cruise ship. The captain knew that area, and the rocks didn't all of a sudden appear. He is sooooo full of it. :mad:

    Right, the ship owner said that the captain changed the route without an approval. And the ship has data recorders a.k.a. black boxes so it is a great chance for investigators and prosecutors to examine them for any evidences that caused the ship sink.
