Watching TV news, reading blogs today.....News of the Italian ship captain is growing worse by the minute.....There is a recording of the local dock master extolling the captain to return to his ship from his position on a small boat nearby. While the capt. says he is not refusing to return to the ship, but he won't go back anyway.
With the recording and testimony by many travelers that the crew was ill-trained/ignorant of their jobs, or just did not care! Horrible. Every person familiar with protocol knows the entire situation points to major problems for the entire vessel line....though much of this is directly laid at the feet of the captain.
Sad, and now the body count is rising....topping 10 with more than 20 missing.
