I think it's a tragedy when anyone dies but even more of a tragedy when they die doing something so silly.
Taking a shortcut from one balcony to the next on the outside of the ship can only be called silly, no matter how you slice it.
I feel for the family that's left to grieve as I'm sure that they too must feel it was so senseless.
You just simply cannot protect people from themselves in all situations.
My views on something like this may sound harsh but so be it--- it someone is so mindless as to climb about on a ships balcony, then it's better that they go and take no one with them than to later maybe do something stupid and get some innocent person or persons killed.
