Interesting Story about The Captain of the "Concordia"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the link , Shari. I hadn't heard some of this info. Sounds like this rescued crewman was quite a hero. This is the first account I've seen of a crew member doing anything heroic. Also, so glad to see that he and the honeymooner were rescued- wow 40 hours later, that's incredible.

Shari, thanks for the link. It does sound bad for the Captain. It amazes me that over 4,200 passengers survived. There has to be a lot of stories of heroism from some of the crew and passengers.

We sailed on back-to-back cruises on the Costa Romantica in the late 1990's and did not like the cruise line then. It was trying to break into the Ameircan market. We told ourselves never to sail with them again. We have sailed 29 times. Now I see we made the right decision. In this day and age we thought the only things to think about when cruising is 1. A rogue wave 2. terrorism. It's looking real bad for COSTA and CARNIVAL CORP.

I heard that CCL's stock is down 20% at the bell. :ohmy:

Interesting, since the US stock exchange is closed today for a holiday. Now sure how it is "down 20% at the bell".

I would think CCL is traded in more than one market so maybe referring to world indices?

We have an elderly couple from here in Minneapolis who were on the cruise..they are still missing. It's all so sad and tragic.
