Thank you for posting this information. I was glad to read your post because I would hate to think that they sent all those fantastic people and that beautiful ship to their end. I often think about them and hope they are resting in peace. I realize that what they did, by staying on board and trying to outrun the storm is the usual way to handle storms of this sort, but it was still a great loss. Not only to their families, but to those of us who sailed with them and on the ship. It doesn't matter how matter times you sailed on her or with the crew, you loved it. I sailed on her twice and in all the pictures of me, I always had a smile on my face. Those were the two best vacations of my life and I miss the crew and ship every day.
