In the centenary year of Titanic 1...

...0ne idiot crew presents Titanic 2 - The Italian Job.

Their evacuation drill included: Women and Children Last and The Captain Gets Off The Ship First.

Let's hope the 40 missing are still alive somewhere inside and are brought out alive, like the 3 survivors the hero divers already rescued.

I haven't yet looked into the news stories about this. The Capt. abandoned ship first? Way to go...How horrible. What were they doing so close to those rocks?

Apologies; deletion was me, having a Monday-meltdown!
What I was trying to say was, according to what I just heard on the lunchtime news, the Captain (one presumes) took the ship off course (bells and whistles supposed to sound) to wave to someone on the island it then sort of hit..... Thank god it wasn't the middle of the night and they weren't miles out to sea..... And although it's been a while since I did it, I'm sure even on a cross-channel 90 minute ferry crossing between Dover and Calais, the FIRST thing you hear when you leave port is instructions for the life-boat drill, which apparently those on the Italian ship were due to have...the day after it keeled over. Weird!!!

Diane I'm with you-- any cruise I've been on you do the muster drills within the first 2 hours after you set sail, not days later. What an avoidable tragedy.

What a tragic story; those poor passengers.

Spooky reference, Val, I thought the same thing when I watched the news on this. This morning they said 29 were still missing.

I hope they hang that captain. high. Story has it that it was due to language barrier? Puleez. You're right - IDIOTS! Cheers!!
