    Damn.....I hope those 70 unaccounted for will be found soon. Glad to see at least a majority of folks are alright.

    the 70 unaccounted for have all mostly been rescued. A lot were still clinging to the listing boat and rescue helicopters were plucking them off the boat.

    It really isn't like Poseidon Adventure as in that movie a lot more people died and it was a rogue wave that did in the ship not a drunk captain.
    oh yeah they arrested the captain:
    Overhead Bin - Captain of cruise ship that ran aground off Italy arrested

    Machines are only as good as the people operating it.

    Maybe they didn't do anything wrong, maybe an underwater quake or something moved a underwater reef/obstruction/etc.

    Maybe he was drunk like Captain Valdeez.

    I bet a lot less people would have been hurt and missing/dead, if most people weren't stupid mindless sheep and just panic like a bunch of idiots.

    I'm sure they will be - near, far, wherever they are.

    Seriously, hope they find the 70 unaccounted for and unharmed, too.

    I've been on a Costa cruise before, it sucked.

    EDIT: It was the Serena, which is identical to this one... eesh.
    Well, maybe not so identical anymore...

    Its down to 40 unaccounted people so good news there.

    Also, they found 3 people still alive trapped in the ship, a honeymooning Korean couple (who have been rescued) and a third who they still can't reach.
